Can one apply for a UOB One Card from UOB without having a bank account with the bank?

Can I apply to get a UOB One card even as I have no current account with the bank? If yes how do we access the credit card rewards portal especially as I would not have an ibanking account with the bank?

    No Name

    Well you definitely can as you should understand that a bank account is only one type of product the bank offers from very many. For me personally I have credit cards with both DBN and CITI but I have no bank accounts with them. Be rest assured they will give you an iBanking account to access the credit card rewards portal.

In respect to the minimum requirement of five transactions per month for the UOB One card does each GRAB ride count as one transaction? For the minimum 5 transactions per month for the UOB one card, does each GRAB ride count as 1 transaction?

I realise I have been spending more than my maximum cashback limit on the UOB One Card recently. Would it be a good idea to get another miles card as a secondary card?

Zero Travel Related Online Merchants

The Citi SMRT card is a pretty decent card for spending but they unfortunately exclude travel related online merchants. This to me is the downside of the card and may be a reason to get another card for travel websites.

A 5% cash rebate on fuel purchases and a 16% instant discount is a great deal for me I must say, the HSBC VISA Platinum Credit Card indeed makes driving more fun for me as i always look forward to the 16% instant discount plus 5% cash rebate on all fuel spend at Caltex and Shell stations

Earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase

If you target to spend on major event tickets and high price items with the plan to split by instalment then this card is for you. However I notice that if you have an existing OCBC saving account, it makes bill payments much more seamless. And aside from being able to split payment into monthly instalments interest free, you can earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase. Only few cards in the market that allow auto convert spending into interest free instalment and still be entitled to 0.5% or 1% cash rebate.

Poor and upleasant hotline

I am a fresh graduate and just started my first job, I signed up for this card due to the onetime $150 cash back reward for $800 spend within the first two months. However for its main monthly rewards, it is nothing to be pleasant about and the hotline is very bad, I even had to hold more than 20 minutes during non-peak hour.

Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

I have held this card for quite a long time and one thing I like about the card is the fact that it is used for CapitaLand malls and they are almost everywhere. So I enjoy dining taking advantage of the 10x rewards merchants to accumulate the points faster. Imagine getting close to 6.5% rebates on dining. Not to forget their sign up bonus of $60 rebates in vouchers when you spend $1,500. That's a 4% rebate excluding the points you will earn which will convert into vouchers too.
