More than 27,000 beep cards get another year of use

The new expiry date will be the last day of the same month as the original expiry date month but with one year added (for example, the new expiry date for a card expiring at the end of December 2019 will be the 31st of December 2020).

AF Payments, Inc., the operator of the beep tap-and-go payment system, shared that as of February 12, 27,000 cards have been extended through the beep™ expiry date extension program. 

This is in line with the company’s 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 ten pesos and will run until December 2020. Cards can be extended sixty (60) calendar days prior and 60 calendar days after the expiry date of the card (for example, a customer can extend a card that expires at the end of December any time between 01 November 2019 and 29 February 2020). 

The new expiry date will be the last day of the same month as the original expiry date month but with one year added (for example, the new expiry date for a card expiring at the end of  December 2019 will be the 31st of December 2020). 

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 (60 days prior and 60 days after the printed expiry date).

There is a Php10 transaction fee for the expiry date extension.   Concessionary beep cards (for Senior Citizens and PWDs) will be extended free of charge.
