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!

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

Earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase

If you target to spend on major event tickets and high price items with the plan to split by instalment then this card is for you. However I notice that if you have an existing OCBC saving account, it makes bill payments much more seamless. And aside from being able to split payment into monthly instalments interest free, you can earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase. Only few cards in the market that allow auto convert spending into interest free instalment and still be entitled to 0.5% or 1% cash rebate.

Looking to maximize on the number of priority pass visits and other privileges

If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you. The reduced general mile earn rate is worth the trade-off for the unlimited priority pass memberships, as well as the high number of limo and meet-and-assist services that you can use.
