The value of points and miles can vary depending on the program and how they are redeemed. Some rewards can be redeemed for a fraction of a cent for one redemption and be worth several cents for another. There's also rewards that have a set value no matter how you redeem them.
This page will give you an idea of how much points and miles are worth on average in different programs and give you a way to calculate the average value based on our valuations or exact value based on the cost of the redemption.
Points & Miles Valuations
The Point Calculator calculates the average value of points and miles by taking the average of a collection of values received for basic redemptions. The values are typically going to be tied to the most common redemption for any given rewards program.
For example, the average value you see listed for airline frequent flyer programs is the average value calculated when redeeming for airfare.
Do note that these values are meant to give you an idea of the value of rewards. You may be able to redeem some rewards for double the value I have listed or maybe you always get half the value because you redeem them in a different manner.
These valuations are based on straightforward, easy redemptions that can be obtained without point transfers.
