    Current line-up depending on spend categories:
    1. Citi Prestige - Shopping, dining (when DCP is not accepted), and overseas
    2. Citi Premier Miles - Everything else that doesn't have multipliers
    3. Diners Club Premiere - Dining, multiplier promos
    4. AmEx Platinum - Multiplier promos

    Ang ayaw ko sa HSBC Plat, napaka-complicated ng points earning and may limit pa. Will actually cancel mine soon.
    Nice line up. Kaso mataas si citi forex so no for overseas. Pang lounge lang 😂

    Sino suki ng delta? Di ko ma-gets paano makakakuha ng flight (anywhere) na pasok sa points ko.
    Tapos may nakita ako (test search), economy to Singapore may +250$? Joke ba yun? :lol:
    Sorry first time sa delta.

    Sayang lang pangit ng miles program nila.
    Hindi ko rin gusto earn rate ng Mabuhay Miles ng PNB, pero ang hirap na makahanap ngayon ng credit card na pangolekta ng Mabuhay Miles.

    Citibank Premiermiles: Wala na, tinanggal na ang Mabuhay Miles.

    Metrobank Travel Plat: P17/MM, pero limited sa foreign spend, hotels, at airlines lang. Tapos tataga-in ka pa sa 3.5% fee sa foreign spend.

    UnionBank Miles + Platinum: P17/MM din sa foreign spend, hotels, at airlines lang. Acceptable naman ang 2% FX fee pero walang kalutay-lutay ang mga promos at customer service. Good luck din sa pag-waive ng annual fee. Ok siguro 'to kung makuha mo na FAFFL.

    Diners Club: P30/Mabuhay Mile nga, pero good luck sa paghanap ng tatanggap lalo na kung wala ka sa siyudad. Kahit online o kay green rider at tweety bird, halos walang tumatanggap neto.

    HSBC Platinum: P40/MM, pero limited sa foreign spend, dining, at department store/boutique shopping. Ang taas din ng 3.5% FX fee.

    Alam ko P40/MM din yung mga cards gaya ng EastWest Priority Visa Infinite, pero nakapa-rare Pokemon naman nung mga cards na yun. Halos ayaw ipamigay.

    Para sa ordinaryong tao na ang bulk ng spending ay nasa supermarket, gas, at bills, pinaka-reasonable na rate na yung P50/Mabuhay Mile ng Metrobank Travel Plat, UnionBank Miles + Platinum, at ng BPI Visa Signature.

    Hindi na masyado nagkakalayo sa PNB Mabuhay Miles credit cards na P55-60/MM ang earn rate ng platinum at world.

    Exactly my point.

    Kung gagamitin mo ang tweety bird para sa Mabuhay Miles, ang option mo lang e Metrobank Plat/World at UnionBank Miles + Platinum na P50/mile. Hindi naman tinatanggap ang Diners (wala na rin ang BPI). Hindi rin naman bonus category ang cash-in.

    Dahil P50/mile yung mga cards na yun, hindi na rin ganun kapangit pakinggan yung P55-60/mile earn rate ng PNB Mabuhay Miles credit cards.

    Why settle for mabuhay miles, where other card offer international ffp? Might be asiamiles or krisflyer with way better than peso to mile of mm.

    Is EastWest Bank Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Mastercard World is worth it?

    Kung madalas ka sa Singapore at okay lang sayo i-limit sa Krisflyer member airlines ang miles accumulation mo, pwede sayo yan. Most likely may mga travel related perks pa na iba yan na kung swak sa needs mo eh malamang sulit yan even if mahal ang AMF.

    For me, AMEX Platinum pa rin ang best dahil na rin sa magandang forex rates at perks. Yung iba dito, Citibank Premiere Miles daw mas ok for miles accumulation at lounge access. May iba naman masaya na sa getgo with UB. It's up to you basta match the perks vs your needs. Different folks, different strokes.

    Sorry leonard di ako Platinum card holder kay BDO but may experience naman ako sa travel. I rarely use a MasterCard outside the country kasi talo ako sa rates.

    As regards airport lounge access, alam ko di rin maganda ang MasterCard kasi may bayad (A Usage Fee of US$27 per use of the lounge, per person applies). Not familiar din with their miles accumulation. Basta alam ko the best si AMEX based sa mga recommendation at personal experience ng members dito sa PEX.

    Calling @strong, gibson, cps at iba pang mas magaling sa travel cards. Baka mas maliwanagan nyo si leonard sa platinum MC ni BDO.

    No comment for Maybank CC. I am not their cardholder e. Visit their website na lang and compare. Manimbang ka na lang.
