There are four redemption methods available:

Every promotion listed on Seniors Discounts will display one of these four redemption methods in the summary details of the promotion.
Voucher Code - Are mainly used on websites during the check out process. It will be a short code, which you will need to enter before completing the purchase to receive your discount.
* Some businesses, which don’t have an online checkout, may ask you to provide the voucher code by telephone or email before completing your purchase.
Click & Redeem - This method is used when businesses have already applied the discount on their website. You will be taken directly to the discount or promotion.
Printable Coupon - Used by physical stores or services such as restaurants, shops and tradesmen. You will need to print the coupon to obtain the discount.
Identification - Used in physical stores and services. All you need to do is show some form of identification which has your age on it. e.g. drivers licence.
