I realise I have been spending more than my maximum cashback limit on the UOB One Card recently. Would it be a good idea to get another miles card as a secondary card?

I recently started travelling more for work related reasons and in the process started to gain Krisflyer miles although in small amounts due to the constant flights. This has inspired the idea of getting a miles card as a secondary card. Do you think this is a good idea?

    In my opinion, I think you can charge your expenses to the company then look into more cash back cards or get a miles card, however If your income is high enough then look into the higher tier cards, that is those with an income of $120,000 and above that offer free lounge access as this will make your travel more comfortable. So if you expect to be spending consistently more than the max cashback limit, then no harm looking for another card to accumulate more point. Good luck!
