What Credit Card is recommended for one looking for the best deals with air miles?

I just graduated from college and plan to spend most of one year travelling the world before I settle down to a career path. What credit card would you recommend for me with good benefits and air miles?

    No Name

    I like the HSBC Premier Mastercard Credit Card for its good mile-buying opportunity for 40,000 miles at $488 for HSBC Premier Clients, also the unlimited priority pass for both the principal and supplementary cardholders makes this card worth the fee provided there are supplementary cardholders to share the benefits with and that it will be heavily utilized. Furthermore, the departure airport limo service is a plus point and the meet-and-assist can be helpful at overly crowded airports without Fast-Track/ABTC/Diplomatic lines. Bottom Line, if you are both a HSBC Premier client and a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services, and your supplementary cardholders are too, then this is the card for you( you could consider referring your friends). 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.

    5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and more

    HSBC Premier MasterCard / HSBC Bank Singapore

    For me nothing beats the 5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and transport (that is taxis, ride hailing, trains and buses inclusive), locally and overseas when you spend minimum S$600 per month. And the cash rebate is capped at S$150 per month. So if you don’t drive, not to worry as you can enjoy 5% cash rebate for your transportation needs, be it a taxi ride, a booking made via ride hailing apps, or trains/buses.

    The application process for this card was not stressful as is the case with other cards.

    HSBC Premier MasterCard / HSBC Bank Singapore

    With this card the outstanding highlight will probably be that you can earn one Rewards point for every S$1 charged to your card. In addition, you can also enjoy the exclusive privilege to redeem more rewards with fewer points on selected rewards items. Plus the application process for this card was not stressful as is the case with other cards.
