Consider your goals for using the cards. If the BofA card is a standard card, consider adding a cash back or other type of rewards card. Many good products are posted about here.
Many posters like the PenFed Cash Rewards card, while others will target another specific type of rewards product.
Go over what you typically charge and then find the product that would suit that need by perusing the great threads here.

If I understand correctly, the BofA card is your father-in-laws card, correct? If so I'd assume you'd like a card that you could acctually use other than in Target. I think if I were you, I'd look at a Cap One. Do you have any baddies on your reports? How many inquiries? What else is on your report other than the AU card?
