You can find an EZ-Link vending machine right at the exit of Terminal 3 at Changi Airport.

This machine allows for contactless payment, which is great if you're in a hurry or prefer not to deal with a cashier. Here's what you need to do to buy a card:

  1. Select the card design you like (each purchase is for one card only).
  2. Choose preferred payment method (they only accept contactless payment). So, you'll need a credit or debit card that has a VISA or Mastercard logo and a wave-like symbol for contactless transactions.
  3. After that, tap your card on the machine's reader. Hold it there until you see a green light, which means your payment has gone through.
  4. After that, the machine will dispense your EZ-Link card. Take your card, and you're all set!

These vending machines are also available at bus interchanges, shopping centers, and MRT stations. However, for MRT stations, they're only at the Changi Airport MRT stations (for terminals 1 and 2) and at Little India MRT. To find a vending machine near you, check out this webpage.

One of the fun perks of these machines is that they dispense EZ-Link cards with various unique designs, like Spiderman, Pokemon, and more, which are different from the standard designs you might see elsewhere. They can be a cool addition to your collection!
