    Hassle free card, not much of an issue for me. Especially with UOB One card, good for usage, rebates and service is alright.

    I would like to share my experience with UOB one multiplier. The criteria of credit salary is misleading. I credited my salary into the UOB One account but was not entitled the interest under the "Credit Salary" category. End up I only get 1.5% for spending above $500 on credit card. This is the reply from UOB when I enquired about it. "In order to qualify for the salary credit (purpose code: SALA), your employer will need to use bulk payroll service (if your employer is banking with UOB). Single GIRO/FAST or manual standing instruction transaction does not qualify as salary credit. If your employer is holding other bank, please get your employer to check directly with the respective bank." For outsider like me, how am I suppose to know about it? Even the branch officer that I visit told me that I just need to credit my salary.

    Perfect if you have at least 60k-75k lounging around, easiest hurdles to meet, just 2 criteria, $500 credit card spending and 3 GIRO bill payments, for a 2.43% yield. I started out with OCBC 360, then created UOB One after maxing out the 60k limit, just transferred 50k to UOB One at one go, then re-accumulate in another hurdle account (I use the salary credit, bill payment which pay to the same folks I GIRO to, another $500 credit card spending), whichever else that suits you best.

    I have been trying to apply for the UOB one card for about 3 weeks. I was first told to apply through internet banking account. That got rejected because i had to upload all my documents. Your staff called and i was busy at that time. So i requested that they sent me an email and they refused to. So i told them i will apply through the website without logging in so that i can upload all the needed forms. I tried to do that when i got home and did that, after applying, they said it could not be processed because there is a pending application. Called back. was told to wait a day before they can abort the application. IT TOOK ONE WHOLE WEEK JUST TO ABORT IT. When it was finally aborted. I reapplied and patiently uploaded all by documents... 4 days later i get a notification, saying i need to upload EVERYTHING AGAIN....
