Growing Older Sometimes Pays Off

I wish I'd taken a picture of my hamburger today but I didn't remember to do so before I ate it all up. (This picture is courtesy of a free image website.).

My hamburger didn't look as appetizing as this one does and I don't drink beer (or other alcohol).  I would love to have a hamburger served on a round wood platter though. ♥

This post isn't really about hamburgers but it is about how growing older sometimes pays off.

Did you know that some restaurants offer discounts to senior citizens?  The term "senior citizens" is defined differently by different restaurants.  Some say that 55+ qualify for a discount.  Some say 60+ or 65+ qualify.  The restaurant we had lunch at today offers a 10% discount off your bill for 55+ years old.  You can find lists of restaurants that offer discounts online. I found this list on The Senior List.

While researching senior discounts, I discovered that there are alternatives to AARP.  My husband and I are hesitant to join AARP due to their liberal leanings.  I did discovered AMAC (the Association of Mature American Citizens).  I know they are much more conservative but I haven't spent very much time researching it yet so I can't give two thumbs up right now.

Do you find that growing older sometimes pays off?


  1. Hi Gina!

    Getting old certainly has it's benefits. I love to go to a restaurant and see that senior menu, it just makes my heart happy. The servings are usually a little smaller, which literally makes my heart happy :0) I will have to check into AMCA - I feel the same way about AARP.

    Hugs and Love,

    1. Barb, I don't think I've been to a restaurant with a senior menu. What a great idea! I wonder if I google senior menu if restaurant suggestion will come up? xo

  2. I am not quite the age where I can get those discounts yet, so I have something to look forward too :)

    1. Connie, your day will come before you know it. I'm excited about getting a movie theater discount soon! :-)
