Extended: KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card uncapped 25,000 miles sign-up offer


From now till 31 July 2023, get 25,000 bonus miles with a new KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card and a minimum spend of S$2,000 in 60 days.

Back in February, UOB launched a rarely-seen uncapped sign-up offer for the KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card, offering 25,000 bonus miles with a minimum spend of S$2,000 in the first 60 days of approval.

This offer was originally set to lapse on 30 April 2023, but has now been renewed till 31 July 2023. 

KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card 25,000 miles sign-up bonus


From 1 May to 31 July 2023, new-to-UOB customers who apply and are approved for a KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card can enjoy up to 25,000 bonus miles when they spend at least S$2,000 in the first 60 days of approval.

❓ New-to-UOB definition

New-to-UOB is defined as customers as those who:

  • do not currently hold a principal UOB credit card, and
  • have not cancelled a principal UOB credit card in the 6-month period before 1 May 2023

In other words, if you cancelled your last principal UOB credit card on or before 31 October 2022 and do not currently hold any principal UOB credit cards, you’ll be eligible for this offer.

This is broken down into:

Bonus Min. Spend Cap
5,000 miles S$5 on first trxn. No cap
20,000 miles S$2,000 in 60 days No cap

5,000 miles will be awarded to cardholders who make their first spend of at least S$5. 

20,000 miles will be awarded to applicants who spend at least S$2,000 within the first 60 days of approval. 

❓ Existing UOB customer?
Existing UOB customers who apply for a KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card are eligible for the first spend 5,000 miles bonus. However, this is a once-per-lifetime offer; if you previously held this card, you cannot receive the bonus a second time even if you sign-up again.

The first year’s annual fee of S$194.40 is automatically waived, so assuming you have spend coming up, these bonus miles are essentially “free”. 

Do note that UOB markets this offer as “up to 31,000 miles”. Where do the extra 6,000 miles come from? It assumes the entire S$2,000 minimum spend is clocked on 3 mpd categories, such as:

  • Singapore Airlines
  • Scoot
  • KrisShop
  • Kris+
  • “Accelerated Miles” categories such as dining, food delivery, online shopping & travel, transport (the minimum spend to unlock this was recently increased to S$800)

Assuming you spent the S$2,000 elsewhere (in Singapore dollars), you’d earn 2,400 base miles (@ 1.2 mpd), for a total of 27,400 miles. 

When will the bonus be credited?

The 5,000 bonus miles for the first spend bonus will be credited in the following month after the first transaction is made.

The 20,000 bonus miles for the sign-up offer will be credited according to the following timeline.

Card approval month 20,000 miles credited by Reflected in KF account by
May 2023 30 Sep 2023 10 Oct 2023
Jun 2023 31 Oct 2023 10 Nov 2023
Jul 2023 30 Nov 2023 10 Dec 2023

All miles will be credited directly to the linked KrisFlyer account, with no transfer fees applicable.

What counts as qualifying spend?

Approved cardholders will need to spend a minimum of S$2,000 in the first 60 days of approval. The full list of exclusions can be found in the T&Cs (point 1.6), but the key ones to note are:

  • Charitable donations
  • Education
  • Government transactions
  • GrabPay top-ups
  • Hospitals
  • ipaymy
  • Medical services
  • Insurance premiums
  • Utilities

For avoidance of doubt, CardUp spending will count towards the minimum spend.

If they spend at least S$800 on SIA Group transactions in a membership year (excluding Kris+), they will earn 3 mpd on dining, food delivery, online shopping & travel, and transport.

Cardholders also receive instant KrisShopper Insider status (provided they’re not already KrisShopper members), which awards an extra 3 mpd on KrisShop purchases.

Review: KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card


The KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card has extended its 25,000 bonus miles sign-up offer to 31 July 2023, and with a minimum spend of S$2,000, this represents one of the better sign-up deals out there- especially since there’s no cap to worry about!

Cardholders can look forward to an uncapped 3 mpd on dining, food delivery, online shopping and travel, and transport. It’s true you could earn 4 mpd on most of these categories, but there’s usually a cap involved. If you’re making a big-ticket purchase, then this could very well be the best card to use (provided you don’t mind waiting up to 14 months for the bonus miles to be credited!).

Moreover, cardholders get periodic discounts on KrisFlyer Experiences redemptions, which could help save miles if you’re into that sort of thing.
