Compare KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card vs. HSBC Visa Infinite Card vs. Standard Chartered Journey Card

In this comparison with other popular air miles credit cards like the HSBC Visa Infinite Card and Standard Chartered Journey Card, the KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card offers the lowest minimum interest rate chargeable (as of April 2024).

When it comes to annual fee, the KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card charges a lower fee than the HSBC Visa Infinite Card, but the Standard Chartered Journey Card gives the most savings on this every year as it doesn’t charge any annual fees.

As for air miles benefits, the Standard Chartered Journey Card definitely takes the cake with the most attractive welcome bonus air miles of up to 45,000, despite offering less attractive miles earn rate for specific categories i.e. the KrisFlyer UOB Card gives you 3 KrisFlyer miles per S$1 spent on a wider range of categories including online travel and transport, food delivery, dining, and online shopping, which is more than the 3 categories of transport, food delivery, groceries and food stores which the Standard Chartered Journey Card offers miles for.

Another great thing about the KrisFlyer UOB Card is that it has one of the lowest barriers of entry in terms of the minimum income requirement for both Singaporeans/PR and foreigners as compared to the HSBC Visa Infinite Credit Card and Standard Chartered Journey Card.
