UOB, American Express, UOB Absolute Cashback American Express Card, Cashback, credit card, card spendUOB and American Express have joined forces to launch the UOB Absolute Cashback American Express Card® for consumers who want a cashback product that earns them cashback on all card spend.

The UOB Absolute Cashback Card is a credit card by a local bank that offers customers cashback on all credit card spend, which includes those on insurance, school fees, hospitals, rent and wallet top-ups which are typically not eligible for rewards and cashback. Customers can stretch their spending dollar with the UOB Absolute Cashback Card’s highest flat cashback earn rate of 1.7 per cent in Singapore, without having to worry about any spend exclusions, meeting a minimum spend requirement.

Jacquelyn Tan, Head of Group Personal Financial Services, UOB, said that the Bank’s expanded suite of cashback credit cards is in tune with customers’ shifting preference towards optimising the value of their spend through cashback cards. The UOB Absolute Cashback Card is a strategic addition to the Bank’s credit card line-up, which includes the UOB One Card, to give customers the choice of a cashback card that best meets their lifestyle priorities and needs.

“Given the disruptions of COVID-19 to the economy in 2020 and increased expenses for necessities such as groceries and utilities, more consumers are looking for financial solutions to help them draw more value from their spend. More than 70 per cent of new UOB credit card sign-ups in 2020 were for cashback cards, up from 45 per cent in 2019.”

“Last year we enhanced our flagship cashback card, the UOB One Card, to continue to provide the highest cashback rate in the market in areas where our customers spend the most and which align to their lifestyle priorities, such as household essential items, online shopping and ride-hailing.

“The UOB Absolute Cashback Card complements our suite of cashback credit cards to meet the growing demand for a simple way to earn cashback on all card spend, which is most prominent among affluent and mass affluent consumers according to our survey findings.”

Mr Sanjiv Malhotra, Vice President and General Manager, Global Network Services, South East Asia and South Pacific, American Express said, “American Express continues to expand our product offerings tailored to support the evolving needs and lifestyle of UOB’s customers. The introduction of the UOB Absolute Cashback Card strengthens our relationship with UOB and shows our commitment to delivering products with the best value and relevance to our customers.”
