      Another miles card worth getting. They are fairly good to allow fee waiver and easy to use at many merchants.

      [Fee Waivers] if you are thinking of getting a waiver, forget it, its impossible. Yes they do provide free miles that comes with the annual fee, however in these COVID times, god knows when you can utilize those miles.

      UOB KrisFlyer Credit Card

      When I first applied for the card, I should have received it about 1-2 weeks before my trip. Tremendous amount of stress and calls did the card finally appear via courier a day before my trip. But I must say, it's easy in a sense where I don't have to transfer my miles anymore. And there's no cost for doing so.

      Customer service was not helpful when contacted, and fee waivers were impossible on this card. Cancelled the card as I was coerced into either paying the annual fee or risk card cancellation. Horrible experience.

      [Fee Waivers] i put an installment on the card, using it every month as initially i wanted to keep it. with covid, i dont use it for booking flights as we cannot travel - but UOB is very enthusiastic on charging me the annual fee without listening to explanation. [Customer Service] clueless bunch. after this fiasco, no, no, and no. my friends have cancelled their UOB cards. if you really want a good credit card - go for amex.

      [Miles Card] It is a great miles card, and it is great to have a direct credit of points to my Krisflyer points directly. Also the design of the card makes it look very prestigious. Sad to say, I have not used it for almost 8 months now since it is pointless to earn Krisflyer miles now.

      This card is the best for earning miles! And the miles goes straight to your Krisflyer account. This is now my default card to use

      UOB KrisFlyer Credit Card

      Generally, I believe that most banks except for higher tier cards would require you to pay annual i.e affluent cards and metal cards where Mass cards would qualify for waiver upon a minimum spend of x amount per annum. No doubt it’s one of the better miles card out there in view that it works well with the krisflyer account. However, the catch is that you need to spend minimum $500 on sq or scoot to qualify for such “bonus miles” where these bonus miles will only be given to you in the next calendar year. However, the bonus miles given doesn’t have breakdown of your spending in your previous year. 1. Not really user friendly as who does an excel to really track these to ensure that you really get the bonus miles? Note: if during the calendar year they decided to disqualify some of the categories, you won’t get the bonus miles even for previous spends I.e grabpay 2. In terms of their call centre, I’ve been getting different answers 3. It’s 1 year old with UOB, despite my holdings with them and my solus credit card (where I spend approx 20k-30k in my previous year) they are firm that no waiver is allow. In summary, I’m not really a bank hater. It really, there’s no justification and reason for me to stay with UOB. So goodbye krisflyer card and goodbye to all my deposits. Cheers!

      [Promotions and Perks] I got this card in around March 2020, and used it mainly for the sign up bonuses. It is my first UOB card so I was kind of hoping for the sign up cash reward of $200 which has not come in yet. So I am still waiting hence I feel that the overall rating is not the best. [Miles Card] However, the benefits of this card is similar to the Krisflyer AMEX cards which allow you more perks if you spend on air tickets and also you can get your miles credited directly into your Krisflyer account so there are no points exchange fees.
