Only primary cardholders can participate, but eligible transactions made by your supplementary cardholders will count towards the spend for the promotion.

Registration is required

The bonus earn rate is not automatic – you must successfully register to participate in this promotion. That requires principal cardholders to send an SMS to 77862 using their mobile number registered with UOB, in the following format:



  PMC [space] Last 4 alphanumeric digits of your NRIC or Passport Number

Example: If your NRIC is S1234567A, you will need to send “PMC 567A” to 77862

All cardholders are eligible for this promotion, with no upper participant cap.

You must register within the promotion period (i.e. before 31st October 2022), but not necessarily before your first eligible transaction.

4.4 mpd on selected overseas spend

The first bonus category during this promotion is for overseas spend, which UOB defines as transactions processed by the merchant as an in-store foreign currency transaction via a payment gateway overseas.

Do note that payments made online in foreign currency via a payment gateway overseas are not eligible as part of this promotion.

Subject to the minimum overall spend of S$1,000 across all bonus categories during the promotion period, the equivalent earn rate for these overseas transactions is 4.4 miles per dollar, and comprises:

  • the usual rate of UNI$6 per S$5 spend locally (equivalent to 2.4 miles per S$1); and
  • a bonus rate of UNI$5 per S$5 spend (equivalent to 2 miles per S$1).

3.4 mpd for online travel bookings (SGD)

The second bonus category during this promotion is for online travel spend, which UOB defines as transactions processed by the merchant as online transactions, and posted on UOB’s system with any of the following Merchant Category Codes (MCCs):

The UOB PRVI Miles cards

If you’re not currently holding a UOB PRVI Miles card, or you just need a refresher on how they work, be sure to check out our comprehensive review.

In particular, remember you’ll only earn UNI$ (which convert at a 1:2 ratio into KrisFlyer miles or Asia Miles) for S$5+ spending blocks. Spend S$4.99 and you will walk away empty-handed!

Summary

There’s a generous 8,000 bonus miles cap for this deal, including for overseas in-store spend and for a variety of travel transactions, but remember it’s only the UOB PRVI Miles Mastercard between now and the end of October 2022.

You’ll also need to clock at least S$1,000 total spend in the bonus categories across the promotion period to be eligible for any additional miles.

At some stage during the promotion you’ll also need to register to participate. Sooner is better than later in our opinion, in case you forget. In fact there is no harm in registering your card, even if you don’t think you’ll participate.

Luckily the deal has no upper registration limit, and your supplementary cardholders can help you along with their own spend in eligible categories.
