by Apoorv Trivedi on
Deal of the Week

KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card

The KrisFlyer UOB Card is one of our favorite credit cards in Singapore because it offers the best overall rewards of any card in Singapore if you spend more than about S$4,000 a month on your cards.

It offers 3 miles per dollar spent on high spend categories like Dining & Food Delivery, Online Shopping, Transport and Travel with no caps. The only condition for earning high rewards is a minimum annual spend of S$800 with Singapore Airlines Group (incl. Scoot) and KrisShop.

First 2,000 new-to-UOB customers singing up for KrisFlyer UOB Card in September will receive a reward of up to 32,000 KrisFlyer miles after spending S$2,000 on the card in the first 60 days.

Based on our valuation of a KrisFlyer mile of 1.4ยข/mile, that is worth nearly S$450, making it one of the best credit card-sign up offers.

Deal of the Week
KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card
32,000 KrisFlyer Miles

Spend S$2,000 on your KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card within 60 days of card approval to receive up to 32,000 KrisFlyer Miles.

The KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card is one of our favorite credit cards in Singapore. It gives you 3 miles per dollar spent on Dining & Food Delivery, Online Shopping, Transport and Travel. The overall reward yield on the card ranges from 2.5-2.8%, which is the highest of any rewards card in Singapore.

It is one of the few cards that allow free transfer of miles to your KrisFlyer account, while most other banks charge $25-40 for each transfer. In fact, the card automatically transfer the miles to your Krisflyer account every month.

You do need to spend a minimum of S$800 annually with Singapore Airlines Group – that includes Singapore Airlines, Scoot and KrisShop, to get the best rewards using this card. If you do not meet this minimum, you only earn 1.2 miles or about 1.68% on all your spend.

It is also worth noting that the bonus rewards earned on the special categories (Dining, Travel etc.) are only received at the end of every year (of card membership). So you only receive 1.2 miles per $ spent initially and the remaining 1.8 miles per $ are received at the end of the year.

If you want to use two cards, KrisFlyer UOB works very well with the Citi Cash Back Card.
