Mastercard & Android Pay – Free TfL Travel & Caffè Nero Coffee on 4 Mondays in October 2016

Mastercard & Android Pay – Free TfL Travel & Caffè Nero Coffee on 4 Mondays in October 2016

Similar to the Mastercard / Apple Pay promotion last year, Mastercard and Android Pay will provide free TfL travel (including bus, Tube and DLR etc) on four Mondays in October.

The only difference is that they are offering free coffee this time too!

Useful info from Engadget ( engadget.com/201…on/ ) copied below:

-------------------------------------------------

In a bid to boost mobile payments, Mastercard kicked-off a series of promotional events last year where it would pay for Londoners' travel if they used its cards to tap in and out of the Tube with Apple Pay. It must have been a success, because today the card giant confirmed that it will do the same for cardholders with Android devices, allowing you to travel on London's travel networks for free every Monday throughout October.

All you need to do is have a Mastercard loaded onto your Android Pay wallet and then use it to touch in and out, like you would an Oyster or contactless card. The offer is available on October 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th and covers travel up to £30.50 across bus, Tube, tram, DLR, Tfl Rail, London Overground routes and most National Rail services in London. It even covers Emirates Air Line cable car and the MBNA Thames Clippers River Bus service.

If that wasn't enough, Mastercard has also teamed up with Caffè Nero to offer a free coffee or hot drink on those dates. For both offers, you will need to pay for your travel and drinks initially, but Mastercard will refund the fare (which could take up to 28 days).

I wasn't sure whether the free coffee was applicable to London stores only, but the T&Cs state that it'll be valid in England, Wales and Scotland which is a nice bonus.

Ta OP.

so you don't have to be in London to avail free coffee, right? and don't need to pay by android as cafe Nero doesn't do contactless

Why just free travel in London... What about the rest of the country

​is there anywhere else other than London where you can pay for a pay as you go journey by tapping on the barriers as opposed to a ticket machine?

Thanks OP for the heads-up.
Please could someone confirm that Revolut prepaid master cards are eligible to avail this offer.

Extract from master card website"Simple setup
Once you have the Android Pay app you can load your Mastercard credit, debit, small business and reloadable prepaid cards from participating issuers and use them with Android Pay. "

I have an Android phone. I have a Revolut card.

No good for Tesco MasterCard

Disgusting this isn't available on Apple. Effectively racism.

I've never had one before. Always had visa cards.

You don't need one for this deal. Just link a supported MasterCard credit card to your android pay account.

Cold from me. My privacy is worth more than a cup of coffee.

I would never give google a credit card number and so a definite identity to associate with all the other personal information I can't stop them collecting.I don't want to tell google anything about what I buy with credit cards either.

So how does the coffee work then do I just pay with my Android Pay (already Mastercard linked) and tell them I was the promotional coffee?

they are going to try and get there finger in every pie i would imagine, this is what these companies are about now it seems, dominance , control i suppose, i totally understand you view though, there are concerns, serious ones, i think we underestimate our power as consumers and until we start coming together and exercising that power these companies will continue to gain more and more power. anyway i need to buy more stuff i don't need and cant afford and that i would like to spend on something else more fulfilling.

What's the cheapest NFC phone you can get?

Any chance of this eventually working on rooted phones???

If you've got an Apple or Android phone your privacy has already gone anyway? Plus if your using a chrome browser Google also know what your viewing unless you've gone incognito?

At the end of the day all Google can do it target adverts etc at you, they can't tip off the coffee police your drinking too many cappuccinos!

will take advantage of this. cable car sounds good. heat!

Cause it has.
Is racist against Apples.

Thought I could use this, but Android Pay tells me it cannot confirm it is Android compatible. My phone is running the stock software, but is rooted.

Saying that the only way I managed to get space on the phone to install Android Pay was by using Link2SD, so even if my phone was not rooted I would not be able to use it.

I assume you just order your coffee as normal and pay via contactless.
No need to tell Nero because it will be recorded by Mastercard that you have made a transaction with Caffe Nero for X amount.

Keep telling yourself that. I know it makes you feel better about giving up your own privacy if you can convince yourself everyone else has as well.

Get then Cafe Nero's! Even if you dont drink coffee throw it away...teach nasties for not paying UK tax, let them know what its like to be left out of pocket.

It's a shame Barclays customers can't use Android Pay as I'd have saved a few quid here

Have a look at this and decide for yourself if you want to use this technology.
