Where Can I Go to Payoff My Credit Card With a Cheap Loan? – Sarah

“Dear Steve,

I have completely paid off my minor credit cards. My visa, with a close to $8,000 balance remains. My interest rate is so high, it seems my payments aren’t moving the balance at all. I want to do a balance transfer to a lower interest rate, but I do not know where I should go for that. My intention from this point on, is to pay large amounts at a time.

What are your suggestions?

Sarah”

Dear Sarah,

I think the days of confident balance transfer have sailed. Even if you did a balance transfer I strongly suspect that creditors will raise your rate way up latter, and you know why, because they can.

I’ve really been impressed with LendingClub.com as a way for people to pay off higher interest rate debt. Your loan would be funded by hundreds of individual lenders, like me, who would all be willing to take a slight risk on you. LendingClub would then fund your loan, wire the money into your account and you could pay off your higher interest rate credit card.

I’m getting ready to invest more money into my LendingClub account so if you do decide to request a loan through LendingClub,

You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
