Do 55-year-olds get senior discounts?

I'm sorry if this seems off-topic, but my parents were curious about senior discounts (they're both 55). Does anybody know if they would qualify? I hope it's okay to ask this here. Thanks!

Hey there! No worries about the question – it's a cute one, actually. From my experience, senior discounts often start at the age of 65. However, it really does depend on the place as some might offer discounts for those who are 55 and older. It's like a welcome to the 'senior' status kind of deal for some businesses.

My advice would be to have your parents ask wherever they go. The worst they can say is no, right? And you'd be surprised at how many places don't advertise their senior discounts but have them available upon request. For example, when I turned 55, I remember being pleasantly surprised that my local cinema offered a small discount for seniors on certain days – an excellent excuse for a movie outing if you ask me! So, just encourage your parents to inquire wherever they go shopping or when they're out for entertainment; they might start enjoying perks sooner than they think.
