The Point Calculator website was designed to help you calculate reward points, frequent flyer miles, and cash back for various credit cards and reward programs based off your spend. These calculators also provide a cash value for each reward card based off the amount of points earned from your spend and how much each perk and benefit is worth to you. You can use this value to compare the many different cards this site covers. These credit card reward calculators will provide you with an idea of how valuable certain loyalty programs and/or their credit cards are for you. If you own one credit card or several credit cards, this site can assist you in making sure you're getting the most out of your rewards.
The calculators on this site will calculate the cash value of various reward points and credit cards based on how much each point or mile is worth. The point values that I use for the calculators on this site are based off the average redemption cost of what the points are meant to be used for. If you're redeeming frequent flyer miles, the value of the miles will reflect the average cost based on flight redemptions. If you're redeeming hotel reward points, my point worth will reflect the average cost of those points when you redeem them for hotel stays. I keep the calculations simple and don't want to have all my point and mile values be based off redemptions that not everyone visiting will care about. This site is not here to tell you that you have to use your points and miles for travel only. While I will still make suggestions and provide tips on the best way to use rewards, in the end... they're your rewards to use and you should be able to use them anyway you like!
The good thing about the calculators on this site is that they're customizable. If you want to bump up the value of Hilton Honor Points from 0.6 cents each to 1 cent each, then you can do that and the calculator will immediately reflect that change. I'll generally provide values in which are higher than the norm, but this site is meant more for calculating and comparing reward programs and credit cards. If you want to know the best ways to use certain types of points and miles, you can check out The Points Guy Monthly Valuations in which he gives you an idea of how much certain points are worth to him. Once you figure out how much you value a certain point or mile, plug it into our calculator(s) and find the best reward card for your spend!
