United Overseas Bank Malaysia (UOB) has recently launched the new UOB Visa Infinite Metal Card. Made from bronze, this exclusive credit card is designed for affluent Malaysians and is only issued on an invitation-only basis.
The UOB Visa Infinite Metal credit card is moulded from bronze metal, distinguishing itself uniquely from the plastic credit cards everyone else uses. The metal card isn’t just for aesthetics: it is also more durable for long-term use and is exceptionally resistant to wear and tear, according to. Ronnie Lim, the Managing Director and Country Head of Personal Finance Services of UOB Malaysia.
As a premium credit card, the UOB Visa Infinite Metal offers premium travel and lifestyle benefits to meet the luxurious needs and expectations of affluent customers who travel frequently for work or leisure.
