For the next two months starting today, you can buy a NETS FlashPay card and a copy of The New Paper at a bundled price of just $12.
This offer is available at all Buzz Pod locations across Singapore.
What is the FlashPay card?
FlashPay is a contactless card that can be used for payments at all MRT, LRT and public buses and more than 85,000 payment points outside of the transport network.
The card comes with a non-refundable fee of $5 and an additional stored value of $7.
NETS started issuing FlashPay when the Government opened the transit system to accept alternative payment cards.
Today, there are about 1 million monthly active FlashPay users. FlashPay is used for everyday payments such as transit fares and small-value payments including coffee, quick bites and taxi fares.
Users also enjoy treats and 5 per cent rebates on all taxi rides.
Why The New Paper?
A NETS spokesman said: "The New Paper has a loyal and large readership that relies on the paper to deliver the news that matter to them.
"Its handy size means it is one of the most widely-read papers at coffee shops, hawker centres, foodcourts and on public transportation - all places that FlashPay is accepted, making our partnership a natural and ideal one."
TAP & WIN
That's not all.
You stand a chance to win a condominium unit when you tap and pay with FlashPay from Aug 7 to Dec 31, 2015.
Consumers who use their FlashPay card for payments outside of transit points qualify for the lucky draw. You can also get three times the chances to win if you use bank cards enabled with FlashPay.
No registration or minimum spending is required - participation is automatic with any valid FlashPay payment transaction.
This is NETS' biggest-ever campaign and it is to celebrate NETS FlashPay's fifth anniversary, NETS CEO Jeffrey Goh said: "This campaign is our way of thanking our FlashPay cardholders for their support."
Twenty participants will win $1,000 cash each and one lucky winner among them will win the grand prize of a condominium unit in Stratum, a new property development on Elias Road. Consumers can use any FlashPay cards to participate in the draw.
Mr Goh added: "Embracing contactless payments is the only way to go for a first-world country - it's fast, hygienic and efficient.
We've built the infrastructure and we hope to encourage consumers to embrace e-payments through this campaign."
