Londoners: MasterCard "Fare Free Mondays" for Apple Pay are back

For a time last November and December, MasterCard ran a "Fare Free Mondays" promotion in London, England. It's now back by popular demand, and if you use Apple Pay to touch in and out of the Transport for London network on Mondays between February 29 and March 14, you'll be reimbursed for your transit expenses paid for with a UK MasterCard.

It's a pretty nice deal -- MasterCard will reimburse up to £28.10 of transit expenses per person on each Monday. The promotion is good on London Buses, London Underground, London Trams, Docklands Light Railway, London Overground, TfL Rail, Emirates Air Line, and most National Rail services in London where a yellow card reader is present. Never used Apple Pay on Transport for London? Here's how!

Londoners will be reimbursed for travel during these times:

  • Monday, Feb. 29 at 4:30 AM until Tuesday, Mar 1 at 1:00 AM
  • Monday, Mar 7 at 4:30 AM until Tuesday, Mar 8 at 1:00 AM
  • Monday, Mar 14 at 4:30 AM until Tuesday, Mar 15 at 1:00 AM
