How to Spend Consumption Vouchers with your Octopus Card

Registration

The 2022 Consumption Voucher Scheme (“CVS”) will be disbursed in two phases:

Phase I

There is no re-registration required. The Government disbursed the first voucher valued at $4,000 to your Octopus Card registered under the 2021 Consumption Voucher Scheme (“2021 CVS”) on 7 April 2022. If the cumulative total "eligible spending" has reached $4,000 by the specified date, you can collect the second consumption voucher of $1,000 by tapping your Octopus Cards from the 16th of the following month.

Phase II

It’s easier to spend your consumption vouchers and earn great rewards if you have chosen to spend with Octopus Card throughout the CVS! Take It Easy!

You can just sit back and relax. There’s no need to register if you choose the same registered Octopus Card to collect the consumption vouchers in 2022 (Phase II) CVS. We have a wide merchant network with over 150,000 acceptance points across Hong Kong, so you can spend the vouchers for your everyday needs or whatever you want! New customers or existing users can also earn rewards up to a $200 cash rebate*! With your Octopus App on hand, you can redeem any desired merchant coupons while spending your vouchers too! Enrol for Easy Earn on your Octopus App and link your Octopus Card before you start earning eStamps or rewards automatically when you spend at desired merchants. We are collaborating with many merchants in preparation for your exclusive offers, including FWD, ZA bank, Citibank, KMB, etc. so you can spend vouchers and earn rewards with a single tap!

*Terms and conditions apply.

FAQ

  1. I used an Octopus Card to collect the consumption vouchers of the 2021 Consumption Voucher Scheme, and now I want to use a JoyYou card in the 2022 (Phase II) Consumption Voucher Scheme. What should I do?
  2. I used an Octopus Card to collect the consumption vouchers of the 2021 Consumption Voucher Scheme; can I use another Octopus Card for the 2022 (Phase II) Consumption Voucher Scheme?

  4. I am new to the Consumption Voucher Scheme. How can I register to collect $10,000 consumption vouchers (if applicable) with Octopus Cards?

  • If your last installment is not yet available for collection, there are two possibilities: your cumulative total "eligible spending" has not reached the designated spending requirement by the end of last month, or you have used it for some transactions that are not regarded as “eligible spending”. If you have used your Octopus Card for transactions not regarded as “eligible spending” and hence your card does not have sufficient remaining value, you can simply top-up the Octopus Card using cash and spend until you meet the designated spending requirement. If your cumulative total "eligible spending" has not reached the designated spending requirement before the above deadlines, the last voucher will not be disbursed.
  • The Stored Value Limit of the Octopus Card is $3,000. Please spend with your Octopus Card. You can collect your consumption vouchers in increments until the entire amount of consumption vouchers have been collected.
