In the table, black numbers represent exact values, grey numbers are estimated values. The estimations of cash value for credit card points include redeeming for store gift cards.

The usage of points and miles is very flexible, the point values are only a rough estimation of their true values, so they are somewhat subjective. Some of the point values are from the Mile and Point Value Series from The Points Guy (TPG). Though some of the airline miles and hotel points can be transferred to each other, the transfer rate is too low to be considered seriously, thus they are not included in our table.
