UBL Platinum Credit Card is for the high net worth segment of Pakistan. The card has numerous features that compliment the lifestyle for those who enjoy traveling, fitness and discounts.
To be eligible for the UBL Platinum Credit Card one should earn a bare minimum of PKR 100,000/- per month as a salaried individual at a reputable company, or if you are a self-employed, business person or professional you need to be earning PKR 250,000/- per month.
Loyalty Program: Previously UBL Platinum offered its cardholders reward points, however, UBL converted the reward points to air miles. For every PKR 50 spent on the card, a cardholder accumulates air miles that they can redeem against the purchase of airfare. In order to redeem the air miles, the cardholder must pay for the air ticket on their credit card. Once the air far has been paid, the cardholder must call the contact center on 111-825-888 to inform them of the purchase and request a reversal of the amount equivalent to the points one has accumulated. Just so that you know each point is equivalent to Rs. 0.03.
Airport Lounges: UBL Platinum Credit card holders are offered complimentary access to CIP airport lounges locally. For international lounge access, you are given a Priority Pass. As a UBL Platinum card holder, you get a complimentary Standard Priority Pass card. Priority Pass on its own would have cost a customer USD 99 if they had opted to subscribe to it directly from Priority Pass, being a Platinum card holder helps you save the USD 99 that you would have had to pay if one wanted access to international lounges. Moreover, the Standard Priority Pass does not offer any complimentary visits to international airport lounges, the card holder is charged USD 35 per person for each visit to an International Lounge on using the Priority Pass.
Complimentary Access to Shapes Health Club: UBL Platinum provides its card holders complimentary access to Shapes Health Clubs in Karachi, Lahore, and Multan. Cardholders are entitled to 8 complimentary visits in a month, this is combined for both the primary cardholders and supplementary cardholders. However, if your combined monthly spending is over PKR 50,000 a month, you are given additional 8 complimentary visits. If not you are charged PKR 1,200 plus GST from the 9th visit on wards. This is a great feature on this card since it gets a cardholder access to a state of the art fitness facility in Karachi, Lahore and Multan.
