Air Tickets & Hotels

The following cards are generally considered to be good options for buying air tickets and paying for hotels online (as opposed to using your credit card as a guarantee and paying offline at the hotel). However, banks may run certain promotions with certain OTAs (eg Expedia, Agoda) that award bonus miles.

DBS Woman's World Card

Despite the name, men can (and should) apply for this too. 4 miles per dollar for online spending make this one of my favourite cards.
  • Earn 4 mpd on the first $2,000 of online spending each month. Air fare, movie tickets, food delivery, Grab/Uber, bookstores, AirBnB, groceries, inflight Wi-Fi, you name it. For a crowd-sourced listing of what counts as online spend, try referring here
  • Earn 1.2 mpd on all overseas currency spending. Don't worry, if it's online and overseas currency, the 4 mpd takes precedence
  • This is a World Mastercard, so you get to enjoy special privileges like the fourth night free with selected SPG resorts and a US$100 hotel credit among other things
  • If you don't meet the $80,000 income requirement, consider applying for the DBS Woman's Card with a $30,000 income requirement instead
  • DBS Points pool together in a common account, so you'll only ever pay one conversion fee
