Smart’s Prepaid 1-Year Load Expiration

It was reported some two months ago that the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) ordered the telcos to extend load expiration to 1 year regardless of amount. Last month, DICT agreed to delay implementation of this order for loads below P300.

Today, I tried reloading P300 to my SmartBro prepaid account to test if Smart indeed complied with DICT’s order. Lo and behold! To my gladness, my remaining balance is set to expire in 1 year: February 5, 2019. Though, the free ALLNET TXTS that goes with every reload is still set to expire in 75 days. No worries for me in that case, at least I don’t have to rush anymore to consume my load credits before they expire.

As for Globe, I have yet to try. If you have experienced reloading with Globe, please share them in the comments below.
