Credit Card Late Fees, Interest Rates and Closed Accounts

Credit Card Late Fees, Interest Rates and Closed Accounts

If you’re trying to payoff credit card debt, and reduce building balances, the best place to start is to figure out how much you owe and what percentage APR or interest rate you have. Once you know, you can begin calling your credit card companies to ASK them to lower your interest rate. Be sure to call when you’re feeling strong and confident, so that you’re less susceptible to intimidation.

Even if your credit score is low — CALL and ASK. It never hurts to ask. If you don’t ask, the answer is no anyway. Right?

If you’re successful in transferring a balance to a ZERO percent interest rate, be careful not to pretend you’ve solved your debt problem. You still have the debt, and it still needs to be PAID OFF. Continue to throw as much extra money at it as you can, and pay them off as fast as possible. Stay mad at it. Stay committed to reaching your goals of a debt free life. You can do it!

If you’re calling to cancel your credit card, be ready to be patient and possibly to defend your decision by repeating your request several times. “Yes, please, I’d like to close my account, thank you.” You’ll likely be bounced around to different people. They’re hoping you’ll get frustrated and hang up or lose your nerve. Don’t let them convince you that you NEED them. All you need is to be debt free so that you’re free to build wealth. Credit Cards will not help you reach that goal.

Payoff your credit cards from smallest to largest. The math on this may not seam logical, but it will help keep you motivated by giving you quick wins. It’s inspiring to pay off credit card balances. It’ll boost your confidence and make you feel empowered. You go girl (or boy!).
