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!

Pleasant Rewards

In my opinion, this card is one of the best cards in the market especially as there are no expiry date to miles earned and an amazing 2 VIP airport lounge access. I love the fact that the card can be used for major big ticket items and to clock mileage. Redemption can be done easily without hassle and customer service staff are very helpful

Fee waivers and No transfe fees

The AMEX Express Singapore Airlines Solitaire PPS Credit Card gives a First Year Fee Waiver for you to enjoy and also for your supplementary card members. In addition there are no transfer fees and all the KrisFlyer miles you can earn are directly transferred automatically to your KrisFlyer account with no transfer fee. I would recommend this card for these few reasons which could really make the difference.
