I am looking for the best card to get flier miles out of. I pay my account in full and don't am lucky not to carry a balance due. I put everything from my car downpayment to dentist bills to groceries and toothpaste on the card. I did quite well with USAir for a few years, they offer 1:1 miles for dollar charged and a free continental USA/Canada round trip ticket for 25K miles.

Recently I switched to FristUSA because they offered a ticket for 16K miles. Unfortunately after 4 months, I have now discovered that they only offer a 1:1 dollars:miles if you carry an outstanding balance. If I pay in full they only offer a 1:3, or a ticket for 48K in charges.

I'm about to go back to the USAir card. Has anyone heard of a better deal? Does anyone have experience with Diner's Club Card? I hear it is good.

Thanks in advance, GWFair.
