What is Best Credit Card?

I am giving up my Amex Platinum card because they did away with the free domestic companion ticket program. Therefore, I'm in need of a new credit card. Here is some additional info to help analyze the situation. We go to Palm Beach twice a year and usually fly either Jet Blue or Delta. We travel out west to ski three times a year and use Albuquerque, Denver, and Salt Lake City as gateways. Delta, United, or American are the airlines we travel. We use very few hotel nights since we have our timeshares and Destination Club for accommodations. Finally, I always pay the monthly amount in full.

I don't know if I should look for airline miles, money back, or something else. Any thoughts?

I use two cards. Citi-card that gives me 5 miles per dollar at gas stations, grocery stores, and pharmacies. Capital One that gives me 2 miles per dollar for everything else. The Cap 1 card let's me redeem for travel at 15,000 miles for any one item that costs up to $150. Citi-card gives me $50 cash back at 8,000 miles.
