UOB PRVI Miles Visa Card

The UOB PRVI Miles Card is recognised to be one of the best air miles cards in Singapore, thanks to its generous earn rate of 1.4 miles per dollar (local) and 2.4 miles per dollar (overseas). On travel booking sites such as Expedia and Agoda, this earn rate can go as high as 6 miles per dollar. What’s also surprising is that the annual income requirement is only S$30,000 so it’s a great entry-level card to really start racking up miles.
