    Does anyone know if there's an expiry date?

    •  

      Offer till 8th July.
      Unless you meant the metcard expires from when you validate depending on what you purchase.

      •  

        Actually I meant neither, but I wasn't being particularly clear! I wondered if they expired with no use (ie: could I buy my years supply of 2 hourlys.)

        •  

          from my experience you can, but i think because of the changeover in train operator and/or the introduction of 'Myki', the whole ticketing system may change..

  •  

    Thanks mate. Good deal!!

  •  

    Metcards will be replaced by mykey cards in the future, so I wouldn't stock up on too many!

    •  

      I'm sure you can get full refund of any unused tickets when the time comes.

      •  

        Myki and Metcards will most likely run simultaneously when Myki is launched. From that date though Metcards will not be sold so it will eventually be phased out.

  •  

    I bought a few hundred worth before the price rise and no problems yet. As far as I can tell, there's no expiry on unused tickets.

      the mentality to buy heaps of stuff before the price rise is what trigger inflation. more demand causes the price to rise.

      •  

        True for certain items, but not in the case of metcards. The price was going to increase regardless… :)

  •  

    Good find. Might get 3 months worth of ticket.

  •  

    never ever saw discount from metlink.

    Myki officially kicks in on 1st Dec 2009.
    However, i see no harm in purchasing these as i suspect that you could exchange them for the new Myki cards.

    FYI, If you have a Vline Ticket, you get unlimited free travel across Zone 1 & 2. I know people that buy a weekly ticket from Lara to North Melbourne and just use to get around cheaper…Tricks of the trade!

    I think they are trying to introduce the online system so people may get use to online purchase. Then they reduce staffs who works in train station counter. Economic downturn.
