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?

    No Name

    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.

    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.

    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%.

    OCBC Cashflo Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    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.
