Welcome to The Point Calculator's Credit Card Comparison Tool!

This tool allows you to build your own combination of credit cards and calculate the value of them based on your spend, how much you value the card benefits, and annual fees.

You can choose to calculate rewards for one combination or build two combinations and compare the results side by side to find out which works best for you.

If you're trying to come up with the best combination of cards or you want to estimate how much value you're getting out of the cards in your wallet, the Credit Card Comparison Tool will do the job.

Don't Know Which Cards To Compare?

If you're don't have any credit cards in mind to compare, you can check out the lists below to see our top picks for the best credit cards by category.

You can also use our popular Credit Card Finder which will give you a list of the best credit cards based on your spend or use CreditCard.com's CardMatch Tool to be matched with credit cards based on your credit profile.

Requests

If there's a card missing from the calculator that you want added, send the name of the card(s) to [email protected] or via Facebook or Twitter.

If it's a simple structured card, I should easily be able to add it to the database. Cards with complicated structures or rotating categories don't make for the easiest calculations, so keep in mind that some cards cannot be added.

The Credit Card Comparison Tool is specific to the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. I'm open to requests for cards that earn United States Dollar (USD), Canadian Dollar (CAD), Australian Dollar (AUD), Euro (EUR), and Pound Sterling (GBP).
