Beware Of Credit Card Interest Rates
Beware of credit card interest rates because they can change after the introductory period of time expires. Many people take the time to find a great rate, but what do you do when that rate exprires. It is very difficult to get a low interest rate that will last for a long time. Most introductory rates will lure you in for a short amount of time, and then the real interest rate kicks in and your bills seem astronomical. Before you take the time to get your credit checked through a credit card company, make sure you know what will happen when the rate changes. A good company will let you know what your balance will be at the changed interest rate before you sign up. They should be able to tell you your new balance and your monthly payment with the new interest rate. They should also let you know how much extra you can pay each month to decrease your principal balance faster. If you are really having a lot of trouble with your debt then you may want to seek some credit counseling. You may also want to try a debt consolidation loan to avoid higher rates.
