Credit Card Cash Value Calculators
The main purpose of this site is to calculate how many points, miles, or cash back you can earn with different credit cards. Each credit card page features details on bonus categories, perks & benefits, the sign up bonus, and fees. Each page also features it's own rewards calculator which allows you to specify how much the rewards are worth to you, enter how much you spend in each category, and give a cash value to benefits on the card. The calculator then factors in the annual fee and authorized user fee (if applicable) and gives you the cash value of the card based on how you will use it. You can then compare any card side by side based on the same (or different!) spend to see which card earns you the most rewards and best bang for your buck per $1 spent. Advanced features include factoring in elite status with your favorite hotels or calculating points as if you're transferring them to partners.

Loyalty/Reward Program Calculators
Want to know how much your points and miles are worth when redeemed for reward A? How about reward B, C, and D? We know the best value usually comes from travel redemptions, but we also cover gift cards, donating to charity, statement credits, and those strange redemptions that no one talks about. Because maybe you want to redeem your rewards for a ticket to your favorite Broadway show or save enough miles for a chance to go to space (yes that exists). Your rewards are for you to use and knowing what you can redeem your hard earned rewards for and the cash value you can get for them is important. Learn how to earn rewards, the cash value of those rewards based on redemption, and calculate the transfer of rewards to partners (if applicable). You can click on any of the links below to get a list of programs we cover in that particular category.
