Debt Consolidation Credit Card – Highest Rated?
Deciding between a balance transfer credit card and a debt consolidation loan depends on the terms you get, the repayment plan, and your comfort with risk. A balance transfer credit card is a great option if you can get a 0% introductory APR, AND you can pay off the balance before the period expires. A debt consolidation loan might be better if you need a more extended period to pay off the debt.
So, when thinking about debt consolidation, you need to think about these things:
1. Are you just kicking debt down the road? Meaning ae you paying off debt by taking out more debt? You have to lower your spending and be committed to not accruing more debt as you work on paying off
2. If you have a low credit score, you probably won't be able to get a lower interest rate on the balance transfer or debt consolidation loan. So, first focus on making on-time payments, paying off debt, and increasing your credit score.
3. make sure you have a budget and have found a way for that budget to work successfully in your life.
Now, of course, I always recommend paying off your debt by buckling down, controlling your spending, and learning about why you are debt in the first place. Addressing and understanding why you go into
debt is critical if you want to make changes to stay out of debt in the future.
That said, when you are facing financial hardship, sometimes debt consolidation can help when you have high-interest debt that is not manageable.
