SmartTrip value expire?

We have $8 left on our SmartTrip cards (since we purchased one to get the 7-day pass--which was a great value). Will that balance expire? Ideas on what to do with them?

Unless the rules have changed, the money on the smart trip card never expires. Keep it until you come back. Are you sure you don't want to take a few more train rides? $8 isn't much on the DC metro. :) If you think you or someone in the family might come back, keep the card. it works on parking in the garages too.

We bought our cards in March 2013, and they still had money on them February 2014 for what it's worth.

They last forever; lend it to your friends when they visit Washington. That's what I do with our four London "Oyster Cards" (same sort of thing).
