LETTER: Seniors card offers great benefits

NEW figures show a record number of Queensland seniors are taking advantage of the discounts available under the Seniors Business Discount Card, and I encourage Ipswich West seniors to get on board.

A recent surge in applications means more than 100,000 Queensland seniors are now benefiting from discounts, ranging from travel packages to restaurants and electrical goods.

Each month, across the state, we are now receiving around 150 new applications, which shows just how popular this card has become.

Any Ipswich West resident over the age of 60, irrespective of their job status, is eligible for a Seniors Business Discount Card, which means it's never been easier to nab a bargain.

To use the card, look for a Seniors Card sticker on a shop window or at point of sale, or simply ask the person behind the counter.

I understand cost of living pressures can be a major barrier for local seniors, and this scheme is helping older Queenslanders to be more active in our communities.

Businesses and seniors can register interest for the scheme via qld.gov.au/seniorscard or 13 74 68.
