Got an expired Beep card? Don’t discard them as you can extend their expiry. Here’s how.
Beep cards have a set expiration date regardless if they still have credits (load) and you use them daily. But you don’t have to get a new one once they expire, all you have to do is go to an MRT station and have it checked at the cashier. If it still has a balance, you’d be referred to a machine where you can extend the expiry date. It works like the loading machine: you place your card, wait a short while, and it will print you a receipt confirmation the transaction. The catch though is that it isn’t free—extension costs ₱10, valid for an additional year.
