Being a student or senior citizen does have its perks. From the most to not so common discounts, these are the times we enjoy our obligated discounts the most. Know a student or senior citizen? Here are the benefits and discounts they are entitled to and maybe what you can avail from as well:
Jeep and Bus Fares
Commute to school every day? Always remember that students are entitled to a student discount in every jeep ride you take going to and from school.
Students only pay Php7 instead of Php8 for the first 4 kilometers. Also, for bus rides, specifically the underrated premium point-to-point (P2P) bus, students get half the price discount of the total fare. Now THAT’S so sulit!
Get 20% off your uber rides by uploading a photo of your school ID in the uber app. That’s Php20 savings if your fare is Php100!
