The war is officially on for cashback vs. miles credit cards, and I’m standing up for Team Cashback.

This was originally written for and published on I have edited the article further since. Miles give you access to experiences, but you can go further with cashback The MileLion brings up a fair point that most people probably wouldn’t be willing to spend S$10,000 to buy a First Class seat, but yet be more than happy to claim that with their miles. But here’s my take: That joy is short-lived (and is over in a matter of hours). Cashback brings you further. Just like how I have no desire for branded bags, I similarly don’t need to experience a First Class or Business Class. When I fly, all I care about is the flight is safe, on time and gets me to where I need to be.
