* For cards with reward programs that allow you to earn points, unless otherwise noted, the best case scenario of everyday spending is used when calculating the spend required to earn a reward. Everyday spending does not include bonus points that may be earned by shopping with loyalty partners. For rewards programs that have monthly caps, we assume you stay under that cap and for products with two cards, we assume spending is with the highest earning card. For programs that allow you to convert points for air travel at a price that changes from day to day, we have assumed that the flight is $300 (taxes and charges inclusive).
