By David & Susan Wilson | Improve Savings

There's so many discounts available to Canadian seniors but unfortunately most seniors are missing out because they don’t know about them. That’s why we put together this list of the top discounts available for people over 50. To save your hard-earned money, make sure that you know what discounts you are entitled to:

1. Save on Groceries

  • M&M Food Market: 10% OFF all Regular Priced items, every Tuesday
  • Bulk Barn: 10% off for 65+ every Wednesday
  • Safeway: 10% off for Air Miles holders on the first Tuesday of the month and some stores offer senior discounts on the first Wednesday of the month

2. Over 50? Save up to 70% OFF at Thousands of Stores In Canada When You Join Senior Advantage™

You might be throwing your money away if you are over 50 years old and not a member of Senior Advantage™ which can help you save up to 70% OFF from Canada’s top brands and stores.

Senior Advantage™ members get access to thousands of discounts, coupons and deals which can help them save money at many popular stores like Sobeys, Loblaws, Canadian Tire, Metro, Safeway, Amazon, Walmart, Costco, Petro Canada, HomeDepot, Shoppers Drug Mart and many other stores.

You can save money at almost every store in Canada. I was pleasantly surprised that Senior Advantage saved me so much money at stores near my home, where I do most of my shopping. 

We’ve tried Senior Advantage and we love it. We have managed to save over $400 in our first month with Senior Advantage. It was very easy to use. I see us easily saving $300 every month. You can literally save thousands of dollars each year paying for stuff you would have to pay for anyway. We can't wait to see how much we will end up saving next month. We see ourselves as being members of Senior Advantage for a very long time.

It's never a dull moment when you see a new photo of your lovely kids or grandkids.

The way it works is you download the app from Apple or Google app store to your phone, then sign-up for a free account and create your family circle. Once you do, you can invite your family members to join your circle. When inviting your family members make sure to use their correct email addresses so it would be easier for them to join your family circle. Once you do, everyone in your family circle can share, comment and like each other pictures. You can even send voice and text messages to your family members inside the app for free!

Family Circle App does not sell your personal information to advertisers unlike Facebook. It cares about your privacy and is free to use. You can download it for free from the Google and Apple app stores. Simply enter "Family Circle App" in the app store or click one of the links below:
