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.

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.

Looking to maximize on the number of priority pass visits and other privileges

If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you. The reduced general mile earn rate is worth the trade-off for the unlimited priority pass memberships, as well as the high number of limo and meet-and-assist services that you can use.
