The Answer

Dear Joseph,

The quickest way to get out of credit card debt is to pay it off with an unexpected windfall of money.

Outside of that it’s avoiding the addiction to minimum payment crack and consistently sending significantly more than the minimum payment each moth to pay the debt off as quickly as possible.

THe minimum payment is not designed to get you out of debt. It is designed to maximize the profit made by the creditor.

If you have good credit then you may want to consider a solution like LendingClub.com to get an unsecured fixed rate debt consolidation loan that will allow you to repay your debt within three years.

Big Hug!
