UOB now offers 1.4 Miles per Dollar on Train and Bus Rides (ABT)

While Singaporeans have been able to use an eligible Mastercard for train and bus rides since 20 March 2017, UOB has just announced that customers using the PRVI Mastercard can now earn 1.4 miles per S$1 on all eligible rides in the Account-Based Ticketing (ABT) pilot with Land Transport Authority (LTA) and TransitLink. Even though the UOB PRVI Mastercard gives out 3.5 UNI$ per S$5, transactions in the ABT are processed and charged after a total of S$15 is spent on transit fares or after the charges have been accumulated for up to 5 days - whichever is earlier.

While being able to earn up to 1.4 miles per S$1 on all eligible rides using the UOB PRVI Mastercard is definitely a much welcome change, I do not see enough to switch over from my HSBC's Revolution Credit Card and EZ-Link combo which gives me 2 miles per S$1 for up to S$200 each month. Sure, there may be a convenience fee of S$0.25 with each reload but hey that's not a real consideration at all.
