The UOB Visa Signature Card gives you rewards on all purchases you make in Singapore, without a cap on how much you can accumulate in a given period. The card gives you UNI$ when you spend on your travels overseas. It also gives you UNI$ when you use contactless modes of payment and on online and petrol spends. You can also get SMART$ rebates when you shop at participating stores. These rewards are available all through the year. This card helps you save money on petrol expenses in Singapore. With added benefits like insurance coverage for accidents, and emergency medical aid, you can travel in peace.

Are you travelling overseas any time soon? If so, taking this card along with you abroad will help you get 10x UNI$ when you use it to pay for your expenses in foreign countries. It also gives you the same rate of rewards when you buy petrol at participating outlets in Singapore. Do you shop online a lot? Then use this card to pay for your online purchases and get 10x UNI$. The card also gives you 10x UNI$ when you use it to make contactless payments. On all your other spends in the country, get 1x UNI$. Truly rewarding.
This is yet another way in which this card rewards you. When you shop at participating merchants, you are eligible to get SMART$ rebates. These rebates are available all the year round and each SMART$ is the same as 1 Singapore dollar. You can accumulate the SMART$ you earn and use them to get discounts on future purchases. Do keep in mind that SMART$ rebates remain valid only for 6 months from when they were issued. So make sure that you use them before they expire.
Driving your own car can become expensive. Using the UOB Fuel Power facility, you can save on your petrol expenses. This programme gives you the best prices for petrol at 98 different outlets on the island. At Shell petrol stations, you will be able to save up to 20.8% on petrol when you use this card to pay.
Whenever you travel, especially if you’re going overseas, you might be worried about a number of things that can go wrong. The UOB Visa Signature Card helps ease your fears by giving you benefits such as coverage of a maximum of S$25,000 for emergency medical aid, repatriation, and evacuation. The card also gives you a coverage of half a million Singapore dollars as part of the Public Conveyance Personal Accident policy. Travelling just became that much less burdensome.
The UOB Island of Rewards gives you privileges and benefits across various categories. You can convert the UNI$ you earn and accumulate into cash rebates. You can also redeem them to get vouchers related to shopping, dining, and travel. You can make use of these vouchers to get offers and discounts at more than 100 merchants participating in this programme in Singapore. Apart from this, you can also convert your UNI$ into vouchers right away at more than 1,000 stores on the island.
