Credit Card Refinancing
Credit Card Refinancing
What is a Credit Card Refinancing Loan?
To answer this question, let us first understand the meaning of ‘Refinancing’. ‘Refinancing’ is basically the process of clearing your debt dues using another loan. It is a smarter way of saving yourself from a huge debt if you know 2 things properly - your budget and the capability to pay back the loan. Now what is Credit Card Refinancing? Having exhausted the credit limit on your credit card and then you are over burdened with the repayment amount that never comes to an end – that is when credit card refinancing comes into picture. To make it simpler, credit card refinancing improves the condition of your pre-existing loan by simplifying the overall interest rates. Now, before you jump to saving yourself from debts by this method, let us throw some light on the benefits and risks that are involved in credit card refinancing.
Who, actually needs Credit Card Refinancing?
Young professionals these days hold multiple credit cards as they believe them to be the quick solutions to their shopping needs. It is their regular practice of swiping those plastic cards at various outlets and keep repaying on a monthly basis. Highly overwhelmed by the amazing offers availed by the credit card companies, these individuals cross the bars of credit limit and land themselves into neck-deep debt load that comes back to get them. In an attempt to pull themselves out of the debt well, they go for a credit card refinancing loan which they find as a justified alternative to improve the condition of their current loan.
Benefits of Credit Card Refinancing Loan
Better interest rates
Taking a Personal Loan to repay a credit card debt is opted only because it offers better interest rates compared to your pre-existing loan. Otherwise, you have landed yourself into another debt trap! Better be careful.
Credit card refinancing loan is nothing but a personal loan which does not require any collaterals to be put up against the loan amount.
Boost your credit score
You can always boost your credit score by choosing this loan over your pre-existing loan and be fairly eligible for another loan in future.
Despite having multiple credit cards, you end up repaying only for a personal loan (or a credit card refinancing loan) instead for different credit cards.
The time required to pay back and complete a credit card refinancing loan would be much lesser compared to repaying different credit cards separately.
Risks involved in Credit Card Refinancing Loan
Check the benefits thoroughly
You must apply for a credit card refinancing loan only if the new interest rates are fairly less than the ones you paid for the current credit card debts. Also check the repayment period, as it is always fixed.
Compare the rates
Be serious enough about comparing the rates of various refinancing loan suppliers in market. Not all of them offer a lower interest rate, you might be asked to pay a higher interest rate compared to the one you are already paying. There is no point going for it if that is the case; better stick to the current loan.
Calculate your repayment amount adequately
Depending on your net monthly income, see how you can pay off with the new interest rates. Take a look at at least 6 bills to get an idea of monthly expenses. Try to pay off the highest amount each month so as to determine the loan tenure very accurately.
Prepayment penalties and fees
You may forget the penalty amount you need to pay for paying off the credit card dues before time. Make sure you clarify that number with your current lender and include that in the new refinancing loan amount.
