Card Details & PNC Rewards Calculator
4X Points Per $1

The PNC Points Visa Card is a PNC Points earning credit card offered by PNC Bank. While it earns a good amount of points on every purchase, the value of the points are minimal and only increase in value if you have certain services with them. Even at their max value, it still barely beats out the return of a 1% cash back card. You're better off picking up a 1.5% cash back credit card or sticking with the PNC Cash Rewards Card.

Bonus Categories

The PNC Points Visa Card offers a flat earning rate for all purchases and does not feature any bonus categories. You'll earn an unlimited 4 PNC Points per $1 spent on all purchases ran across the card.

  • 4x All Purchases

With PNC Points have such low value, you're better off with other rewards cards. It's too much of a hassle to get great value out of these points when you can just as easily pick up a 1.5% cash back or 2%+ cash back credit card without jumping through any hoops.
