Your break even point is basically the points value of your annual fee for Membership Rewards. Using gift cards as an example, 10,000 points can get you a $100 gift card (varies by merchant), so if your annual fee is $90 you’d need to spend $9,000 or more per year on the card to break even, which is pretty easy to do with even a low amount of travel.

@EY1 -- where??
