Points vs Cash? Use our calculator to decide

Note: This calculator bases its decision on MMS points and miles valuations. After years and years of award travel, we have estimated the value of all the major points currencies (these are our values — card issuers don’t place a value on these points). The calculator will assess whether or not your redemption falls below the lowest acceptable value.
