BPI Sky Miles Mastercard
Where is BPI Sky Miles Mastercard best used?
Although there are hardly any benefits to getting this card apart from the very low minimum monthly income, it’s still a good card to use for those who want to start traveling early on in their careers.
Avid flyers of Delta or any SkyTeam would probably want to upgrade to the BPI SkyMiles Platinum Mastercard to take advantage of double mile accrual for every Delta Airline Ticket that they buy.
This is one of the best cards that new cardholders can use to learn the ins and outs of accumulating miles.
We suggest that new cardholders use this credit card mainly to build up credit and to experience collecting miles as time goes on.

With a minimum monthly income of PHP15,000.00, BPI Sky Miles Mastercard is the most accessible out of all the credit cards here.
Note that although it’s the most accessible, it’s not our pick for the starter travel credit card, and that’s because the BPI Sky Miles Mastercard is co-branded through the partnership of BPI and Delta Airways.
The miles that you accrue for Delta Airways can be used for all of its partner airlines—those that are part of SkyTeam and a few other partners that they have. The pool from which cardholders can choose from is small, but there are a few gems here and there.
The credit card also has a high point-to-mile ratio of PHP45.00 for 1 air mile, making it quite hard to consistently collect air miles.
They also offer free travel insurance of up to 10,000,000— the specifics can be found on their website.
