Program Details

Alliant Credit Union is known for the earning potential of it's one cash back credit card. Do note that you will need to be a member of the Alliant Credit Union to apply for this card. There are several requirements, but the most common ones are:

  • Working for or being retired from one of the credit union's select organizations
  • Being a relative of a member
  • Living or working in a qualifying Chicago-area community
  • Supporting Alliant's partner charity, Foster Care to Success

Redeeming Alliant Cash Back

Cash back earned with Alliant Credit Union can be either credited to your Alliant Credit Card via a credit card statement credit (appearing within one billing cycle) or as a deposit into your Alliant checking or savings. Alliant Credit Union does require you to be a member in order to qualify for any of their banking services including credit cards. You can check your eligibility on the Alliant Credit Union site or donate to their charity to become a member as well.

Credit Card Rewards Calculators

Alliant Credit Union offers one cash back credit card and it is one of the best cards on the market. It offers a whopping unlimited 3% cash back the entire first year along with a waived annual fee. Once the second year rolls around, it earns 2.5% cash back with a relatively manageable annual fee that can earn you more value than 2% cash back cards if you run extremely heavy spend (i.e. all your yearly spend) through the card.

You can click on the Alliant credit card below to learn about the earning structure, perks & benefits, standard sign up bonus, and fees of the card. The card also has it's own Alliant cash back calculator. The calculator will calculate how much cash back you can earn and the cash value of the Alliant credit card based on your monthly/yearly spend, how much each card benefit is worth to you, and the fees of the card. You can compare the results side by side any credit card featured on the site. Any spend you enter into the credit card cash back calculator will carry over to all credit card calculators on the site, so there's no need to re-enter spend when jumping page to page.

Comparison Calculators

Comparison Calculators features side by side comparisons of frequently compared credit cards or comparisons requested through our YouTube channel. These calculators are already set up so you can immediately start calculating total rewards as well as the cash value of the compared cards based on your monthly/yearly spend, how much the card benefits are worth to you, and the annual fees. Comparison Calculators does not allow you to change the designated cards being compared. If you want to compare credit cards outside of the comparisons listed below, I recommend searching for the credit card you want to compare and then using its calculator to compare it against anything featured on the site.
