The Point Calculator website was created in April 0f 2017 due to their being a lack of ways to compare different credit cards side by side to see which is the best option.
When the site was released, it covered 6 loyalty programs:
- Marriott Rewards
- Starwood Preferred Guest
- Hilton Honors
- World of Hyatt
- American Express Membership Rewards
- Delta Air Lines SkyMiles
Fast forward to 2023, and the site now features more than 170 rewards programs between the US, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia.
There's also over 400 credit card calculators across all of these regions, all with fully functional calculators. There's also calculators for converisons between programs, point value based on redemption, earning points, and more.
The goal of the site is to help you calculate how many rewards you can earn, the cash value of those rewards, and the transfer of rewards to partners when applicable.
The goal is also to help users comes up with the best credit cards options based on spend, the value of card benefits, and annual fees.

Considering that most of my time is spent programming and keeping up with the credit card world along with working a full-time job, being a father/husband, etc... I don't post as much as I should. But still feel free to follow me as I "try" to get better!

Card & Calculator Request
If there's a credit card calculator or a type of calculator you're looking for, you can reach out to me via social network or you can email [email protected].
Credit cards from the following regions can be requested:
- United States
- United Kingdom
If you request a card, they must dabble in one of the following currencies:
- United States Dollar (USD)
- Canadian Dollar (CAD)
- Euro (EUR)
- Pounds Sterling (GBP)
- Australia Dollar (AUD)
Assuming the card doesn't require trigonometry and rocket science to calculate the rewards, I should easily be able to add it to the database. Depending on the region, the card may not get it's own personal page, but you'll at least be able to compare it against other cards from the same region as well as calculate rewards via the Credit Card Comparison Tool.
The Point Calculator YouTube Video
If you're looking for a video of some of the things you can do on the site, this video covers a few. Several things have changed since this video was made (in terms of design and more features being added), but it still covers the gist of the site.
That's it for now. Enjoy the website!
