Paying your monthly rent to a private landlord in Singapore using your credit card has never been easier, with at least three providers on the scene allowing you to accrue thousands of frequent flyer miles each month on this often major transaction, for a nominal processing fee.

That fee is important of course, because depending on the rate at which your card accrues miles it determines your cost per mile when you accrue this way.
