How You Can Minimize Interest Charges?

Here are some suggestions to help minimize the interest charges on your credit card:

  • Pay your credit card balance in full each month.

  • If you decide not to pay off your balance in full, try to pay more than the minimum balance due.

  • If you carry a balance from one month to the next, consider a credit card with a lower rate of interest.

  • Understand the interest charges and fees being applied to your credit card account. For example, remember that with cash advances, interest begins to accrue as soon as the cash is advanced, and with credit card issued checks, interest begins to accrue once the check has been cashed.

  • Be aware that the quicker you pay off your outstanding balance, the less interest you'll pay.

  • Consolidate your debt from higher interest cards-like department store cards to a lower interest credit card.

  • Make payments on time. Take advantage of helpful tools like automated payment options and the use of credit card checks.

  • Be a careful buyer and know the cost of using credit cards. Be sure to read the important information in the credit card agreement mailed to you when you receive your credit card.
