History has always had its great rivalries – iOS vs Android, Federer vs Nadal, Liverpool FC vs Manchester United.

Air Miles vs Cash Back.

The two warring camps – championed by The MileLion and Budget Babe respectively – have long been at loggerheads over which offers better value. While those on #TeamAirMiles will say that they are about playing the long game, those on #TeamCashBack argue that cashback pays you interest while miles lose value over time.
