The Bottom Line

UOB Visa Signature Credit Card
Above Average But Not Great

10 UNI$ / S$5 on petrol, contactless transactions and overseas spends (including online). 1 UNI$ / S$5 on all other spends.

Monthly Spend S$1K S$2K S$4K S$6.5K S$10K
Net Reward Yield 2.1% 2.5% 2.5% 2.0% 1.6%
Est. Monthly Reward (S$) 20 45 95 125 160
All-Singapore Rewards Rank* 20 9 5 7 16
Within Bank Rank* 5 5 3 4 5
* Based on est. net reward yield for more than 70 credit cards in Singapore, for each monthly spending level. Read about how we calculate the net reward yield here & here.

The UOB Visa Signature gives effective rewards of 5.60% on petrol, all contactless transactions and on foreign spending (including online), capped at 4,000 UNI$ per month or about S$112.

All other spending earns 0.56% with no monthly caps.

Overall, we estimate you can earn a reward yield of 1.6-2.5% on all your spending with this card in a month.

Those are above average reward yields but not good enough to be the best for any level or category of spending.

Additional gifts like complimentary travel insurance and some vouchers are fine but not good enough to put the UOB Visa Signature over the top.
