SINGAPORE - The EZ-Link Imagine American Express® Prepaid Card has been named the Best Prepaid Card at the second Annual Smart Card Awards Asia.
The awards ceremony held at Marina Bay Sands recognises companies which have demonstrated the greatest ability in innovation with new products.
The Imagine Card was launched in October 2012. It is the first American Express-branded, contact-less prepaid card in the world, and the first American Express-branded product equipped with EZ-Link CEPAS functionality.
Cardholders can use it for public transit, taxis, Electronic Road Pricing (ERP), carparks and other retail purchases worldwide.
The EZ-Link Imagine American Express® Prepaid Card is also the first prepaid card in the market integrated with the EZ-Link Season Pass, which offers unlimited bus travel and up to four train journeys per day.
In addition, cardholders are able to suspend their card account immediately if the card is lost or stolen, and enjoy online fraud protection through the American Express SafeKey programme.
EZ-Link's M1 Prepaid MasterCard® previously won the Ministry of Transport's Minister's Innovation Award in November 2012.
