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 and discounts and special offers

provided by hundreds of businesses across the state.

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.
