November 5 was JRE POINT CASHLESS rebate pay day, a grand total of ¥178. Big whup. After a month of using the CASHLESS rebate program, I can say that most of my Suica CASHLESS rebates are the convenience store instant transaction variety that do not use the JRE POINT system. I have also gotten more points out of the JRE POINT yellow logo 2% rebate campaign because I frequent Becks Coffee Shop and NewDays on the daily commute. Most of my cashless rebates are via my plastic Docomo dCard/Mastercard at the local COCOS Nakamura supermarket (the bento selection is real good, as is the fish).
Still, I’m glad to report that the system works as advertised. All the rebate points for October are in. My only wish is for more eligible stores to join the program while the deal lasts.
