New EZ Link 'Activate'

Have you heard of the EZ-Link ‘Activate!’ programme? I've never heard of it before even though I travel everywhere by bus and MRT. I've been using my ez-link card practically everyday and I only just found out about this great programme.
If you’re registered with ‘Activate!’ 
There are 3 key functions of this programme that you can enjoy:
[It’s a one-time, simple, registration which is absolutely free by the way!] 

- EZ-Manage
- EZ-Protect 
- EZ-Deals.
Registered ‘Activate!’ ez-link card holders can check the transaction history of their cards for up to three months, block and recover funds should they lose their cards, and enjoy additional protection against unauthorised usage before the lost card is blocked! 
EZ-Manage
Have you ever lost your ez-link card right after topping up the value? I’m sure it has happened to some of you! If you're like me and you top up your ez-link card with 50 or 100 bucks at one go (because I can't be bothered to keep topping up small amounts!)... then you lose your card, it's all gone! Sucks!!!! 

By registering with ‘Activate!’, card holders will be protected by EZ-Manage if they lose or misplace their ez-link cards, meaning they can block further usage by reporting card loss and enjoy the refund of the remaining stored value in the lost card.

Also with EZ-Manage, now I’m able to monitor my transit and retail transaction history up to three months*, either at the ‘Activate!’ website or via the EZ-Link mobile app!
EZ-Protect

Should there be unauthorised usage of funds between the time the customer calls EZLink to block their card and before the card is successfully blocked (which can take up to 48 hours), EZ-Protect provides an additional safeguard of up to SGD 10, on top of being able to block your EZ-link card and fund recovery. This means that consumers can safely store more value on their cards instead of having to top-up their cards frequently. 

In partnership with ACE Insurance, EZ-Protect has a robust system which requires verification of personal details and reinforces security in case someone else picks up the card and tries to make a fraudulent claim.
This security gives me peace of mind knowing that my EZ-Link card can't be cashed in by someone else in the event that I lose it or it gets stolen. My EZ-Link card always has a lot of money stored in it because I use it so often for transport and also to pay for stuff at the supermarket whenever I don't have cash on me. Now I can store value in it without any worry.

This July & August, to reward registered ‘Activate!’ ez-link cardholders with EZ-Deals:

Most deals come with a price, but not with ‘Activate!’ In the months of July & August 2013, all registered ‘Activate!’ ez-link cardholders stand a chance to have their retail transactions on their registered ez-link cards…

WAIVED FOR THE MONTH! Wow! 

Terms and conditions will apply, of course. Details, and Terms & Conditions are found at http://www.ezlinkactivate.com.sg/ez-deals/promotions/
Because there’s really nothing to lose and all to gain!
You can also register via the EZ-Link app available at the iTunes App store for Apple mobile device owners. Google Play Store for Android devices.

* ‘Activate!’ only applies to adult ez-link cards issued by EZ-Link and does not apply to concession cards issued by the Land Transport Authority (LTA).
