The Milelion Directory has been updated for July

Hello everyone

The Milelion Directory has been updated for July. Exciting times afoot, as Mileslife launched in Singapore,  Citibank offered an insane miles buying bonus for existing Premiermiles Visa cardmembers, and DBS announces how it will replace the ANZ card portfolio. Also have a read of my take on the need for proper sponsored post disclosure. 

You can always find the latest edition of the Milelion Directory here.

Happy reading!

The Milelion’s Credit Card Guide

Apart from speedo photos of The Milelion, an updated version of The Milelion’s credit card guide is one of the most requested features that readers have.

I’ve always been hesitant to do this for three reasons

  1. The miles game is dynamic, and the “best” solution can change frequently as banks launch new promotions, update T&Cs etc. Publishing a static, hardcoded guide is a surefire way to get people confused
  2. The “best” solution might not always be the optimal solution. Someone who only dines out occasionally might want to forgo getting a dedicated dining card and focus on using their general spending card for dining (even though that’s not the “right” card to use) so as to avoid orphan points
  3. I have absolutely no design skillz, and was hoping some bank/comparison site/sugar mummy would come along and offer to handle the design side of things, while paying me a buttload of money for branding rights.

Since (3) hasn’t happened, I’m going to bite the bullet and just create a simple page that tracks which cards have bonus miles earning in which categories.

What card do I use for…

This doesn’t amount to a guide as such, as you may want to pick a best-of-breed strategy or go with cards from one bank only, depending on how much you spend per month. But hopefully it’ll be a good place to start.
