The Octopus is subject to a stored value limit of 3,000 yuan and will be distributed in three phases, 2,000 yuan, 2,000 yuan and 1,000 yuan respectively. For the third installment, RMB 4,000 must be spent at eligible merchants within a maximum of seven months after approval.
The source said that Octopus will review whether the user's consumption is a qualified merchant. If someone makes a mistake in paying utility bills, it will not be calculated, so it needs to "make up water" to meet the standard; users who do not meet the standard will not receive the third installment. , The authorities will prompt the card owner to spend up to 4,000 yuan before receiving the last 1,000 yuan.
The source pointed out that electronic consumer coupons are suitable for many merchants and it is believed that it is not difficult to meet the standards.
The government initially did not accept the use of consumer vouchers to ride transportation, but eventually changed its plan.
The source explained that many people reported that the restrictions should be relaxed, and considering that the transportation cost is a relatively large expense for some citizens, it can be used to travel by car.
Regarding whether anyone would commit an illegal operation, the source said that it would conduct random checks on merchants that had less transactions, and stop accepting consumer vouchers if they found violations; if any violations were found, law enforcement agencies would follow up.
Return the card to receive the third installment
The use of Octopus third installment of 1,000 yuan is not restricted by merchants and time limits. In addition to paying utility bills, the source admitted that it can also be used to "cash out" with a returned Octopus card, but not many people think that it is necessary to do so.
As for whether they are worried that someone will "sell the card" to cash out, the source believes that the possibility is unlikely and there are risks.
The source explained that the last fee will not be reviewed. One of the considerations is administrative costs and the inability of the Octopus system to set a deadline.
As for the loss of your Octopus card, you can report the loss online. According to sources, according to the existing policy of Octopus, it will take three hours to take effect. During this period, the card is mainly responsible for the loss.
