How to pay off credit cards fast

Are you drowning in credit card debt and wondering how to pay off credit cards fast? Have you found there are a lot of people out there with opinions on this matter? From debt negotiation services to debt settlement solutions, you’re likely to come across many companies with “easy” solutions for how to pay off credit cards fast.

The truth is that most of these options don’t work. These for-profit firms will promise to aggressively negotiate with your creditors and get them to accept much less than you owe. But in the process, they’ll charge you significant fees, your credit rating will take a big hit, and there’s no guarantee that their efforts will yield results. Rather than a way to pay off credit cards fast, these firms may actually leave you deeper in debt.

When you want objective advice on how to pay off credit cards fast, look for a nonprofit credit counseling agency like American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC).

Debt management: our best plan for how to pay off credit cards fast.

One of the options that we often recommend for paying off unsecured credit card debt is called a debt management plan. Under this arrangement, rather than paying each of your creditors every month, you’ll make one payment to ACCC instead and we’ll pay your creditors for you. Not only does this leave you with just one easy payment to make each month, but it lets us enter into conversations with your creditors about ways to lower your interest rates and finance charges, and to stop late fees and over-limit fees. For clients who want to know how to pay off credit cards fast, this is usually the best approach. Most people are able to pay off their credit cards within five years or less.
