Which Miles & Points Should You Collect for Award Flights?

Million Mile Secrets reader Alex writes:

I was wondering if you can give me advice on choosing the right credit card.  I already have a Miles & More (Lufthansa) account and ~30,000 miles or so in there.

I’m located in Miami and I try to stick to Lufthansa or Star Alliance partners as my preferred airlines.  I fly at least 2 times a year to Europe or Asia but also make some trips within the US.

Great question, Alex!  It can be hard to decide which miles & points to collect for your trip, especially if you’re new to our hobby.
