Post Best (Miles/Cashback) card for (XXX) payment

In view of the influx of new threads asking the same question over and over again, I am proposing a master thread for all related questions. Please ask your questions in this thread instead of creating a new one, and I will update this top level post as time goes. Also, I will be sharing some 'best xxx cards for yyy transactions', but as some of you may know, I am a miles collector instead of cashback. Therefore my knowledge on cashback cards may be quite limited, and I would appreciate if you guys can contribute on those as well. Cheers!

If you have any suggestions to make the thread easier to read and parse, feel free to let me know!

Crowd sourced spreadsheet for online merchant classifications here

A template for asking questions (suggested, but feel free to use your own):

Aim: miles / cashback
Merchant: can either be specific (eg. Amazon) or general (eg. restaurants)
Currency: SGD / foreign
Mode: online / offline / contactless
