I'm looking to get a new credit with a frequent flyer miles program. I hope to do some traveling and would love to be able to rack up some miles. Anyone have any suggestions on what card company offers the best deal?

AMEX jetblue card

JB isn't going bankrupt and flying is a pleasurable experience with them. Not as pleasurable as in a Honda, but pretty nice.

What airline(s) do you want to be able to cash in your miles on? Is there one you fly on the most often?

The best card is the Starwood AmEx card. It's free the first year and $40 (I think) after that, which is cheaper than most mileage cards. But the real reason to use it is the flexibility- you can transfer (in 5000 point increments) between a whole lot of different airlines or you can keep the points and use them at Starwood hotels, which include Sheraton, Westin, W, etc. And if you transfer 20,000 points at one time you get 25,000 miles, so you are essentially getting a 25% free mileage bonus.

I don't really have a preference. I've had good experiences with JetBlue though.

Ditto. I have the same card and love it.
