May I know what is the reason of switching from EZ-Link to NETS FlashPay?
1. You extend the validity of your transport card
2. Nets FP can be used at more retail places

Ok. I see your point. It is good for those who want to extend card validity and they don't need to fork out $5 for the cost of the card.

But for those who wish to Auto Top-Up via credit card, it is better to use EZ-Reload because there is a convenience fee of $0.25 will be charged if use NETS FlashPay Auto Top-Up.

That's true. But then you can just use MasterCard to tap for transport. why need ezreload?

Haha, I have read some threads that there are people discussing about glitch on incorrect/double charged fare payment when using contactless bank card, plus the 1024 taps limit thingy.

I have summarized the transit payment options as below for those who wish to know the differences.

EZ-Link
-Tap using EZ-Link Card
-Required upfront top-up
-EZ-Reload by by Credit/Debit Card

NETS FlashPay
-Tap using NETS FlashPay Card
-Required upfront top-up
-Auto Top-Up (ATU) by Credit/Debit Card

SimplyGo (Formerly ABT)
-Tap using Contactless Credit/Debit Card with Mastercard, Visa (ABT Pilot) and NETS (ABT Pilot)
-Tap using mobile wallets such as Apple Pay, Fitbit Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay
-Not required upfront top-up, directly charged to your Credit/Debit Card.

With the ABT not being widely available for parking yet, all seem to have their shortfall, with no rewards for ez/flashpay topup.

Headache deciding which to embark on since iím waiting for my first car.

Actually, with the ezlink app, you can get ezlink reward points from use. If you use NFC on your phone to top up your ezlink via the app should be able to get cc miles/cashback too. App also allows linking to Plus! account so can also earn linkpoints.

Now even can't use new EZlink app to check your card transaction and balance using NFC, but must wait the record to the load into app by Ezlink?

Old Ezlink.app can. The new app is also so slow.

What's the advantage of Nets Flashpay over other cashless methods eg Google pay or using contactless card?

I am confused. Are you talking about NFP top up? I can manually top up NFP using Android FlashPay Apps 3 times a day per credit card per NFP card. Max top up using the Android App is 5 times per credit card per week. Although I am not quite sure how to define one 'week'..
Would like to know the fastest rate using same cc

Lets say start on 1st of month. Is this correct?

1: 3 topups
2: 2 topups
9: 3 topups (+8 from 1st?)
10: 2 topups (+8 from 2nd?)
17: 3 topups (+8 from 9th?)
18: 2 topups (+8 from 10th?)

Trazora is the above correct? Please correct me if im wrong
