To qualify for the free ride, you must demonstrate that you spent 50,000 yen on a JCB credit card during your visit to Japan. (At the current exchange rate, 50,000 yen is equivalent to about $412.) It would be pretty easy to meet that threshold after spending a few days in Japan.
The regular one-way fare on the airport limo bus is about 3000 yen (about $26).
You can get two free airport limo tickets per JCB card! To get your free tickets toNarita International Airport (NRT), bring your JCB credit card receipts totaling at least 50,000 yen of purchases in Japan (including tax) to JCB PLAZA in Tokyo.
The fine print:
Offer applies for all JCB brand card issuing companies.
JCB cards issued in Japan are not eligible.
Cash advances are excluded.
The offer runs through June 30, 2016.
Get 20 Percent Discount on Airport Limo From Narita (NRT) or Kansai (KIX)
JCB cardholders can also get a discount on the airport limousine busfromTokyo’s Narita airport (NRT)to downtown hotels.

Just show your JCB credit card when you purchase your bus tickets at the airport.
You can get four tickets at the discount price!

1% cash back points on first $1,000 spent yearly
2% cash back points on next $2,000 spent yearly
