UOB is really trying to capture a slice of your ‘stay home’ and essential spend during the circuit breaker period, with COVID-19 confining us to our homes for most of the day and only certain retail stores permitted to open, not to mention a big shift to online spend and delivery services.
Already this month we’ve seen an offer for 3 mpd on groceries and selected online spend using its PRVI Miles Amex cards until the end of June 2020, and last week the bank added a slightly different offer for its PRVI Miles Visa and Mastercard customers for online spend in a range of categories until 31st July 2020.
This week it’s the KrisFlyer UOB card getting some attention, with a new “3 miles per S$1 on what matters” offer running until 31st July 2020.
Provided you spend at least S$4,000 on your KrisFlyer UOB credit card between 20th April 2020 and 31st July 2020 (on any transaction), you’ll be entitled to an enhanced earn rate of 3 miles per dollar on both in-store and online spend with selected retailers in the following categories:
- Groceries and Supermarkets
- Health & Beauty
- Electronics, Home Appliances and Furniture
The 3 miles per dollar rate comprises:
- the usual rate of 6 KrisFlyer miles per S$5 spend locally (equivalent to 1.2 miles per S$1); and
- a bonus rate of 9 KrisFlyer miles per S$5 spend (equivalent to 1.8 miles per S$1).
The maximum number of bonus KrisFlyer miles you can earn under this promotion is 3,600. Since you usually earn 1.2 miles per dollar with this card, that means the bonus 1.8 miles per dollar (3.0 – 1.2 = 1.8 bonus) is capped at 3,600, which is equivalent to S$2,000 spend in these categories (3,600 / 1.8 = 2,000).
