Happy Birthday Prince Charles! Don’t forget your senior’s discounts


SeniorCap

Dear Prince Charles,

Please allow me to take this opportunity to wish you a very happy 65th birthday. By all accounts you are showing no signs of slowing down, let alone stopping the work you do. So as you carry on with your good works, now that you have attained retirement age some things will change.

As of today you are eligible for what we in Canada call the Old Age Pension. Given you’re not short of a bob or two you have kindly donated this monthly stipend to a seniors’ charity. But there’s more to it than just the pension. Next time you board one of London’s iconic double-decked buses or take a trip on the Tube, remember to make sure you get your senior’s price reduction.

I understand you might feel a bit awkward asking for your discount, so may I suggest you pick up a baseball cap like the one pictured above? The beauty is that not only will it guarantee you get the rebates you deserve, but it also covers bald spots.

I’m not familiar with grocery stores in Britain, but in Canada on Tuesdays seniors are entitled to free delivery. Next time you and Camilla are in Tesco picking up some things for the palace, try to do it on a Tuesday so you can avail yourself of the savings.

I’m sure you are aware that you are now entitled to a discount at the movies, so with several great looking films coming out for the Christmas season – including one with Dame Judi Dench – keep in mind you can see these films at a reduced price, but you may have to attend matinees.

I understand you might feel a bit awkward asking for your discount, so may I suggest you pick up a baseball cap like the one pictured above? The beauty is that not only will it guarantee you get the rebates you deserve, but it also covers bald spots.

Cheers!
