    UOB PRVI Card

    My current miles credit card. Good miles per dollar for both overseas and local spending. And it is easy to reach UOB customer service compared to other banks.

    One of the highest entry level miles paying card. Caveat is the 2 years expiry date of the miles which means you need to chalk up the spending within 2 years

    One of the better options out there to earn your miles. With a high miles to dollar rate, it’s the card I would recommend to accumulate your miles with ease.

    The UOB PRVI Miles Card is one of the best air miles credit cards in Singapore with high earn rates of $1 = 1.4 miles (local) and $1 = 2.4 miles (overseas). This is all the more impressive considering its entry level income requirement of $30,000.

    Highest miles earn rate. Easy to use and can even use it as a ezlink. No need to worry about the hassle. Will recommend it to family and friends.

UOB PRVI Miles Card

Citi PremierMiles Visa Card

Credit Card

I'd take Citi PM for two reasons: Miles that never expire, and miles that can be earned from the first dollar. I hate to be awarded nothing because I bought a discount pack of wet tissues at $4.90, then go home and find 100K UNI$ wiped from my account because I forgot to transfer them out to KF (where another 3 year countdown starts). However, if your expenditure is generally high, the UOB PRVI has its merits, and you'd also be able to accumulate miles faster to burn them, since you have high expenditure. If you don't want to go through the trouble of calculating which card earns more miles based on a sample of your expenditure, I'd rather stick with Citi in this case.

SIMPLYgo Mastercard consolidates its simplygo for a few days into one transactions. So its not issue. Also that means you can hit UOB wording of minimum SGD5 per transaction easily due to amstercard conslidating the Simplygo transactions

Both cards have limits. My suggestion is to have both of them. 1. For miles calculation. We usually didn't think about the spending block. Which UOB has the block in $5 and CITI is in $1. To simplest the usage. You can use CITI to pay any bill which under $20. And use UOB to pay the bill over $20. You can refer to this chart. And here's the formula if you need. UOB=INT(INT(amount/5) 3.5) 2 , CITI=INT(INT(amount) 1.2) ! 2. UOB Amex has a benefit which gives you 20,000 miles every year with $50,000 spending which is the most important attraction to me. The maximum rate under this benefit becomes 1.8miles/dollar. And that's why I apply this Amex one rather than visa one. 3. Amex channel has a lot of limitations which you can not use it to pay tax, telephone bill or insurance(I'm not sure). But to be honest. Citi also changed their policy on Oct 2018 which you can not earn any points from insurance or electric wallet top-up. So if one card has no benefit from certain category spending. Please just choose the other card. Or the rebate card. 4. For the redeem. If you can not earn points very fast. Please choose CITI or even DBS altitude. Their points never expired. Or just use the rebate card which may even better for you. If you can earn points fast. UOB's two-year limit will not be an issue. 5. KEEP YOUR MILES UNDER ONE AIRLINE! Now airlines have different alliances. So use one airline account to redeem different airlines tickets is far than enough for you. Because 1. you usually take SQ. 2. Miles transfer from bank to airlines is blocked in 10k. But your reward ticket uses variable miles. The balance miles always become waste if it's not in your SQ account. Conclusion: No need to consider how many airlines the card support. You only need SQ. 6. Join the miles promotion from CITI. Last year they got 43k miles marathon. This year they have 38k miles activity. Which let you spend 8888 dollars within 2 mths. and pay 288 admin fee to get extra 28k miles. It's not bad. And last year 20X promotion is really good. UOB doesn't have too many promotions. Just the 10miles promotion for Agoda is not bad(have maximum S$1500 limit). But Agoda usually has a lot of rebate for cards which make 10miles promotion not worth. 7. CITI have Priority Pass. UOB doesn't. If you need miles. That means you need lounges. PP gives you the basic lounge access. Better than nothing. You can add Citi to your apple pay. UOB Amex can not. If I can choose only one of them. I'll choose UOB Amex.

Spending on UOB credit cards does not award you miles directly. Instead they are rewarded in the form UNI$ to be redeemed into miles. Not only do Miles/Travel card earn miles. Reward cards such as UOB Preferred platinum visa (PPV) earn UNI$ which can then be converted into miles. In fact not just UOB Cards work in this manner, DBS Cards work in the same way as well. So to answer your question, Yes you can (with the exception of Cashback/Rebate cards)
