Reviews are Ryan’s opinion alone. Star ratings are non-scientific, but a general measure encapsulating the initial spending bonus, annual fee, points or miles-awarding structure, and other benefits conferred by the credit card.

The Analysis Chart measures the potential earnings of credit card points and miles based upon $1,000 in hypothetical monthly spending ($12,000, annually) across several categories. Where credit cards confer multipliers for spending, these values are captured by the generic categories or in the Special/Miscellaneous category. See the notes at the bottom of the chart for assumptions or additional information. The Value Per (Point/Mile) calculation is taken from The Points Guy’s valuations at the time of posting (in order to make it easier on Ryan).
