Why was I charged with a full price using my NS Flex subscription card?

Hi, I am currently subscribing to NS Flex Dal Voordeel which is supposed to give me 40% on my trips during off-peak hours. However, from my account I noticed that the amount charged to my subscription account here: (Also look at the time, it’s considered off-peak hour:

Was the same as the price I had paid with a debit card, from the same place to the same destination, which did not allow for a discount (I had to pay the full price):

I noticed this happened a few times as well, when I traveled on off-peak hours with my NS card with that subscription, I was not charged with the discounted price. Could anyone enlighten me about this? How does the discounted fare work? Thanks.

NS Flex Dal Voordeel is valid in trains, not buses, trams and metro's.

NS Flex is valid in BTM (bus tram metro) but only gives discount for trains.

A bus ride from Zuidplein to Rietdijk costs € 1,57 but since you transferred from another bus or metro within 35 minutes, the € 1,08 starting fee is not applied.

What you see is perfectly normal, the amount is the same as when travelling with a debit card.
