Why is my SmartBenefits promise amount limited?
- Your SmartBenefits promise for this order may not exceed the total product cost plus shipping cost.
- The total SmartBenefits promises in all of your active recurring orders may not exceed the amount you have allocated to CommuterDirect in the WMATA SmartBenefits system. If you have recently updated your SmartBenefits allocation in the WMATA SmartBenefits system, the change may take up to one hour to be reflected in the CommuterDirect system.
