Yes, credit card calculators work for all types of credit cards, except for charge cards that require full repayment every billing period. As far as a credit card calculator is concerned, it generally makes no difference whether you have a regular credit card, a secured credit card, a store card, or even a gas card.
This will become obvious after a quick look at the credit card calculators themselves, too, as there is no place to input such distinctions. What's more, just think: Would the monthly payments required to pay off a $5,000 balance on a store credit card within 12 months be any different than those needed to pay off a Visa credit card under the same circumstances? Definitely not, assuming the cards have the same APR.
There is, of course, one exception: charge cards. You're not going to be able to calculate the cost of interest or the time it will take you to pay down debt for a card that does not allow you to revolve a balance, after all.
