Is a Credit Card Consolidation Loan Right for
You?

Credit card debt can make one’s finances and
life miserable.  For those with considerable credit
card debt, climbing out of the hole can take
years and thousands of dollars worth of interest
costs. If you are looking for a little hope and a
solution to lowering and getting rid of credit card
debt the answer may be a credit card
consolidation loan.

It might sound counter intuitive, but taking out a
new loan to pay off your credit cards does make
financial sense.  The reason being is that a new
credit card consolidation loan is usually not only
at a lower interest rate, but for a fixed period of
time.  Meaning, you can pay off all your credit
cards with one bill, at a lower interest rate and in
a fixed amount of time (e.g. five years).

How Credit Card Consolidation Loans Work

These loans are usually straightforward.  Before
taking out a consolidation loan, take a good look
at your credit cards and your total debt.  For
instance, if you have 3 credit cards all with
interest rates over 15% and a total balance of
$10,000 you will need a consolidation loan of
$10,000 with an interest rate lower than 15% to
ultimately save money and pay off your debt.  
Since most consolidation loans are much lower
than credit card interest rates, you can usually
save over a hundred dollars each month in
interest costs alone (depending on your total
balance).  

Credit card consolidation loans are also easy to
manage.  Instead of paying three credit card bills
simultaneously, you now only have to pay one
single bill.  Other benefits include a fixed term,
meaning a set schedule (3 years, 5 years, etc) so
you know exactly when your debt will be paid off.

Who Can Benefit

The vast majority of individuals paying high
credit card interest rates and having large
balances can easily benefit from a credit card
consolidation loan.  However, you should make
sure that the interest rates on the new loan are
significantly lower than what you are currently
paying.  

It should be noted that once you consolidate
your credit cards under one loan, make sure you
close your accounts or stop using your credit
cards.  With a clear balance any charges on your
credit cards will just put you deeper into debt.  
For those that think they might be tempted to
start charging again, your best bet is to cut up
your credit cards and throw them in the garbage.

Latest Articles:
It is important to get the most you can out of
corner bank or a virtual bank over the Internet.
A good relationship with a bank representative
can help you to keep informed of the best and
latest offerings that they may have for you.

Here are some of them:

Checking accounts: the main criteria you'll use
for whether your checking account is serving
your needs are the fees, the interest rate on
your deposits/balance, and other services
such as easy balance transfer, overdraft
notification and protection, and the like.
Occasionally banks offer lower fees in return
for direct deposit of a paycheck or other funds
into your account.

Savings accounts: criteria are similar to
checking accounts, with more of a premium on
the interest rate. Some offer easier withdrawal
provisions with relatively high rates - look for
these.In a savings and loan bank your
deposits in any account are insured by the
FDIC for up to $250,000. If you have more
money than this to put in a savings/checking
account, then you should open up multiple
accounts. And ideally different accounts in
different banks.

Other bank products:

CDs. These are fixed interest rate products.
They are very conservative, safe products.
They are good investments to be used for
funds you may need in the short or midterm
period and for the portion of your portfolio that
you want low or zero risk.

Borrowing:

Personal Loans - many personal loans may be
tied to collateral such as your home. They are
simply mortgages - these are covered in detail
in the mortgage section.SBA loans - The SBA,
or Small Business Administration, guarantees
loans made for business purposes. The
criteria for these loans, similar to any loan, is
ability of a business through it's current cash
flow to repay the loan. Management capability
and character, equity contribution and
collateral are also considered. These loans
are actually made through commercial banks,
who receive the applications and conduct the
underwriting. The SBA guarantees the loans.
