It was a cracking post. Albeit, a bit filthy.

Hopefully that helps :joy:

Intrigued. Is it a stamp-based, sticker-based or swipe style loyalty card?


(Emma (still not the app)) #107

Yeah, that’s not appropriate

Rule of thumb. If I wouldn’t say it then it’s DEFINITELY not acceptable.


#110

As a non-Londoner I’m intrigued, why are people still using Oyster?


#111

It’s faster, pay as you go doesn’t have monthly or yearly capping, and you can’t load discounts onto payment cards.


#112

Faster how? The mechanics of tapping a card takes the same amount of time regardless of if it’s a debit or an Oyster?

The other points are valid, though. I didn’t know any of that was a thing.


#113

The first time I used contactless in London I panicked as the gate wouldn’t open and thought I’d get fined £100s for not tapping correctly and also thousands of angry Londoners behind me would crush me! Turns out it was just taking longer to do an online authentication.


#114

Interesting, I’ve always found it to be instant with my Monzo.


(Ben ) #115

It definitely does have like a 1/2 second delay vs Oyster.

If you’re using Oyster PAYG it’s the same price, so no financial reason to use it - but if you’re on a season ticket the prices are better.

For the longest time though, the reason I kept my oyster was because I didn’t want TFL transactions cluttering up my bank account.

(edit: spelling)


#116

We’re talking milliseconds, but my experience is that using an Oyster opens the gates pretty instantaneously. Using contactless has a few milliseconds of lag. This means with Oyster I can generally present the card and carry on walking; with contactless, I need to pause.

I’ve linked my Railcard to it, I now get a third discount on any rail travel.

I also use auto top-up which is linked to a cash back credit card, I never have to bother with manually topping up this way.


#119

Really glad I got this. Combined with the student card I get 15% off, it’s brilliant.
