27,000 beep cards get another year

AF Payments Inc., the operator of the beep tap-and-go payment system, said some 27,000 cards as of Feb. 12, were extended through the beep expiry date extension program.  

The company said this is in line with its thrust to maximize the utility of beep cards and minimize the environmental impact of disposing expired cards.

The beep expiry date extension program is valid for standard beep cards with a minimum balance of P10 and will run until December 2020. 

Cards can be extended 60 calendar days prior and 60 calendar days after the expiry date of the card. The new expiry date will be the last day of the same month as the original expiry date month but with one year added.

It said that beep cards with less than P10 load balance (excluding concessionary cards) and blacklisted cards are not eligible for the one-year extension, alongside cards with expiry dates that do not fall within the period specified for the extension.

There is a P10 transaction fee for the expiry date extension.
