Giant Food Senior Discount Policy Explained (+ More Ways to Save)

Here’s the Giant Food senior discount policy in plain language. Some Giant Food stores offer a 5% discount for seniors on Tuesdays — but only at select Giant Food of Maryland locations. For more on Giant Food’s senior discount policy and other ways to save, see below.

Giant Food Senior Discount Policy

Some Giant Food grocery stores offer a senior discount, as confirmed by several store managers and customer service representatives. Giant Food Stores (or Giant-Carlisle) and Giant Food of Maryland are owned by the same parent company — Ahold Delhaize — but operate separately. Several Giant Food of Maryland stores (including 75% of the stores we contacted) offer a 5% senior discount on Tuesdays. None of the Giant-Carlisle stores we called offer senior discounts. The best way to find out if your local Giant Food has a senior discount is to contact the store directly.

Other Ways to Save at Giant Food

Both Giant Food chains honor manufacturer coupons. Competitor’s coupons, with the exception of club stores like Costco, are accepted at Giant Food of Maryland locations. You can also sign up for free savings cards. Giant Food Stores uses the BONUSCARD; Giant Food of Maryland offers the Giant Card. These cards give you access to weekly specials and personalized coupons. You can sign up online or in person at Giant Food Stores and Giant Food of Maryland locations.

If you link your BONUSCARD or Giant Card to the SavingStar app, you may be able to save even more. SavingStar is a grocery rebate app (available from the App Store and Google Play). Simply download the app and log in with your store savings card. Every time you shop, you’ll be able to select rebates for items you’re buying. When you scan your savings card at checkout, the rebates will automatically be added to your SavingStar account. Once you’ve saved $20, you can withdraw your savings to your bank or PayPal account.

In Summary

Senior discounts are not available at all Giant Food locations. Some Giant Food of Maryland locations offer a 5% senior discount on Tuesdays.

    In February 2019 Giant management told me I had to sign up with my Giant card, so I filled out a form for them to submit. Apparently I was lied to, along with all the other senior citizens who frequent Giant in Falls Church. They owe us an apology and our discount!

      We are sorry to hear about your negative experience, Susan! As noted in our article, the senior discount policy varies by store, which unfortunately means that some stores do not offer it at all. We do have a section devoted to senior discounts which you may find useful in identifying other stores with discounts in your area.
