The UOB EVOL Credit Card gives 8% cashback on online and mobile contactless payments, capped at S$20/mth each. All other spending earns 0.3% cashback, also with a cap of S$20.

The 8% cashback rate on the very broad categories of online and mobile contactless transactions is one of the highest of any card in Singapore.

You do need to charge a minimum of S$600 to your card each month to earn this enhanced cashback rate. Below this limits, all transactions earn only 0.3% cashback.

Although the cap of S$20 on each category is relatively low, it is still good enough to place the EVOL in top 3 entry level cards in Singapore.

Overall, we estimate you can earn a reward yield of 3.0-4.3% on all your spending up to S$2,000 with this card in a month.

The low category caps mean this card is not very good beyond this level of spending. Its ranking falls to the bottom half of all cards in Singapore for high-spenders.
