3 Air Miles Credit Cards with the Most Bonus Miles

air miles cards with the most bonus miles

Having trouble choosing an air miles credit card in Singapore? These generous welcome offers will help you decide.

Credit card promotions, terms, and conditions valid as of 11 July 2016.

When comparing air Miles credit cards, most Singaporeans only focus on the base miles – that is, the number of miles you earn for every dollar spent in Singapore and overseas.

While these are certainly worth noting, pay attention to welcome gifts or renewal bonuses too. You can go places faster with the right offer. 

So if you’re still can’t decide on the right card, consider the bonus miles offered by these:

Citi PremierMiles Visa Card: Up to 52,000 Miles

Currently, the Citi PremierMiles Visa Card offers the most bonus miles if you spend wisely during the first three months.

First, you need to apply for the card between before the promotion ends on 14 August 2016. Then you get a welcome bonus of 15,000 Citi miles just by using the credit card within the first 3 months.

Spend a total of S$10,000 during those first 3 months to get another 15,000 Citi miles. And with the S$10,000 spend, you earn another 12,000 from the base miles rate of 1.2 miles per S$1 spent locally.

Annual fees are waived for the first year, but should you decide to renew your card, you get 10,000 more miles after paying the annual fee. All in all, this adds up to 52,000 miles.

Miles earned when you apply and spend any amount within the first 3 months 15,000 miles
When you spend a total of S$10,000 within the first 3 months 15,000 miles
Earned on your spend of S$10,000 based on 1.2 per S$1 spent locally 12,000 miles
Bonus miles earned when you renew your card 10,000 miles
Total Bonus Miles 52,000 miles

Even if you don’t spend S$10,000 in three months, the 15,000 miles you earn from your first swipe gives you a leg up in the miles game.
