In order to support the children in the prefecture and parenting families, in collaboration with AEON Retail Co., we are issuing a new WAON “Mie Kosodate WAON” which is an ionic money card from November 9, 2018.
0.1% of the amount used at the WAON franchise stores across the country will be donated to the “Mie Prefectural Children’s Fund” (Mie-ken Kodomo Bokin). Donations will be used for counter measures for declining birthrate, measures for poverty reduction for children, prevention of child abuse, and so on.
If you already have a WAON card, you can have two cards or you can also transfer the current point to the new card. By all means, please use the “Mie Kosodate WAON”.
As issuing fee of 300 yen (tax included) is required.
