50 and above – Here are 24 discounts for you in Singapore

Once you’ve reached a certain age, you may begin to wonder when you’ll be eligible for senior discounts. You may not like being called “Aunty” or “Uncle” by someone who appears to look your age, but ageing does come with some perks as after all.

And, we are not talking about the coveted rights to the priority seat on public transport.

 We have compiled a list of all the discounts and perks that are available once you turn 50 – from supermarkets, restaurants to tourist attractions. 

Senior discounts become available for you once you turn 50, although most (i.e. better ones) are only available once you reach 60, so this is a reason to look forward to the next milestone in your golden years. 

Pharmacies 

Watsons and Guardian both offer up to 10% discounts once you turn 50. Notably, these are some of the only pharmacies that offer discounts at this age. 

Guardian offers a 5% discount on products, but only if you have its Guardian Golden Senior Card

Watsons is generally more generous, offering a 5% discount storewide, and 10% off when purchasing prescription medicines. 

Unity offers discounts once you turn 60, with 2% discount on Wednesdays. Once you turn 70 this is increased to 3% on Mondays as well.

Supermarkets

Supermarkets are largely similar when it comes to senior discounts. The maximum discount offered by the main supermarket chains in Singapore is 3%, although the date and items this amount applies depends on the supermarket. 

Sheng Siong and Cold Storage both offer 3% off on Wednesdays for seniors above the age of 60, although Sheng Siong only allows discounts for purchases of up to $200, while Cold Storage has no limit. 

NTUC Fairprice also has a $200 purchase limit, and also follows the same discounts as Unity (due to Unity being owned by NTUC). 

Giant has a 3% discount on Tuesdays for those 60 and above. 

Prime Supermarket also offers a 3% discount on Mondays and Fridays for seniors above 60.

Restaurants 

Many restaurants offer a senior discount. However, this is not fixed as restaurants are generally independent, privately-owned businesses and hence do not have to stick to a more constant discount rate. 

For instance, the buffet restaurant [email protected], located at the Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel, offers a $33 buffet lunch to seniors above the age of 60. The usual price is $42 for adults. Buffet City is another buffet restaurant that offers buffet lunches starting at $22.80 on weekdays for those 55 and above. 

Korean BBQ restaurant Seoul Garden offers 20% off for a buffet lunch from Mondays to Fridays for those above 60. 

Pizza Hut also has a 50% off lunch deal from 1:30 PM to 5 PM on weekdays for those 55 and above.
