If you have Apple Pay configured with MasterCard, you can expect free rides beginning today and running each Monday through December 14 in London.
The offer is good on Monday, November 23, November 30, December 7 and December 14. “Simply touch in and out using MasterCard with Apple Pay” for the free ride, MasterCard said on its website. Riders simply need to bring up Apple Pay by double tapping the home button, select MasterCard and hold near the transit reader until it flashes a green light.
The offer applies to London Buses, London Underground, London Trams, Docklands Light Railway, the London Overground, TfL Rail, Emirates Air Line and “most National Rail services in London,” MasterCard explained, noting that it excludes Thames Clipper River Bus services. Each rider can spend up to a maximum of £27.90, which will be refunded within 28 working days, MasterCard explained.
It’s a pretty solid offer for folks who have a MasterCard and who live in or travel to London frequently. Hit the source for the full terms and conditions.
