Are You Only Making Minimum Repayments on Your Credit Card Debt?
How Much is Your Credit Card Debt Costing You?
Making minimum repayments on your credit card means you’re just paying off the interest which doesn’t make a dent in your actual balance. Use our Credit Card Calculator to see how much your credit card debt is costing you in interest.

Make Higher Repayments
Repaying just the minimum on your credit card will mean you’ll only ever pay back the interest, not the actual balance. Pay off extra every month by rounding up your repayment or splitting your repayments from monthly to fortnightly.
Consider a Balance Transfer
If you have a credit card with a high interest rate, you may be able to transfer the balance on to a low rate balance transfer credit card. Many banks offer balance transfer deals, with rates as low as 0% for up to 12 months.
Choose a Low Rate Card
By comparing your credit card interest rate to those available on the market, you may find you can achieve a lower interest rate. Unless you’re on a super low rate already, changing your credit card can save you thousands in interest.
Consolidate Your Debt
By consolidating your credit card debt into a personal loan or your mortgage, you eliminate high interest rates and multiple payments. Instead, you will have just one repayment and one fixed, potentially lower interest rate.
