Which program should I join?

Jul 14, 2007
Hi all,
I'm new to this traveling around thing and looking to get the most out of it. I foolishly didn't sign up for any frequent flyer program before my last holiday to thailand, but this time I'm going to get something out of it!

I'm heading off to England in about 6 weeks flying Singapore Airlines with a 3 night stop over is Singapore.

Once I get to England the plan is to live and work there for 1-2 years and do a trip to europe or where ever 1-2 times every couple of months.

I'd love to hear which program people think would be the best for me to be a part of.

I'd also like any info you can give me on things like linking credit cards. I pretty much live off my credit card so something that gives me miles for that would be handy.

Any other tips will be gratefully received.

One of the Star Alliance Programs, since you're flying SQ. Probably Lufthansa Miles & More, since you want to be based in Europe.

Best place to ask this would be at flyertalk
