Most of these deals, discounts and freebies are available to senior citizens every day throughout the year (not just on Grandparents Day). However, Grandparents Day is a great day to take advantage of these deals! Check out these great deals and discounts for Grandparents Day:
Grandparents Day Movie Theater Discounts
Some movie theaters offer discounts to those who are 60 and older. At AMC Theatres patrons 60 and older can purchase a discount ticket.
