Credit Card Points Calculator

This calculator is designed to help analyze cashback credit cards and reward points programs. The primary assumptions of this calculator are that you do not carry a balance on the credit card, and that you pay off the balance within the card's no-interest grace period.

If you plan to carry a monthly balance, it's generally more effective to choose a low-interest card, transfer the balance to a line of credit, or to consolidate debt by refinancing your mortgage.

What you can do with this credit card rewards calculator

  • View estimated rewards for usage
    For both cashback and points cards, you can view an estimate of effective rewards dollars accumulated on a yearly basis.
  • Calculate how long it'll take to reach a goal
    Given effective annual rewards dollars, you can calculate how long it will take to reach a goal amount of reward dollars or reward points.
  • Compare rewards program merchandise to market value
    If you have a reward points credit card, you can compare the cost in reward points of merchandise to the market value. This enables you to decide if it's better value to choose gift cards over merchandise.
  • Compare multiple credit cards side-by-side
    Do all of the above while comparing the performance of two separate credit cards.

Points to Market Value Comparison

Credit Card Points to Market Value Comparison

Use this calculator to compare the prices of points programs' merchandise to market prices of the same items from retail outlets. If you find that the points program price is higher than the market price, you may want to consider spending your points on gift or cash cards instead.

Note: If your points program does not have appealing retail gift cards, you may want to consider obtaining gas cards or converting points to air miles instead. You can use the money saved on flights or your vehicle's fuel to purchase merchandise. Learn more.
