Is the UOB PRVI Miles card better in terms of benefits?

I hear that UOB hiked foreign currency transactions made but it does not affect the UOB PRVI Miles. What other benefits do stand to gain from with this card?

    For earning rates, yes UOB is fantastic but do note that your spending has to be minimum $5 to accrue any miles. UOB earns you 1.4 miles for local and 2.4 for overseas trips which is one of the best rates I think. If you’re using your credit card overseas, be sure to avoid the DCC scam and activate your magnetic strip only for the period necessary.

    This card gives me $80 cash rebates every month.

    OCBC 365 Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    I fancy the OCBC 365 credit because it has cash rebate of $80, but only after you full fill their criteria. They require a minimum spending of $800 per month which in turn earns interest from different spending. This card suits me just fine being that I have broad spending habit and in the process it gives me $80 cash rebates every month. My only dislike is the rebate on the general spending which is 0.3%.

    American Express Platinum Card / American Express International

    I like the idea that I can receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points when I get to successfully refer any of my friends to the card. Even more so as my friends can also receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points upon spend of S$5,000 in the first 3 months of their Card Membership. I think that is pretty much a win-win situation.

    I find it very pleasant and rewarding the Platinum Wellness offerings of the AMEX Express Platinum Credit Card as I get to rest and replenish after a hard week at work. I treat myself to spa privileges that come with my Card Membership with spa vouchers from Adeva Spa, Spa Rael and The Ultimate.
