Hi Hilary. Just found your website and I find it very helpful. Thank you. We are in the middle of planning a November 2016 honeymoon to Thailand for 2 weeks from Miami. We want to book hotel and flights this month. We would like to take advantage of the $15,000 we plan on spending and hopefully use it towards future international travel. However, since we don't travel that often, I don't know if a travel rewards card is best for us. We have the BoA Travel Rewards and Venture Capital One credit card but wonder if there is a card that we could apply for that would give us greater benefits. We fly domestic twice a year to visit family and once every two years abroad, mainly Europe. I don't consider that frequent travel. What card is best for us? Amex Gold? Barclays Elite? I know you recommend Citi AA Rewards as one of the best Travel cards but I always avoid flying with them because of past bad experiences, but would go for it if you recommend. Any help would be appreciated! If we could get a first class upgrade to future Europe/Asia trip or free hotel stay, or credit towards travel purchase on credit card that would be great. Thank you!
