Lower credit card debt

How to lower credit card debt.

When you want to lower credit card debt, there are lots of ways to approach it and an endless amount of credit card debt advice you’ll find online. There are companies who will offer to help you lower credit card debt through debt forgiveness arrangements, and others who will peddle credit card consolidation loans. There are debt settlement plans that seek to lower credit card debt through aggressive negotiation, and plenty of credit card companies offering balance transfer arrangements.

The problem with many of these plans, however, is that they’ll either severely damage your credit rating or require you to take on new debt to pay off old debt, leaving you in a perpetual cycle of owing money. If don’t want to incur new debt and want to increase your credit rating over the next five years, consider contacting the credit counseling professionals at American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC), who can work with you to lower credit card debt.
