How to Reduce Your Credit Card Debt Each Month

There are three typical strategies to reduce your credit card debt each month:

  • Understand Your Credit Card Debt
  • Increase Payments
  • Plan a Repayment Strategy

Consider which debt you wish to pay off first before just throwing more money towards any obligation.

You will ultimately save the most money if you use the avalanche technique to prioritize paying down high-interest debt. Nonetheless, other people discover that paying off the least amount of debt initially keeps them motivated, which makes it work better for them.

Snowball Technique
Listing all of your debt amounts and paying them down in order of smallest to largest, depending on whether or not their interest rates are the same, is the snowball repayment approach. This approach starts with the smaller balances and works your way up to the bigger ones. This expedites the settlement of obligations, which increases drive and momentum.

The Avalanche Technique
The goal of the avalanche payment technique is to settle debts according to their interest rates. Interest rates are given priority in this manner, and the debt with the highest interest rate is paid off first. Once the initial loan is paid off, you move on to the next one with the highest interest rate. Over time, this lowers your interest payments.

Credit Card Balance Transfer
Consider a balance transfer and transferring current amounts from many credit cards into a new card with a 0% introductory APR after researching credit card interest rates.

Debt Consolidation Method
A debt consolidation loan with payback schedules if the interest rate is better than the interest rate on the existing debt.
