Business discount schemes help Sunshine Coast seniors and carers save money

Sunshine Coast seniors and carers can benefit from savings on a wide range of products and services from a number of local businesses under the State Government’s Seniors and Carers Business Discount scheme.

Member for Maroochydore Fiona Simpson said that residents who hold a Seniors Card, Seniors Business Discount Card or Carer Business Discount Card can access discounts on everything from insurance, flowers, travel and accommodation, to clothing, home improvement services, restaurants and health services

Ms Simpson said that the new 2013-14 discount directory is now available from her electorate office, community service centres, government offices and our local libraries.

“It is great to see so many local businesses helping to cut the cost of living by offering discounts to some of the most deserving members of our communities,” Ms Simpson said.

“I encourage any seniors and carers who do not currently hold a Seniors or Carers Business Discount Card to go online to find out if they’re eligible and apply for a card.”

“Cardholders can also go online at www.qld.gov.au/seniorscard  or www.qld.gov.au/carercard to locate business discount providers or for a full list of directory pick-up points.”
