UBS Offers Super Card for the Extremely Well-Heeled

The UBS Visa Infinite credit card is now available. The sleek metal credit card is designed to meet the luxury lifestyle needs of high and ultra-high-net-worth clients. 

The card provides an array of premium rewards, travel benefits and credits, including exclusive savings when users fly, stay, cruise or drive, and a rich earnings structure with rewards points that never expire while the card is open. By using the card, clients also have the benefit of concierge-style advice on all of their financial needs – from day-to-day cash management to long-term investment planning – working directly with their UBS Financial Advisor.

Unparalleled client focus is a core UBS principle and translates into a bespoke, best-in-class experience for UBS credit card clients.

UBS Visa Infinite credit card clients will have 24/7 access to a U.S.-based Concierge and Client Services Group, as well as Financial Advisors who are able to ensure a smooth card relationship by setting up automatic payments and enrolling clients in fraud, activity, and travel alerts. By having a UBS credit card, the client, together with their Advisor, can make more informed decisions when planning their financial future when both assets and liabilities are in one place.

UBS Visa Infinite credit card clients enjoy a wide array of exclusive travel benefits, credits and a rewards program with flexible redemption options, which result in a total combined value that may exceed $4,000 per year.

The card features a rich 3-2-1 earning structure – three points per dollar spent for commercial air travel, two points per dollar spent for gas and groceries, and one point per dollar spent for all other eligible purchases.

Clients also gain access to a travel-focused concierge service, special amenities, and perks at some of the world’s most prestigious hotels and properties. Users can fly on any commercial airline for fewer points than most other rewards programs and with no blackout dates, booking fees, or point expiration.

New UBS Visa Infinite credit card clients can earn up to 50,000 bonus points by spending $3,000 within the first 3 months of approval.

sThe UBS Visa Infinite credit card replaces the current UBS Preferred Visa Signature® credit card with no change in the $495 annual card fee. Existing UBS Preferred Visa Signature credit card clients will automatically receive the UBS Visa Infinite credit card.
