    My Smart Octopus from Samsung Pay seems to not work for the new voucher? So weird, the previous ones it worked with no problem, when you tapped to collect it on the Octopus app, it opened the Samsung pay app on the octopus card and it got the money. However now, it prompts me to tap the octopus card?! I mean, the phone is the card, what can I tap?

    I guess go to a Circle K and tap there. Or install the Octopus App on a separate phone from the Samsung Pay.

    I missed out on the 23rd July deadline due to travel, any suggestions on how I can now claim the vouchers ?

    i got the SMS from gov and tried to collect at 7-11, but it didnt work and there was no automatic allocation either. i suspect the stroed value facility (octopus card number) might be different. how do i find out? government website seems confusing and octopus service number is an unhelpful menu without any real person

    Don't think so as the whole idea of the scheme is to support local shops and merchants. Octopus maybe, others I highly doubt.

    Not sure if this will work for you .. but try it? Better to call the scheme hotline .. not sure what the side effects of just filling up a form might be.
