Mastercard's bringing back its "Fare Free Mondays."

At the tail end of last year, Mastercard incentivized card owners to use Apple Pay by gifting them free travel as part of its "Fare Free Mondays" promotion. It must have proved popular, because the company has decided to run the campaign again, allowing Londoners with an Apple Watch or iPhone 6 (or newer) to ride the London Underground and buses for free over the next three Mondays.

To be eligible, you must have a Mastercard added to your Apple Pay Wallet on your iOS device. Then, all you need to do is touch in and out with your NFC-equipped iPhone or Apple Watch on February 29th, March 7th and March 14th to escape the maximum £28.10 charge.
