Where can I safely set my car jack and jack up the car so I can place my jack stands at the pinch weld locations?? Really a serious oversight by Kia!! I've put some extensive time searching this to find nothing. Not sure I feel comfortable jacking beside the pinch welds to get the stands under.
Anybody that has some good advice on this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome aboard, the spots where you jack the car up at is where you need to set the jack stands. You need to figure out how to jack it up & put the jack stand right next to it.

Is this for long terms storage or an oil change / maintenance?

What I do for maintenance is, jack from the pinch weld and place my jack stands under the control arms near the inner pivot of the control arm. I lower the car so it's NEAR to the jack stands but all the weight is still on my jack. Yes I trust my jack, but not with my life.

If the jack fails, the jack stands will easily protect anyone who is under the car.
