I wonder why the UOB One supplementary card cannot be used together with the main card to hit the minimum spend?

I wanted to open a joint account with my fiancée hoping that the supplementary card could be used by me the main card holder to hit the tier but was told by a bank staff that the UOB one card supplementary cannot be used to help main card holder hit the tier. Can anyone advise?

    I too have a joint one account with my partner and based on our experience, the supplementary card does not count towards the $500 minimum spend as we were made aware of this reality a few months into it. You can try to request another card for the main card holder making it two debit cards under the main holders name but say a MasterCard and one Visa. It will probably help both spending counts to hit the tier.

Furthermore, with no restriction on the number of points you can stand to accumulate, you just need to choose the reward you want and you'll have time to get it, pretty much the skies can be your limit as you can use the points the way you want from redeeming shopping, travel and entertainment rewards to offsetting purchases made on your Card.

    Even as the OCBC Plus! Visa is not a cashback card, thus there is no cap, or "maximum" cash back, you get to still earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC. However do note that there is a minimum spend of $500 in places outside NTUC before the full range of rebates and LinkPoints can be unlocked.
