Get 3.33% base cashback if you spend $500, $1,000, or $2,000 a month for three consecutive months. Up to 6.67% additional cashback for Grab, Shopee, and Diary Farm merchants.

When you spend on select merchants, there is additional 5% cashback. UOB One has been updating this list from time to time, and this is the third time this year:

This means that the cashback yield on expenditure made at the above merchants go as high as 8.33% or 10% depending on the quarterly cashback tier you are at.

Given the range of items sold on Shopee, this makes UOB One significantly easier to use for cashback. If you can regularly spend a fixed amount every month on the above merchants, a 8.33 to 10% cashback rate is unbeatable. Just make sure you clock the right amount per month.

A consideration you should have is that Shopee does give some discount when you pay for things using ShopeePay, so do weigh your options to see which gives you the best bang for your buck when shopping on Shopee.
