The AMEX Krisflyer credit card is one of the best miles card in the market for the frequent flyer. A key advantage of the card is the convenience it provides when earning miles – there is no conversion needed from points to miles. By comparison, transfers from other credit cards may take more than a month and incur administrative fees of $20-30.

Direct spending on ticket purchases at singaporeair.com and KrisShop earns you double Krisflyer miles for every $1.60 spent.

Cashback credit cards are aplenty in the market, but many of them limit the cashback rebates to certain category of goods, confusing its users with how much cashback they can expect from their credit card spend. So if you are an all-round spender with no special needs for rebates on petrol or grocery, the AMEX True Cashback card simplifies things by giving you 1.5% cashback anytime, anywhere.
Many of the other cashback cards we studied saw a need for minimum spending per month, which force users to accumulate their spending on one card and forgo the benefits of their other credit cards. No such dilemma with the AMEX True Cashback simply because no minimum spending is required!
No minimum spending, no strings attached! May we also remind you that one of the most attractive offers with the card now is the 5% cashback on new application for the first 3 months. This amount is capped at $5,000 worth of spending, but it still gives you a sizeable $75 money back. Card fees are at $171.20 per year with first year fee waiver.
