Earning points and rewards
17. How do I earn points?
Upon successfully linking your ez-link card(s) with your Perx account, you can start earning points by traveling with your linked ez-link card(s). EZ-Link requires one day to process all transit transactions from the previous day. Points will credit automatically to your account within 36 hours* after each trip. Once your transit transactions have been processed, the points you have earned will be reflected on your Perx app within 24 to 36 hours of your transaction. Points will only be earned for all transit transactions made on SMRT/SBS buses or train in Singapore using your linked ez-link card(s).
* It may take up to 36 hours for the points to appear on your account.
Only using your linked ez-link card(s) during transit will earn you points. Points can be accrued only when you spend your ez-link balance during transit.
Points are not accrued when:
- The ez-link card(s) are used for retail transactions.
- You top up the ez-link card(s).
18. Which transit transactions are eligible for earning the points?

Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide details of your transaction for Perx to investigate.
