5000 miles for $5 spend: Promotion extended

A couple of months ago, I wrote about the newly launched KrisFlyer UOB credit card. I explained that while this card isn’t the best card to earn miles under the specialised spend strategy, it’s nonetheless great for those who wish to carry fewer cards in their wallets.

One of the promotions for existing UOB cardmembers that accompanied the launch was to simply spend S$5.00 and earn 5000 miles along with it. This promotion was slated to end on 30 Jun 2019, but has since been extended to 14 Jul 2019.


Once the eligible spend is fulfilled, the first 3000 miles will be credited directly into your KrisFlyer account, with the remaining 2000 miles credited by 31 Oct 2019. This transaction must take place within 60 days of card approval.

For those who have not already done so, there is absolutely no harm in getting your hands on this card and pocketing the miles. But hey, there are other means, just like the going Amex promotion, to get miles literally for free!
