<<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. >>

Hi, GWFair!

I've been very happy for years with the Citibank AA Visa. It's $50/year, and basically it is only for American Airlines, though they do have affiliations with some other carriers. This card also offers other perks for extra miles, but it's pretty much a 1:1 ratio.

They award a r/t domestic ticket for 25k miles, and a caribbean r/t for 30k miles. This works well for me as I do nearly all of my travel on American, especially when I go to Aruba.

It's also very important to me that they are exceedingly helpful, and courteous when it comes time for arranging use of the airmiles. I've never had a problem with getting the flights I've wanted.

Hope this helps,

Tony
