SimplyGo EZ-Link offers 10% unlimited discount on MRT and bus journeys until September 30
Getting in and out of gantries and MRT buses are usually common gestures that we don’t think much about.
But with inflation being such a hot topic and concern, many of us could sweat the dollars and cents we spend every day now, including our transportation fares.
Every penny counts when it comes to saving money. Besides downgrading your caifan options, there is another easier trick: upgrading your existing EZ-Link card to a SimplyGo EZ-Link map.
Unlike the normal EZ-Link card, the SimplyGo EZ-Link The card offers you, among other things, cashback and more convenient ways to manage your account.
Here’s how to get the most out of your future travels.
Get cashback when you ride the bus and MRT
Living in Singapore, many of us who take public transport are familiar with the EZ-Link card, our trusty travel companion.
We often type the card on the reader without thinking, at most checking if the stored value is sufficient for our next trips.
Back then, reloading our EZ-Link cards meant queuing at ATMs.
But since 2021, the EZ-Link mobile app has allowed us to top up our cards from virtually anywhere, even on the go.
If reloading and using our cards means spending money, that’s not quite the case when you switch to the SimplyGo EZ-Link map.
The SimplyGo EZ-Link card rewards you with 10% unlimited cashback every time you press an MRT gate or bus card reader from here to Sep 30, 2022.
You could think of this as a sort of discount, since you’re essentially spending 10% less on your fare.
