Bonus (up to) 12k miles for first 1,200 eligible card members

UOB PRVI MasterCard/Visa

For the first 1,200 eligible card members who signed up for the UOB PRVI miles VISA or Mastercard, you stand to gain a bonus of 12k miles (or 5k miles if you’re already a UOB card holder).

Sounds good, but do catch it in good time.

Are the bonus miles attractive enough?

Yes if..

You are able to catch the full 12k bonus miles. With the required spend of $4k, there will be another 5.6k miles, making for 17.6k miles. This is better than 4 miles/S$ spend, which is the best possible earn rate without any promotion.

Perhaps..

Assuming that you only qualify for 5k bonus miles, a $4k spend will give you 5.6k miles, making for 10.6k miles. This works out to 2.65 miles/S$. However, if your spend will, in any case, never qualify for a 4 miles/S$ on any credit card, this is still a good deal. Besides, UOB PRVI miles is a good card for basic 1.4 miles/S$ transactions.

No..
