Tips On Consolidating Credit Card Debt

If you are stuck in credit card debt, there are two ways to consolidate. One is to obtain a debt consolidation loan and the other is to get a zero-interest balance transfer credit card. In this article, let’s discuss how these two strategies can help you manage credit card debt more efficiently.


Apply for a Debt Consolidation Loan

A debt consolidation loan is often a secured loan. Any type of unsecured debt can be consolidated by taking out a loan from a lender. Once you get the funds, it can be used to pay off all balances and instantly put a stop to accumulating debt due to the monthly interest rates and late penalty costs.
Once all balances have been paid off, the borrower is subjected under the consolidation lender’s repayment terms. The repayment period may range from 1 year to 5 years or longer, depending on the amount borrowed.

Since the loan is secured with the borrower’s home property, the lender is given the right to repossess the collateral submitted anytime the borrower defaults with his/her payments. Thus, consolidating debts with a loan must always be done with caution.

Apply for a Balance Transfer Credit Card with 0% APR

Another way to consolidate credit card debt is by applying for a new credit card with a low interest or zero interest rate offer. Usually, the 0% APR is only good for a limited time period which can range from 3 months, 6 months, 12 months or longer. During the zero-interest period, the cardholder can pay off the balances transferred with no additional APR cost.

Thus, if you have existing balances on at least three credit cards with different interest rate charges, imagine how much money you can save by enjoying zero interest. However, you want to make sure that you can finish paying off your entire balances before the introductory period runs out.

The Key to Successful Debt Consolidation

Regardless of which consolidation method you choose: a loan or a balance transfer card, the key to successful debt recovery will depend on your efforts. By making your payments on time and paying attention to your budgeting habits, you should be able to be free from debt through consolidation.
