card for domestic travel and occasional flight to Holland
We found our Master Card AAdvantage did not have much choice of flights so we had to travel at inconvenient time and barely got any return on all the $$ we put on card for mainly groceries, moderate amount of office supplies over 4 years when flying domestically. What cards would you recommend for domestic travel once a year and every 2 -3 years to Holland ? We are fine with coach; and clean but cheap motels and rarely eat out.
Peggy you’re probably best off with some kind of cash back card to build up a reserve that you can use to book Y fares with the most flexibility. If you don’t want complexity something like the Barclay’s Arrival plus would be good for the first year sign up bonus or the Citi Double Cash. If you are ok using more than one card then I’d look into bonus categories for AmEx Blue Cash Preferred or Everyday for groceries and the SimplyCash business card for office supplies.

You’re generally not going to get tremendous value for your miles domestically, so the cards Gaurav is mentioning are best for economy domestic flights. The traditional miles would be best for those international trips, so I’d save your AA miles for those.
