UOB is updating its list of qualifying and eligible transactions for UNI$ earning from 1st February 2021, adding new spend exclusions including hospitals, automobile parking lots and garages, meaning you’ll have to switch to alternative cards to continue earning miles for spend in these categories from early next year.
UOB cards already exclude categories like education and insurance payments from miles earning, so these additional categories are unfortunate to see.
