Having trouble choosing an air miles credit card in Singapore? These generous welcome offers of bonus miles will help you decide.

When comparing air miles credit cards, most Singaporeans only focus on the miles per dollar (mpd) rate: that is, the number of miles you earn for every dollar spent in Singapore and overseas. While this important, credit cards that offer generous bonus miles upon sign-up can also take you places faster. If you’re still can’t decide on the right card, consider the best bonus miles offers by these credit cards:
