The UOB PRVI Miles card normally offers 1.4 mpd on local spending, 2.4 mpd on overseas spending and 6 mpd for spending on selected OTAs.
UOB has just launched a new promotion that could be potentially useful for those of you locking in travel plans by 31 March 2019. You can earn 10 mpd when you make hotel or airline bookings on Agoda, Expedia, UOB Travel and Kaligo with your UOB PRVI Miles card.
Here’s how the promotion works for the different OTAs. Note that not all airlines are included! Sadly, Singapore Airlines is nowhere to be seen, but hey, if you’ve always had a burning desire to try Cambodia Angkor Air…
|Book By||31 Mar 19||31 Mar 19||31 Mar 19|
|Stay/Travel By||30 Jun 19||31 Jul 19||Not stated|
|10 mpd cap for promo period||$1,500||$3,000||$3,000|
|Other things to note||Travel must originate from Singapore|

Kaligo 10 mpd offer also extended till 31 Dec 2019
UOB PRVI Miles has consistently offered 10 mpd for hotel bookings made through Kaligo. This has once again been extended till the end of the year.
Kaligo is a great OTA to use…if you’re sure the rate you see is competitive with those offered by other websites. My experience with Kaligo is that rooms tend to price at higher rates compared to elsewhere, but of course if you find an equivalent or lower rate on Kaligo, it’s a no brainer to book through them.
Get $50 when you sign up for a UOB PRVI Miles Visa card
As part of the ongoing SingSaver January deals, new and existing UOB cardholders who sign up for a UOB PRVI Miles Visa (note: only the Visa version of the card is available under this offer) will get $50 cash upon approval. This is valid for applications submitted by 31 January 2019.
Please read the instructions here before applying for any SingSaver cards!
If you’re a new-to-bank customer, you may also be eligible for a $100 cash credit if you’re within the first 200 cardholders to spend $1,000 within 30 days of approval. This promotion started back on 1 Jan 19 and runs till 23 Jan 19, and you want to take that into consideration when factoring in your odds.
So long as you’re aware of the T&C, this could be a fantastic opportunity for you to chalk up more UNI$. UOB partners with both KrisFlyer and Asia Miles, so you have options of where to transfer those points.
