Hi, has anyone tried to use Ez-reload from Youtrip?

I dislike the frequent $0.10 deduction and it’s hard to track the balance on youtrip since it’s not instantaneous though I could track my expenses using SimplyGo.

Hello! I use YouTrip for my transport every day!

You're right that SimplyGo doesn't work in the best ways where the transactions all appear in one lump sum either on your debit/credit card statement. However I doubt it's a YouTrip app interface problem, it's just the way SimplyGo charges, as I experienced the same for my other cards.

That said, my advice is to download "TL SimplyGo" from your app store, and add your YouTrip card to it - you immediately see all the transaction records from every ride, and will be notified on new ones too :)

Hope this helps!

I am using ez-reload using standard chartered unlimited credit card. My monthly statement only shows the number of times the card is reloaded with the preset amount. In my case, it is 6 times of $20. You can consider using this card instead :)

I would agree with your point. It takes X number of days for amount to be charged on card. Stopped using YouTrip as an "ez link" due to that reason and used the Wirex card instead as I get to see the amount that's being charged the very next day. Don't need to worry about having in sufficient funds in the account.

Best of all, I get satoshis for every transaction which I can in turn exchange it to SGD and use it for my everyday spending. In simplier terms, it's like getting cashback for every ride!

Hi, there isn't any monthly fee to maintain the card if you are based here in Singapore. More information about the fees and limits can be found here: https://wirexapp.com/en/fees-and-limits

Thank You! This is so helpful 👍

In this case, you may wish to consider alternatives to prevent the frequent authentication charges to your card.

Personally I use a credit card or an ezlink card whenever I take public transport.

Here is everything about me and what I do best.
