August 29, 2006 09:00 ET Launches a Rewards Calculator That Gives a Unique Way for Students to Find The Best Credit Card Deal

NEW YORK--(Collegiate Presswire - August 29, 2006) -, a recently launched website dedicated to helping link consumers and businesses with the appropriate credit card for their needs, debuts a new and unique feature called Rewards Calculator. The Students Rewards Calculator provides a no-frills, cut-to-the chase service that clearly states the dollar value of how much the "rewards" add up to. The Calculator is an interactive tool, using mathematical formulas and student spending in various categories, to give students the return in monetary terms.

On the site, more than a dozen leading student credit cards can be analyzed, with more cards being added periodically. While it may seem simple, the special terms and conditions of reward programs including the "points" system, "select" merchants and "up to X %" are all equated to give estimated figures.

Ziv Yirmiyahu, co-founder of, was himself a recent student enrolled at NYU Stern School of Business in their Finance PhD program. Fascinated by the elusive Rewards and Points system, Yirmiyahu set out to clarify these systems in real dollars. "Students and even the average consumer have little idea about how to compare the different complicated and multi-tiered offers being thrown at them. The Rewards Calculator should help credit card users find the best value for them within the reward programs being offered. Depending on the spender's profile, the difference in reward return can be as great as 250%. That's a significant difference for any consumer, and a great one for a student."

The Rewards Calculator at is being offered free without registration. The site provides additional information and easy links to secure online applications for the top featured student cards. Additional features and services already available are a handy "Compare" Tool to help compare critical terms of multiple cards in an efficient and simple table as well as isolated credit card options for your lifestyle needs including "Student", "Business", "Travel Rewards" and "Poor Credit" to name a few. Features to be on the lookout in the near future include Business and Consumer Rewards Calculators, educational videos offering personal finance tips, and a Card Finder to indicate the single best card for their needs and lifestyle.
