UOB Visa Infinite Metal Card

by Kshitiz V Sharma on

Update: UOB increased the reward rate for overseas spending on this card from 2 mpd to 2.4 mpd effective 1st Jun 2023. We estimate this has minimal impact on the overall reward yield for the Infinite Metal, increasing the yield by about 0.05% across spending levels. This change (reflected below) does not have a meaningful impact on the ranking of the card in Singapore or among the cards offered by UOB. The Infinite Metal now also offers unlimited lounge access (vs. 4 visits a year earlier), which is a more meaningful change. Our preferred cards in Singapore remain unchanged.


The Bottom Line

The UOB Visa Infinite Metal Card gives effective rewards of 3.4% on all foreign spending and 1.96% on all local spending with no monthly caps.

Overall, we estimate you can earn a reward yield of 2.0 – 2.1% on all your spending with this card in a month.

The Metal Card also bundles a number of services like limited assistance with minor home repairs, car and travel. You also get access to the Visa Concierge, UOB Medical Concierge and unlimited Dragon Pass lounge visits with this card.

The Visa Infinite Metal has a non-waivable annual fee of S$648 and requires a minimum annual income of S$120,000.

While this a pretty good card, it is hampered by the high annual fee and a lower than best-in-class reward rate.
