The Best Cash Back Credit Card Calculator will find up to 50 credit cards that gives you the best return per $1 spent based on your spend across up to 20 categories. You can use the filter options to perfect your search by toggling banks, card networks, card types and more. You can also specify if the range of annual fees you don't mind paying and whether or not to show the 1st year return for cards that have the annual fee waived or reduced the first year.
Once you hit search and get your list of results, they'll be sorted by Net Return from the best to the least best. You'll get a breakdown of how much each card earns across the categories featured on the card, any annual bonuses that card has, the annual fee, and the return before and after the annual fee is factored in.
