I used to use my notes app and manually type out when I opened each card (for 5/24 status) and also type out which card to use for certain categories. This app puts that all together into an easy to use interface plus has other awesome features such as tracking bonus offers. If I’m ever not sure which card to use I go straight to the app.
Easy to use and very useful!
I found benefits I didn’t even know I had thanks to CardPointers! Saved me $100s for my premium travel cards like Chase Sapphire Reserve and Amex Platinum. Love this app!! If you want to squeeze value from your credit cards you MUST DOWNLOAD THIS APP NOW
I was expecting this app to recommend which card to use for which purchase. Like... use this card when you want extended warranty or this one for groceries. Maybe it does with the paid version. The free version just wants me to apply for more cards. Delete.
I added the 3 cards I currently own. Of them one gives me 2% back on groceries, one 1.5% on all purchases, and one is just 1% on groceries. It told me to use the 3rd card at 1% for grocery purchases. Seems hard to screw up such a simple app.

It is rare to find an application that is so novel, useful, and tastefully designed. The lifetime sub was an instant buy for me. Simply from how quick this app can generate savings. In recent weeks I’ve literally found hundreds of dollars of benefits from my cards - and while that information is probably available on travel/points blogs, they are littered with ads and their own offers. Use the alerts. Check for offers every week or so. Use the app to record once you’ve redeemed and been credited. It’s all there.
I have been struggling to keep up with all the new benefits that the card companies initiated last Spring when we became home bodies. I also realized that I was not able to remember or efficienctly look up card benefits or point maximazing choice of card, despite being very familiar with several blogs, websites and services devoted to points. I was so happy to find this app! I no longer worry that I’m missing out on a great use of cards. I no longer fret about which card to take shopping, or which card to use online, or when I have a deadline or any number of variables that plague us. The app is time consuming to set up if you have a lot of cards, but worth it, if you want to use it to keep track of minimal spend as you acquire cards. But, that said, adding cards is a snap and I’m sure as I add cards and delete old ones, that I will use this app to track all my cards. It is a perfect compliment to other card following sites and services, as none of those put this very necessary info at your fingertips. Lastly, the developer is incredibly available and responsive. So refreshing.
Great concept, but needs more time to mature before it will be ready for power users. The most critical issue is with the search function. Typing in a keyword should bring up cards with that word in the title, but it doesn’t execute well so its hard to find your cards. Other minor issues to address are: 1) Missing cards, even from big issuers (ex. AMEX Clear. I know this is an old card that can no longer be applied for, and I’m probably the only one in the universe that still has it, but it is a valid card in circulation with anyone who did get it). 2) Missing card variants (ex. it has Target Visa, MC, and debit, but does not have the standard Target store credit card). 3) Incorrect data for some cards (ex. Belk is shown as being Visa but it is actually MC). 4) Missing card tiers (ex. Belk has 3 tiers for their cars with different rewards - standard, premier, and elite, but the app only has the standard). 4) The overall interface should be simplified. Having actual images for each card would be the ideal, but just tweaking the look a bit to have a more feel would be a nice improvement. In closing: the app doesn’t currently fit my needs (having 50+ cards) because it is just too time consuming to get set up accurately with the manual editing needed. However, it would be really useful for anyone managing a few of the popular rewards cards or who wants to track their reward bonuses. I recommend giving it a try to see if it works for you. I support indie apps and respect the grind of small developers who spend time and money to get their work out. This app is one to watch, and I’ll be back in 6 months or a year to give it another try.
