UOB has extended its sign-up bonus for the KrisFlyer UOB credit card, previously ending on 31st August 2020 but now extended until 30th September 2020. With this offer you’ll earn a guaranteed 3,000 miles bonus on your first spend with the card, then an extra 7,000 miles if you’re among the first new-to-UOB cardholders to meet a S$1,500 spend within 30 days.
That second element is one of UOB’s typical ‘gambling’ offers, however if you do manage to secure both elements of the deal it’s good for 10,000 miles total bonus miles for a very low spend level.
The number of eligible applicants for the bonus has also been ‘refreshed’ today, giving you the best opportunity for success if you act quickly.
Here’s how the deal is structured.
Sign-up bonus (for all)
Whether you’re an existing UOB credit card holder or not, you’ll get a 3,000 miles welcome bonus provided you spend at least $5.00 on the card within 30 calendar days of your account opening date (yes, just $5).
These miles will be credited directly into your Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer account, as this card is directly linked to your KrisFlyer membership.
Unlike many UOB promotions, this element is not capped. Everyone is eligible, so if you play by the (fairly simple) rules, the bonus miles will be credited.
Do note however that if you have previously held the KrisFlyer UOB credit card and cancelled it, you won’t be eligible for this welcome bonus.
Additional sign-up bonus (for new members)
In addition to the sign-up bonus for all customers applying for this card outlined above, if you’re a new UOB credit card customer (or cancelled your last UOB credit card at least six months ago) you are eligible for an additional 7,000 miles when you spend a minimum of $1,500 within the first 30 days of the card account opening date.
As is typical with UOB promotions, to be eligible for this additional welcome bonus you must be among the first 200 new-to-UOB cardmembers who successfully apply online from 1st September to 30th September 2020 and meet the spend criteria.
If you’re familiar with our advice on these UOB ‘promotions’ – don’t count on this part. You may or may not qualify for this 7,000-miles conditional element, however a ‘fresh’ new allowance of 200 applicants became eligible this morning, so if you act fast you’re in with a decent chance.
If you do qualify, these 7,000 KrisFlyer miles will be credited directly into your KrisFlyer account by 31st December 2020, provided your card account remains in good standing and has not been cancelled.
