I really didn’t mind turning 50 because I knew I could get my AARP card and start getting in on some pretty awesome senior discounts. Mine has paid for itself several times over because I’m not afraid to use it.
There are tons of senior discounts in Kansas City, so this list is just getting started. We’ll keep adding to it as we find more. If you know of any we’ve missed or if your organization offers a senior discount, please send us an e-mail or leave a comment below!
Although we’ll do our best to keep this list currrent, do keep in mind that these deals are subject to change without notice. Also note the age requirements, as they vary by deal.
