Hi

I have two Snapper cards from the failed Auckland rollout.

One has $77.98 the other has $13.03.

Looking to get $91.
Would suit someone in Wellington as I've used the cards to purchase things from the dairy in Wellington so should work.

Balance from the Android snapper app:

               

Thanks

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Keen to purchase one of them for wellington use. Just out of interest, can you not transfer the balance to an AT hop card or is that now not avaliable?

Thanks

Just confirming the Auckland purple hop cards (with the snapper logo) works in Wellington. You can transfer to AT hop if you choose and then withdraw out 

You can't withdraw from the purple cards.

I think you will have more luck if you dont expect to get face value for the cards.

It's not possible to transfer the balance which seems criminal! It's also not possible to withdrawal the cash and only 2 stores (subway) accept it as payment in Auckland region...

Much as I want to purchase a card, it might be worth talking to Auckland transport. Have a read of this https://www.snapper.co.nz/newsroom/2013/11/20/snapper-continues-to-focus-on-the-customer-during-at-hop-transition/

(Nearly?) All the Snapper terminals were removed as soon as the rollout was considered complete around Feb/March this year.  I know on the off chance I tried to make a retail purchase (not a transfer) at a Fix store using my old SnHop card within a week of the transfer deadline, "we don't have the terminals anymore".

Nate may still have a terminal at his cafe though (although I doubt it) as he was quite the supporter of the system.

Personally, my card is kept for if I'm ever in Wellington, it's got <$20 so worse case I've lost a $20 note, personally I lost more with AT invalidating unused trips on 10-trip bus passes.

I'm interested in buying them for $91 but I'm aware that the Terms & Conditions state that you can't transfer them if they are registered with your personal information. Are they registered?

15. Card transfer Where you lawfully hold a Card, you may (except where specifically provided otherwise in these Terms) permanently give that Card to another person. In that case, we will treat the new holder of the Card as the lawful holder, and he or she will be bound by these Terms. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you are not permitted to give the Card to another person if that Card:

     

  1. is a Concession Card;
  2. is a Registered Card; or
  3. is a Personalised Card.

From the Snapper "My Account" website,

Removing a Snapper from your account
If you want to give your Snapper to a family member or friend to use, or if you have been managing a card for someone else and no longer need to do so, then you should remove the Snapper from your account first.  This is easy to do and means the new owner of the card can register their "new" Snapper and gain access to all the great features of a registered user.


It does seem at "odds" with point 2 above. I can't see any issues since their website says "new owner"and "great features of a registered user" (refer below)

I'm seeing if Snapper themselves can give me a refund but can be all yours Hammerer if you're interested.

To end this thread.

I bought the cards and have registered them myself. No problems.

mentalinc, thanks, Hammerer
