Member for Currumbin, Jann Stuckey MP said seniors and carers in Currumbin are enjoying a lower cost of living after the Seniors and Carers Business Discount scheme was introduced by the Newman Government.

“Currumbin residents who hold a Seniors Card, Seniors Business Discount Card or Carer Business Discount Card will have access to great savings on a wide range of products and services from a number of local business outlets,” Ms Stuckey said.

“The 2013-14 discount directory offers seniors and carers discounts on everything from insurance, flowers, travel and accommodation, to clothing, home improvement services, restaurants and health services.”

Communities Minister Tracy Davis said more than 7,000 businesses had signed up to the Newman Government’s 2013-2014 business discount schemes across the state.

“It is wonderful to see so many businesses demonstrating their community spirit by offering discounts to some of the most deserving members of our communities,” Ms Davis said.

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

“Directories are also available for collection from my Palm Beach electorate office and the Pines Shopping Centre library.  Alternatively, you can phone my office on (07) 5598 1387 to have a copy sent to you.

“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.”
