10 ABOUT THE SA SENIORS CARD The Seniors Card was introduced by the South Australian Government in 1993 to acknowledge the contribution of seniors. The card encourages members to maintain an active lifestyle by entitling them to public transport concessions, discounts and special offers provided by hundreds of businesses across the state and information about a range of topics. The South Australian Seniors Card is also recognised interstate and in New Zealand, providing seniors with further opportunities to obtain discounts and benefits. This directory lists businesses that offer a discount to Seniors Card members. Businesses participate in the Seniors Card program to support seniors and are not reimbursed by the Government. WeekendPlus, a fortnightly digital magazine for South Australian seniors, also provides members with discounts and special offers, as well as news, information and competitions. WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
