About This Website and About Me | The Point Calculator

About The Site

The Point Calculator website was created in March of 2017. The site was built on the basis of calculating rewards points earned with different credit cards available on the market. Eventually, the ability to calculate rewards side by side was added as well. While spending time on credit card related message boards, I found the many question to be: "Is card A better than card B". People would give their opinion on why which card was better not knowing whether or not that person would even get the same value. With that in mind, I built this site to help people determine if a card is for them based on their own spend.

Credit Card Calculators

While I do cover how to earn points outside of credit card rewards as well as how to redeem them, the primary purpose of this site will always be credit card rewards calculators. Allowing you to compare cards side-by-side against one another is one of the most important features of the site. There are great pages out there that can help you find the best redemptions for your rewards. My favorites include:

All of those are great sites to stay updated on changes to programs, how to get the best value out of your rewards and much more. I recommend rolling across those sites daily to stay connected with what's going on in the travel world.

If you have questions on a card or want to know how others feel about a card, slide over to the MyFICO Message Boards. The fine people there are always willing to help out. It's also a good place to start if you're new to credit or want to know more about credit scores.

Missing A Card? A Rewards Program?

If your favorite card is missing from the website, you can let me know by emailing [email protected]. Let me know which card(s) you want added to the site and I'll work on getting it added. I might not be able to dedicate a full page to the card immediately, but you'll at least be able to calculate rewards and compare it against other cards featured on the site.

If you don't wish to email, you can always contact me through any of the social media channels listed below.
