What specifically are your needs/goals?

-You spend a lot on travel and want a card that gives good returns on that spend?
-You spend little on travel and much more on everyday items (groceries, gas, etc) and want to save your earnings for future travel?
-You want a card that gives you good insurance (travel medical, flight cancellation, etc) when you travel?

American Express Gold charge card is a good all-rounder. 2 points on grocery/gas/travel/pharmacy, 1 point on all other. Points can be transferred to many airline programs including Aeroplan. The insurance is a little lacking, though. $150/year.
