2018 Grocery Store Senior Discounts: Plus, Save at Drugstores

Updated April 2, 2018

Grocery stores offer some of the most popular senior discounts available. On a certain day of the week, shoppers as young as age 55 can save 5% to 10% off their weekly shopping costs.

Just keep in mind that some grocery stores are independently run, so discounts may vary. In other cases, decisions on senior discounts are made at regional offices. Just ask at your local grocery store’s customer service desk to confirm its policy. Although this list is as up-to-date as possible, discounts are subject to change.

Some drugstores also offer senior discounts – up to 20%! – one day a week. Note, however, that these drugstore discounts don’t include prescriptions.
