But that 100 ntd... is a non-refundable thing right? :s11:
Means pay upfront 100 btw for the card?
Then top up whatever we need?

100ntd is only S$4.50, buy the easy card, then top up 200/300ntd. Same as our esylink, you save queuing time, coin changing, wonder which stop you want to alight. Just tap and go, you can change plan anytime.
