Benefits & Features of AAVS
Credit card benefits
With AAVS, you earn all your usual credit card benefits - from credit card bonus points to cash rebates, airline mileage and an interest-free repayment period.
For details of your credit card benefits, please contact your financial institution.
Four reload amounts: HK$150/HK$250/HK$500/HK$1,000
You can choose a reload amount—HK$150, HK$250, HK$500 or HK$1,000—that suits your needs.
After you have set up AAVS for your Octopus, whenever the remaining value is not sufficient, the AAVS reload will be triggered to top up your card to complete the transaction.
AAVS for multiple Octopus
You can link up AAVS to a maximum of five Octopus for yourself with your selected credit card issued by different financial institutions.
If you are a credit card holder of below participating financial institutions*, you can link AAVS to more than one (to a maximum of three) Octopus for yourself with this credit card.
You can also link a AAVS to an additional three Octopus for your family members or friends, providing they are at least 12 years old.
Hence, you can have a maximum of eight AAVS-linked accounts: five for yourself and three for your family members or friends.
*Participating financial institutions:
- BOC Credit Card
- CCB (Asia) Credit Card
- Dah Sing Bank
