From now till 9 February 2023, UOB is running a bonus miles offer for KrisFlyer UOB Credit Cardholders who purchase Singapore Airlines tickets.
Cardholders will earn 1,500 bonus miles per S$500 spent, which stacks with the regular 3 mpd for a total earn rate of up to 6 mpd (“up to” because you won’t earn 6 mpd unless you manage to spend in exact multiples of S$500). Registration is required, and unfortunately, the maximum number of bonus awards is capped at 1,000.
They can further stack this with a S$50 KrisShop eVoucher, available to Mastercard cardholders who spend at least S$800 on Singapore Airlines tickets.
Earn up to 6 mpd on Singapore Airlines tickets
From 10 January to 9 February 2023, KrisFlyer UOB Credit Cardholders can register for this promotion by sending the following SMS to 77862:
|📱 SMS to 77862
|SQUOB<space>Last 4 alphanumeric digits of NRIC/Passport<space>booking reference number
e.g. SQUOB 567A ABC123
Since a booking reference number is required, you’ll need to have booked your itinerary before claiming your miles.
Once registered, they will earn a flat bonus of 1,500 KrisFlyer miles for every S$500 spent on Singapore Airlines tickets via singaporeair.com or the SingaporeAir mobile app. It’s not clear whether the bonus would be triggered by paying for taxes and surcharges on award tickets, so do that at your own risk.
Each cardholders is limited to earning a maximum of four awards (i.e. 6,000 KrisFlyer miles; S$2,000 spend), and the total number of awards is capped at 1,000. Yes, it wouldn’t be a UOB promotion without a cap!
As a reminder, KrisFlyer UOB Credit Cardholders normally earn an uncapped 3 mpd on Singapore Airlines, Scoot, KrisShop and Kris+ transactions, so your total earn rate would be up to 6 mpd, assuming you manage to spend in blocks of S$500.
Purchases of Singapore Airlines tickets will count towards the S$800 minimum (a sneaky increase from the previous S$500!) required to earn a bonus 1.8 mpd (3 mpd total) on dining, food delivery, online shopping & travel and transport.
Is it worth it?
An earn rate of 6 mpd on Singapore Airlines tickets would be attractive indeed- provided it were guaranteed. As with all things UOB, there’s a gamble involved. You’re guaranteed at least 3 mpd, but the remaining 3 mpd depends on whether you manage to grab any of the 1,000 awards on offer.
If you don’t feel like rolling the dice, the cards below would be good alternatives.
