Kroger REWARDS Mastercard Calculator

Review the benefits of the Kroger REWARDS Mastercard, calculate how many Kroger Points you can earn, and compare it against top grocery rewards cards.
Updated 2020-07-16 By Robert Flowers III

The Kroger REWARDS Mastercard earns Kroger Points on purchases made at Kroger Family Stores along with bonus points when you purchase Kroger brand products from the stores. The card also offers a small discount on fuel purchased from Kroger Family Fuel Stations. While the card itself has a nice earning structure, the value of Kroger Points brings the value of the card down. Unless you're looking to earn a discount at Kroger Family Fuel Stations, there's better credit cards to put your grocery spend on.

Perks & Benefits

There's not much to the Kroger Rewards Mastercard in terms of benefits outside of your basic Mastercard benefits and a fuel discount.

  • Kroger Fuel Discount
    • Save an additional 5 cents per gallon on fuel at Kroger Family of Companies Fuel Center.
  • Cell Phone Protection
  • Mastercard Benefits

Sign Up Bonus

The sign up bonus for the Kroger Rewards Mastercard is a discount on fuel. For the first year of being a cardholder, you will receive an additional 25 cents off per gallon of fuel every time you redeem 100 fuel points. As previously mentioned, fuel benefits for this card are pretty decent and could be worth picking up the card.

Fees

Annual Fee

The Kroger Rewards Mastercard does not have an annual fee. You'll always earn a positive return on spend you run across the card.

Authorized User Fee

There is no fee to add additional users to the Kroger REWARDS Mastercard. If you have family or friends that shop at Kroger Family Brand Stores, I recommend adding them as additional users to help build up points. Adding them can also help save on gas thanks to the discounts offered on the card.

Foreign Transaction Fee

The Kroger REWARDS Mastercard has a 0% foreign transaction fee. While it's great that you will not be penalized for using this card internationally, you'll be earning a return of 0.5% on non-category spend which is horrible. I recommend searching for another credit card if you're looking to earn on international travel and spend.

Rewards Calculator

You can use the rewards calculator to calculate how many points, miles, or cash back you can earn based on your spend per category. This calculator will also give you the dollar value of the card based on the value of the rewards earned and how much each benefit is worth to you, minus the annual fees. You can click the Compare A Card button to compare this card side by side any other card featured on the site within the same calculator.

Note! All category spend entered in the primary card's column (first column when comparing cards) will carry over to all credit card calculators on the site. This means you will not have to re-enter the same information again and again when browsing during the session.
