Earn 4.4mpd with your UOB PRVI Miles Mastercard for online & mobile contactless spend

Get up to 4.4 mpd on mobile contactless and online transactions from now and 31 Dec 2021

If you are holding the UOB PRVI Miles Mastercard in Singapore, UOB is now offering 4.4 mpd for online or mobile contactless payments on select categories, capped at a maximum of S$4,000 spend from now until 31 Dec 2021.

Under this promotion, you will earn up to UNI$6,000 or 12,000 additional bonus miles.

To be eligible, you’ll need to register for the promo (see below on how) and also make sure you spend at least S$1,000 in the following categories during the three-month promotional period:

  • Dining
  • Food Delivery
  • Groceries
  • Pharmacies

To register for the promotion, SMS in the following format to 77862:

PM <space> Last 4 alphanumeric digits of your NRIC or Passport Number

Example: If your NRIC is S1234567A, you will need to send “PM 567A” to 77862

Unfortunately, this promotion is only applicable to the PRVI Miles Mastercard version, so those holding the Visa and Amex versions are out of luck.

Up to 4.4 mpd offer

To earn the higher 4.4 mpd, you will need to spend within the following qualifying categories either using online and mobile contactless payment modes from now until 31 Dec 2021:

Eligible MCCsCategory
5411Groceries (e.g. 7-Eleven, Fairprice, Sheng Siong)

5441Candy, Nut and Confectionery Stores (e.g. Candy Empire, Godiva, MyEureka)
5462Bakeries (e.g. Krispy Kreme, Paris Baguette)

Plus, you will need to ensure the spend is processed by the respective merchants in Singapore Dollars and is posted as either:

  • An online transaction via a payment gateway in Singapore, or
  • mobile contactless transaction via Apple Pay, Fitbit Pay, Google Pay and/or Samsung Pay

Note that contactless transactions made by tapping the physical card will not be eligible.

Once registered, you will need to spend a minimum of S$1,000 in these bonus categories during the whole promotion period, in order to earn 11 UNI$ (3.5 UNI$ base rate + 7.5 UNI$ bonus, total equivalent to 4.4 mpd) per S$5 spent on eligible transactions charged to your card.

The maximum bonus you can earn during the promotion is capped at UNI$6,000 (equivalent to 12,000 miles, or S$4,000 spend). One other thing to note is that eligible transactions made by your supplementary cardholders will count towards the promotion.

SMART$ merchants

Note that SMART$ merchants are automatically excluded from this promotion, given that UOB doesn’t issue UNI$ for transactions made with these merchants.

These merchants include:

  • Cold Storage
  • Giant
  • Guardian
  • Jasons
  • Market Place

You will however earn UNI$ for online transactions (e.g. home delivery) at these merchants, since the SMART$ programme only applies to in-store purchases.

When do the bonus miles credit?

The regular 1.4 miles per S$1 spent will post according to your statement cycle, but the bonus miles will be credited to your account by 31st March 2022. While this seems like a three-month wait after the promotion ends, usually UOB posts them much earlier than that but you should expect it to come in only after the end of the promotion period (i.e. after 31 Dec 2021).

Final thoughts

For once UOB is doing something right – by not capping the number of registrations for a promotion!

Having said that, this is also a pretty generous promotion: 12,000 bonus miles is a lot, coupled with a wide range of merchant categories for online and mobile contactless spend.

Just remember to register for the promotion, clock the minimum required S$1,000 spend in the bonus categories, and earn away!

To register for the promotion, SMS in the following format to 77862:
