Best Cashback/Miles Cards to Use For Public Transportation (SimplyGo)

Update 18/07/2021: New updated article here.

Can you believe it’s been more than a month since Phase 2 started? For those lucky ones who still work from home, I hate you, and for the rest of us poor saps who have to spend time and money to travel to work, here are the cards you should use to maximise your card rewards.

Sorry miles people, but cashback cards handily beat mile cards when it comes to public transport. The earn rates are high at between 5 to 8% cashback, while miles offer at best 3.2 mpd (4 mpd if you’re lucky enough to be a lady).
