Maybe I’m just not very observant and this has always been around, but I was at Raffles City a couple of days ago and just noticed this in the carpark
I never knew we could use credit cards to top up our Ezlink card on an ad-hoc basis. The sign says Visa but it says on the right panel that Mastercard works too.
I know that as per the T&C of most card issuers, EZ-Reload transactions do not earn points. However, I think these ad-hoc top ups code differently.
There was no top up fee to use this terminal, so if this does end up in me getting regular points (I used my DBS Altitude Visa so that’ll be 1.2 miles per S$1), this could be the start of something interesting. I definitely wouldn’t go so far as to call it a manufactured spend opportunity, but…
I’ll report back if I do earn points on this transaction. It most definitely isn’t an online one, though, so don’t think about getting 4 miles with the DBS WWC.
I am told that these pay points can be found at all Capitamalls carparks, for those of you who want to try it yourselves.
