UOB Mighty FX multi-currency account
We’ve all been there – faced with a decision before a trip on how much money we should exchange. Here’s the dilemma: would you rather carry a thick wad of notes to pay in cash or stay hands-free and incur credit card fees? Now, we’re happy to tell you that there’s another way.
Enter the UOB Mighty FX multi-currency account. It comes to your rescue when you’re out of physical cash during your shopping sprees overseas, but unlike most credit cards, it also helps you save money thanks to its zero conversion fee* from now till 31 August 2023.
Supports 11 currencies & converts instantly
So, what does having a UOB Mighty FX multi-currency account really look like? Just imagine having foreign currencies from 11 different countries in your wallet – except this is a digital wallet that’s accessible from your smartphone 24/7 via the UOB TMRW app wherever you are.
It supports 11 major currencies across the world such as the Australian Dollar, US Dollar, Euro, and Pound; as well as from Asia including offshore Renminbi*, Hong Kong Dollar, and Japanese Yen. The remaining currencies available are the Canadian Dollar, New Zealand Dollar, Swiss Franc, and of course, Singapore Dollar.
At this point, you must be wondering, “But at what rate?” This is where you must ensure that you set up alerts, so you can monitor the exchange rates even while on the go. You can also set up conversion instructions to get your money converted automatically when your preferred rate is met.
