Surprising Perks for Senior Citizens in Bacolod

Getting old isn't really so bad. One of the best perks when you reach dual citizenship (a.k.a. Senior Citizen) is that you get special discounts and privileges. 



Some of the law-mandated and government-initiated privileges include: 

  • Discounts and VAT Exemptions on medicines, medical tests and procedures, medical supplies and equipment, food and basic commodities, hotels and transportation fees, recreation centers and in places of leisure such as cinemas, parks, museums, etc. 
  • Automatic PHILHEALTH coverage under the Senior Citizen Category
  • Exemption from paying terminal fees at all ports owned and operated by the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) nationwide. 
  • Priority lanes in government offices and commercial establishments
  • Free dental and medical services in government facilities
But that's not all --- In Bacolod City, senior citizens get extra privileges aside from the ones mandated by law. Some of which are: 

1. Lopues Centre - 10% discount on selected dry goods. We were able to try in at Lopues East only and I have yet to verify if it is the same in other branches. 

2. Ayala Capitol Central Cinema - Free movie every Monday during its first screening. Make sure to just present your Senior Citizen ID issued by the City of Bacolod. Other SC cards issued from another city are not honored. Only 20% discount will apply.

4. Waxcuvado Salon, Ayala Capitol  - 20% discount on all services
