Shopping discounts for seniors, carers

Seniors and carers across the state can stretch their Christmas dollar further by using their concession cards to access discounts at more than 7000 businesses across the state. 

The discounts are offered under the State Government's Business Discount Scheme, which gives holders of a Seniors Card, Seniors Business Discount Card or Carer Business Discount Card access to great savings on a wide range of products and services.

Seniors and carers can receive discounts at a range of cafes and restaurants, retailers including gift, electrical, jewellery and home furnishing stores, and services including mechanical, cleaning and home improvements.

Participating businesses can be found in the 2013-2014 Business Discount Directory, available from any library, government service centre, Centrelink office, Salvation Army Service Centre, or local members’ electorate offices.

Cardholders can also go online to locate business discount providers using the searchable database at or

The website is compatible with smartphones, so seniors and carers can find local business discount providers from wherever they are in Queensland.
