With a bunch of nerfs (and a near miss) in recent memory, the miles collecting crowd needs a bit of good news, and a tiny bit of that is exactly what we are getting. The UOB Lady’s 6 miles per dollar earn rate, originally ending on 29th February 2024, is getting a small reprieve – the end date for the upsized earn rate is now 31st March 2024.
It’s mostly good news, I suppose, but the more optimistic side of me was expecting a much longer extension of 6 months or so. A month’s extension is surely better than nothing, but it does pale in contrast with the DBS yuu which recently had its extremely high 17.5% earn rate extended indefinitely.
One more month of 6 miles per dollar
We probably shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth, however, since this additional month means yet another bunch of bonus miles to be earned. For me, it means another set of travel expenses I could use this card for in the month of March.
Depending on how much you spend within the month and which of the UOB Lady’s card you own, it could be up to bonus 6,000 miles (S$3,000 × 2 miles per dollar bonus earn rate).
S$350 Cash credits:
The first 200 new-to-UOB credit card customers in March 2024 who successfully apply for an eligible UOB Credit Card between 1 March 2024 and 31 March 2024 (both dates inclusive) and spend a min. of S$1,000 per month for 2 consecutive months from their card approval date, will receive S$350 cash credit.
Terms and conditions
Still a pretty useful 4 miles per dollar card
Even after its earn rate drops back to the usual, not-so-exciting 4 miles per dollar, the UOB Lady’s cards are useful ones to have. For people who prefer miles, they are still the only miles-earning cards that work with the currently excellent UOB One bank account.
Also, the UOB Lady’s cards can be used in conjunction with cards like UOB Preferred Platinum Visa or UOB Visa Signature. The latter two give you 4 miles per dollar on Paywave transactions which is a lot more versatile than having to pick categories for UOB Lady’s. There is a cap of S$1,110 per month for UOB Preferred Platinum Visa and S$2,000 for UOB Visa Signature, and UOB Lady’s can hence help you save the spend cap of those cards for more general spending while the UOB Lady’s can step in for the categories you choose.
Card strategy change afoot
While I had held out hope that UOB would maintain the earn rate for longer, it seems that my card strategy will change with this. It’s probably time to provide an update too since we are in a new year, so stay subscribed for updates on my card strategy for 2024 and more great deals!
