Personal Loans

Credit Requirements:

Fair to Excellent

Consolidation Amount:

Up to $35,000

APR Range:

5.99% +

Consolidation Strategy: Take out a personal loan with a lower interest than your current credit card and pay off your credit card debt with the loan. Keep in mind that you will still have a loan to pay just with a lower interest rate, so we would recommend not using credit until you are done paying off your debt.

Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

Credit Requirements:

Poor to Excellent

Consolidation Amount:

$25,000 – $150,000

APR Range:

2.99% +

Consolidation Strategy:Use a home equity line of credit, or HELOC, to pay off your credit card debt in full. Since the HELOC is secured by your house, it will almost certainly give you a lower interest rate than a personal loan. However, if you do not pay back the money borrowed, there is risk for a lien on your home.

0% APR Balance Transfer Credit Cards

Credit Requirements:

Good to Excellent

Consolidation Amount:

APR Range:

0% APR

Consolidation Strategy:Take your current credit card debt and transfer the balance to the longest 0% intro APR credit card possible. Then, make a goal to pay off the balance before the 0% APR period runs out.
