    Here in Canada, we still have to pay the taxes and fees on the flights but at least it's better then paying full price. We used our points for this upcoming trip to Aruba. One good thing about our card is that there are no black out dates and we can fly on any airline.

    We use the Capitol 1 Venture business card. We always get reimbursed 100% for travel charged to the card with their posts. It works out great for us.

    I have followed the Points Guy and OMAAT for years. Both offer great points and air travel advice and reviews. DW and I have had the AA Master Card for several years now, it has good benefits for the yearly fee. We use it for almost everything, pay it off monthly and score a ton of miles. DD56, I don't know why you have such a dislike for AA. Believe me, I fly with them often (last flight was this past Thursday) and think they have pretty good service and even the food is good. When booking a flight using miles, flexibility is key. I don't expect to set my dates, times, and locations for the least amount of miles possible every time. Most recently I booked two non stop, round trip, first class flights to NYC for 60,000 miles. That's only 30,000 miles per person. I think that's a pretty good deal. But this forum is about everyone having their own opinions. That said, I don't care for Fiats.

    We also use the Capitol One card and have had great success using it to pay for travel expenses. I just got the SWA card, since we booked SW flights this year.

    Like Andrea I like my SWA... all my return trips home are basically free. (weird I have to "pay" to go to my favorite island... but they pay to send me home)

    I've had the AA Master Card for year. Years ago I went on a Mexican Riviera Cruise out of Los Angeles and I was able to score 2 1st class tickets on American Airlines from NY to LAX. Earlier this year in March I used miles for 2 first class tickets to Puerto Rico which came out to 60,000 miles. The taxes were $5.00 each. I thought with Capitol One Card you can use the card with any airline?
