American Express is a CardRatings.com advertiser.
There are a number of other cards available and you may find one that suits your needs even more. Chase, Penfed, American Express and others offer sky miles. Some even offer up to five times the miles per dollar spent. On the other hand, some other cards have a credit score requirement of "good" rather than "excellent." But on these latter cards you will find annual fees or higher APR. Another thing to be aware of; some cards offer more miles for particular airlines, so if you have an airline of choice that may be of interest to you. You simply have to pick and choose based upon your qualifications and card use goals.
If you plan on transferring a balance, check the fee and balance transfer APR. Also don't allow an introductory offer to be the sole reason for your choice of card.
