    Pretty attractive dining and entertainment offers, but only if you visit these places. Overall, decent but not the best cashback program.

    Good card to fill the areas for dining, grab and entertainment as it offers more than ocbc 365 (which i was previously using). But note that 12% cash back is only for these categories, and any other categories would be best purchased with another card. If you eat out often and use grab frequently (even topping up of grab wallet), this would be a card for you. They have a recent 12% rebate promotion for 3 months, but check the terms and conditions for the min spend of $600. Best to call up UOB once you receive the card and reset your statement month to the calendar month, this way it will make it easier to hit the bonus qualifying period for the 12%.

The Best Credit Cards of 2020 Review: Is UOB YOLO Card good?

Pros

  • Generous cashback of up to 8% for categories of Dining, Grab and Entertainment; great for individuals who enjoy these activities
  • There is also a 3-5% cashback on Online Spend which is ideal for those who prefer online shopping
  • An ideal starter credit card for the out-going working adult, with little to no financial commitments. UOB YOLO offers rewards in activities that they frequent like dining out, entertainment, and online shopping. The relatively manageable minimum income requirement also makes UOB YOLO more accessible to those who've just started their jobs.

Cons

  • As shown in the table above, there are distinctions between weekday and weekend cashback rates; hence, might be additional work to keep track of.
  • Not for the thriftier spenders as there is a minimum spend requirement of S$600 to qualify for the attractive cashback rates
  • Not for those looking to get rewards on essentials like Groceries, or Public Transport
  • Low S$60 cashback cap per statement month. Assuming that the UOB YOLO cardholder leads a less penny-pinching lifestyle, one might easily hit this cap and the money-back might not be much in the grand scheme of his/her monthly spendings.
