OVER A THOUSAND NEW WAYS FOR SENIORS TO SAVE

Wednesday, 16 November 2016

The NSW Government is aiming to deliver more value for older people by increasing the number and geographic spread of businesses offering discounts to Seniors Card members. 1300 new businesses have joined as part of a new business recruitment campaign.

State Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons MP said the NSW Government was committed to assisting older people with the cost of living and supporting them to stay active, healthy and socially connected.

“At the last election, we pledged to significantly increase the number of businesses offing the Seniors Card discount and rewards, and I’m very pleased to say that we are delivering on that commitment,” Ms Gibbons said.

The business recruitment campaign has seen businesses ranging from lawyers and accountants to clothing stores, restaurants, fitness centres and electricians join Seniors Card.

Members can get discounts of up to 50 per cent off selected goods and services just by presenting their Card.

“This is another example of how the NSW Government is making Seniors Card even bigger and better,” Ms Gibbons said.

“There are almost 1.5 million Seniors Card members in NSW and we know they prefer to shop with businesses that accept the Card, so it’s a great boost for business and for the community.”

The business recruitment campaign will run until mid December and all NSW businesses are encouraged to join.
