Win a S$4,400 luxury staycation with KrisFlyer UOB cards

Three lucky KrisFlyer UOB cardholders will win a S$4,400 staycation experience in 2021, including a free-flow Champagne Afternoon Tea, a Michelin Star dinner and a 90-minute massage

If you have the KrisFlyer UOB credit card or debit card, each eligible block of S$10 spend you make over the next three months will earn you an entry into a prize draw to win a 3 day, 2 night staycation for two worth an impressive S$4,400 in a suite at The Barracks Hotel, Sentosa.

There are three identical prizes in total, to be awarded for a stay in 2021.

The package includes not only accommodation in The Barracks Hotel Suite Room with Pool Access, but also afternoon tea with Prosecco at Pollen, dinner at renowned one Michelin Star CUT by Wolfgang Puck, a 90 minute full body massage at Auriga Spa of Capella Singapore, and more.

The offer

Simply spend at least S$10 in a single physical transaction on your KrisFlyer UOB credit card or KrisFlyer UOB debit card between 1st November 2020 and 31st January 2021 to gain an entry into the prize draw, with each S$10 of eligible transactions in a single transaction earning you another entry.

For online spend it’s even better, with each S$10 denomination earning you three entries into the draw.

For example if you make the following four transactions during the promotion period, here’s the number of entries you’ll earn into the prize draw:

Transaction Both Cards Small

In-store

Online
S$56.99 5 15
S$720.00 72 216
S$9.99 0 0
S$102.50 10 30
Total 87 261

There is no cap on the number of entries you can accrue during the promotion period.

If you’re holding both the KrisFlyer UOB credit card and KrisFlyer UOB debit card, the total amount of eligible transactions charged to each of your cards will be aggregated to determine the number of lucky draw chances awarded.

Eligible transactions which are processed outside Singapore and successfully charged to your card in a foreign currency will be converted into Singapore dollars based on UOB’s prevailing exchange rate, before the number of prize draw entries is assessed.

Eligible Transactions successfully charged on a supplementary KrisFlyer UOB credit card will accrue to the principal card, however transactions charged on the KrisFlyer UOB debit card of a joint account holder will not.

All KrisFlyer UOB cardholders are automatically entered into this promotion, with no need to register.

The prize must be reserved 14 days in advance of the intended date of stay and utilised by 31st December 2021.

Spend exclusions

In common with most similar promotions, there are a range of transactions which will not count towards the eligible spend for this promotion.

For the KrisFlyer UOB credit card, this encompasses all transactions excluded from KrisFlyer miles earning, which you can examine in sections 1.8 to 1.12 of the card terms and conditions. Note that transactions at SMART$ merchants such as Giant and Cold Storage in particular will not qualify.

For the KrisFlyer UOB debit card, the exclusions are listed in sections 1.4 to 1.6 of that card’s terms and conditions.

When are the winners announced?

The draw for this promotion will be conducted on 31st March 2021, with the three winners notified and advised about the redemption process via post by 30th May 2021.

The names of the winners will also be announced on UOB’s website by 30th May 2021.

Pro Tip: You must continue to be the holder of at least one of the eligible KrisFlyer UOB cards at the time of the draw and at the time of utilisation of your prize, otherwise UOB has the right to forfeit the prize without compensation.

If you’re thinking of cancelling, this may not be the promotion for you.

If you win the prize – don’t cancel the card. The gift is worth much more than the annual fee!

The KrisFlyer UOB credit card

Launched in April 2019, the KrisFlyer UOB credit card offers up to 3 miles per dollar on Singapore Airlines related spend and a wide range of everyday transactions, though for some earning you have to be very patient when it comes to receiving the bonus.

Our comprehensive review will help you understand all the quirks of the card (there are a few!). On the plus side it can suit those who don’t want the hassle of a multi-card strategy for miles earning, and benefits from automatic fee-free transfers to KrisFlyer.

All new cardholders will benefit from a year-round 3,000 miles sign-up bonus, with the bank also offering an additional 7,000 miles for the first 200 new-to-bank UOB credit card applicants per month to spend S$1,500 within 30 days of card approval (in November and December 2020).

Apply and spend towards the beginning of the month to be in with the best chance for that element, though it’s never guaranteed.

T&Cs

Full terms and conditions for this prize offer can be found on the UOB website here.

Summary

If you’re an existing KrisFlyer UOB credit or debit card holder, try to make your regular individual transactions in S$10 block sizes between now and the end of January 2021 to maximise the number of entries you’ll earn in this promotion.

It’s also worth making as many online transactions as you can under the same criteria, for triple entries into the draw!

There are only three staycations to be won, so admittedly your chances probably aren’t great, but the prizes themselves are fantastic given the room category and inclusions offered, for a truly unforgettable staycation in 2021.

If you don’t currently have a KrisFlyer UOB credit card, it’s worth checking the benefits since it’s fee free in year one, and does come with a few useful earning categories, provided you’re willing to be patient for some of the bonus miles to credit.
