Apart from this, for every S$1 you spend on booking specified flight tickets and any of the thousands of hotel rooms around the world, you can get 6 miles. If you spend at least S$50,000 a year on this card, you will get 20,000 miles for being a loyal customer.

It’s mandatory for you to activate the magnetic stripe before you go ahead and use the credit card overseas. This is because the stripe is in an inactive state in Singapore, and might be needed overseas at merchants who don’t have an EMV Chip-enabled sales terminal. This credit card can be activated by using one of the methods listed below:
UOB credit cards provide you the option of paying for your big ticket purchases such as luxury shopping items or insurance premiums in the form of flexible monthly payments. This instalment payment plan (IPP) is called UOB SmartPay, and it allows cardmembers to divide their payments into tenures of 3, 6, or 12 months. This IPP is characterised by 0% interest, and a low processing fee charged only once. Besides, you can easily and swiftly apply for the facility through Personal Internet Banking, SMS, or by using an online form.
The following table illustrates the interest and processing fee charged against different tenures:
|Term||Processing fee||Effective interest rate|
|3 months||3%||18.18% p.a.|
|6 months||3%||10.43% p.a.|
|12 months||5%||9.5% p.a.|
Through the cash advance facility, you can withdraw money from your credit card through an ATM or via funds transfer to a bank account. You could also use phone banking and SMS banking to instruct the bank to move the amount from your card to a linked account.
The amount you can withdraw is whatever credit limit is remaining on your card, or up to 75% of your credit limit, whichever amount is lower. You cannot take out more than S$3,000 from a UOB ATM on a given day, and you cannot withdraw less than S$200 a day through SMS, ATM or Phone Banking. Interest on cash advance is payable from the date of transaction and there is no grace period.
It is important that you apply for this card only after making sure that you meet the eligibility criteria. Visit this page to find out more.
You must inform the bank as soon as possible, if your credit card is stolen or lost. Besides, you must file a report with the police and submit the report to UOB, if it is deemed necessary. You can reach UOB in such a scenario by calling the hotline number either from Singapore or overseas.
However, UOB shouldn’t find you responsible in any manner for the loss or theft of the card. Your liability will be restricted to S$100, if you stick to these conditions.
