UOB Visa Infinite Metal Card extends 80,000 miles welcome offer, but removes Grab vouchers


The UOB Visa Infinite Metal Card's 80,000 miles welcome offer is now available till 31 March 2024, but the S$200 Grab vouchers offered in 2023 are gone.

In June 2023, the UOB Visa Infinite Metal Card received a significant enhancement, which buffed the overseas earn rate to 2.4 mpd and added an unlimited-visit DragonPass lounge membership for the cardholder and one guest.

On top of this, a welcome offer of up to 80,000 miles & S$200 Grab vouchers was launched. The welcome offer was originally set to lapse on 31 December 2023, but UOB has now extended it till 31 March 2024.

Unfortunately, the S$200 Grab vouchers have been removed, which makes the offer less attractive than before.

New UOB Visa Infinite Metal Card welcome offer

From 1 January to 31 March 2024, new UOB Visa Infinite Metal Cardholders who pay the S$654 annual fee and spend at least S$4,000 within 30 days of approval will receive:

  New customers Existing customers
Pay S$654 annual fee 25,000 miles 25,000 miles
Spend S$4,000 within 30 days of approval 55,000 miles 15,000 miles
Total 80,000 miles 40,000 miles

A new customer is defined as someone who:

  • does not currently hold any principal UOB credit cards, and
  • has not cancelled a principal UOB credit card in the past six months prior to 1 January 2024

Unlike most UOB sign-up offers, there is no cap on the number of eligible applicants. 

Given the S$654 annual fee, you’re basically paying 0.82 cents (new) or 1.64 cents (existing) per mile. Back when S$200 Grab vouchers were thrown into the mix, this was a very attractive offer indeed, but now I’d only consider it if I met the new customer definition.

What counts as qualifying spend?

Eligible transactions include all retail transactions in local or foreign currency, and a full list of exclusions can be found at point 1.5 of the T&Cs.

The key exclusions to highlight are:

  • Charitable donations
  • Government payments
  • Insurance
  • ipaymy
  • Prepaid account top-ups (e.g. GrabPay or YouTrip)
  • Utilities
  • UOB Payment Facility

For avoidance of doubt, CardUp, education and hospital transactions are eligible to earn miles, and will count towards minimum spend. Moreover, the UOB Visa Infinite Metal Card is one of the rare cards to still earn rewards on education (schools, enrichment centres and higher education fees), so enjoy it while it lasts.

Supplementary cardholder spending will be pooled with the principal cardholder’s in determining if the minimum spend has been met. And before you say “isn’t that obvious?”, remember that UOB is not above such shenanigans.

When will the bonus be credited?

The 25,000 miles for paying the annual fee will be credited (in the form of UNI$) when the annual fee is posted.

The additional 55,000/15,000 miles for new/existing customers will be credited (in the form of UNI$) two months after the annual fee is posted. 

Terms and Conditions

The full T&Cs for this offer can be found here.

What can you do with UNI$?

UNI$ transfer to frequent flyer programs at a 1:2 ratio, with a minimum transfer block of 5,000 UNI$ (let’s ignore AirAsia, because converting points there is like throwing them away):

Frequent Flyer Programme Conversion Ratio
(UNI$: Partner)
krisflyer logo 5,000: 10,000
asia miles logo 5,000: 10,000
2,500: 4,500

UOB Visa Infinite Metal Cardholders enjoy a waiver of the usual S$25 conversion fee. And since UNI$ pool, you can use the Visa Infinite Metal Card as a conduit to convert UNI$ earned on other UOB cards for free too.

Review: UOB Visa Infinite Metal Card


The UOB Visa Infinite Metal Card has extended its 80,000 miles sign-up offer till 31 March 2024, but the deal is less lucrative than before due to the nerfing of the S$200 Grab vouchers.

That said, you could hit the minimum spend for the sign-up bonus with commonly-excluded transactions like hospitals and education expenses, so it could still be worth considering for new-to-bank customers. 

The best time to act was 2023 though!
