Goodwill thrift stores are a haven for budget-minded older adults, with discounts and specials many days of the week. Most (but not all) Goodwill stores offer a senior discount on a particular day of the week. But the amount of the discount and day vary depending on the location. That’s because regional Goodwill organizations are nonprofits that run their stores (currently 3,300 of them in North America) and donation centers independently. Here’s all you need to know about Goodwill’s senior discount.

Goodwill Senior Discount

Goodwill Industries International doesn’t have an official policy on senior discounts for all stores. But you’re likely to find one at your local Goodwill (or one a little farther away). Check senior discount details at the Goodwill location near you in person, via its website, or by calling the store before you go.

When we did some digging, we found Goodwill locations around the U.S. offering senior discounts of between 10 percent and 30 percent off, depending on location. Senior discounts at Goodwill stores are typically for shoppers 55 or older, but some stores offer their senior discounts to people 60 or older. Most stores require age verification, at least officially, but they don’t always check. Be prepared to show age identification just in case.

Individual stores might have additional requirements in place to use their senior discount, such as discounts only applying to donated items, discounts not being accepted at Goodwill outlet stores, or mandatory rewards program membership. This is in addition to meeting the age requirement. A Goodwill employee can fill you in.
