How are the KrisFlyer UOB Account miles awarded?

I will apply for the KrisFlyer UOB Account primarily if it offers good miles and interest on my spending. Are there key travel benefits a current user can furnish me with?

    You can earn KrisFlyer miles and interest when you spend and save on your KrisFlyer UOB Debit Card and Account. Bonus KrisFlyer miles earned will be capped at 5% of the Monthly Average Balance in your KrisFlyer UOB Account, while Bonus KrisFlyer miles earned will be credited to your KrisFlyer membership account directly every month. The Bonus KrisFlyer miles are credited within the first 7 working days of each month, for the miles earned in the preceding month.

Great customer service officers

I have had this card for a long while. The good thing with the card is that AMEX have been waiving my annual fees which is probably why I still have the card. The pros with this card include – Great customer service officers that are friendly and will do their best to help you with prompt follow ups, direct credit of miles to your Krisflyer account, many small promos every few months with a fantastic sign up promo, no minimum spending and perfect for concert lovers as AMEX offers priority to provide tickets.

Too bad it is not an unlimited cashback card

Unfortunately, the HSBC advance card is not an unlimited cashback card as they have a cap on the cashback per month, even for advance banking clients. Furthermore, if you are not an advance banking client, you would not get subsequent card fee waiver if you do not get to spend at least $12,000 in a year.

5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and more

For me nothing beats the 5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and transport (that is taxis, ride hailing, trains and buses inclusive), locally and overseas when you spend minimum S$600 per month. And the cash rebate is capped at S$150 per month. So if you don’t drive, not to worry as you can enjoy 5% cash rebate for your transportation needs, be it a taxi ride, a booking made via ride hailing apps, or trains/buses.

Ease of use to accumulate on miles

The American Express Krisflyer Credit Card has an attractive sign up bonus and it is easy to use to accumulate on miles as no conversion into KF account is required, and monthly auto “sweeping” of miles help save in the conversion fee. I also have had good experiences with their customer care service as the call center service is absolutely awesome.
