United Bank of Africa (UBA) says it has lowered the international spending limit on its naira cards to $20 a month. The monthly international spending limit on the Naira Cards used to be $100 monthly.
This means you can use your United Bank of Africa (UBA) for more foreign currency transactions either online or at any POS pay points around the world.
The financial institution disclosed this in an email sent to its customers on Thursday.
According to the bank, the naira card limit will only be available via web purchases, adding that the service will not be available on POS and ATMs.
“In line with our promise to keep you updated on services, we have reviewed Naira Card limits for international transactions, and this will take effect 1st of March, 2022,” the newsletter reads.
“Remember you can use your UBA Dollar, Pounds or Euro Card for international POS, ATM and web transactions. If you do not have one and would like to subscribe, please visit a branch close to you.”
The development will cause restrictions for customers to spend about N10,000 only per month on their naira cards for international transactions like Netflix subscriptions, ads on Facebook, Twitter and other platforms.
A lot of customers that usually pay for monthly webhosting bills, Netflix and so on will no longer afford to do that.
