AF PAYMENTS Inc., the operator of the beep™ tap-and-go payment system, said 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 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 (for example, a customer can extend a card that expires at the end of December any time between November 1, 2019 and February 29, 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 P10 transaction fee for the expiry date extension.

Concessionary beep cards (for Senior Citizens and PWDs) will be extended free of charge.

Extension terminals are available in the following locations:

LRT1: Baclaran, Edsa, Central, D. Jose, Monumento and Roosevelt stations

LRT2: Cubao, Legarda, Recto and Pureza stations

MRT: North Ave., Cubao, Shaw Blvd., Ayala and Taft Ave. stations
