For the stylish explorer: UOB Lady’s Card
Ladies, this one’s for you. The UOB Lady’s Card is your passport to pampering yourself while earning UNI$ at the same time. (UNI$ is UOB’s digital payment system and rewards redemption programme.) Imagine earning 15X UNI$ for every $5 spent, equivalent to 6 miles per $1, on your preferred categories, with no minimum spending required. The rewards categories include dining, fashion, travel, beauty and wellness, family, transport and entertainment. What’s more, you get to enjoy the flexibility to customise and change your selected categories every quarter based on your lifestyle preferences and changes, to maximise the rewards. You will also still earn UNI$1 per $5 spent, equivalent to 0.4 miles per $1 spent, on other purchases. How’s that for a good deal?
As a UOB Lady’s Card member, you can select one category and earn up to 3,000 UNI$ (SGD1,000 spent) per calendar month (equivalent to up to 6,000 KrisFlyer miles). Within three months, you can potentially earn up to 9,000 UNI$ (equivalent to 18,000 KrisFlyer miles), enough for a one-way Economy Class ticket to Taiwan! (Based on Singapore Airlines Saver Awards chart rates, effective 5 July 2022.)
If you’re a UOB Lady’s Solitaire Card member, you can select up to two categories and earn up to 9,000 UNI$ (SGD3,000 spent) per calendar month (equivalent to up to 54,000 KrisFlyer miles).

You can also shop with a piece of mind with e-Commerce protection and enjoy coverage for your online purchases. If you want to turn your shopping sprees into more rewards by maximising the right credit card benefits for your next trip, get a UOB Lady’s Card. UOB card members can choose to convert their UNI$ into air miles at the conversion rate of UNI$1 = 2 miles!
