Advantages of a debt consolidation loan
Debt consolidation loans can be a good idea for many consumers, saving you money on interest and monthly payments, and potentially increasing your credit score!
Interest savings: If you have multiple sources of debt with high annual percentage rates, you can save on total interest if you get a debt consolidation loan with a lower rate.
Lower monthly payment: A debt consolidation loan can help you avoid missed payments and defaulting on issuer agreements, even if you need to choose a longer term length. With a debt consolidation loan that lowers your monthly payments, but not your interest, you will pay more in total but have payments that are easier to handle. That way, you’re less likely to be subject to additional fees and penalty APRs that come with missing a payment.
Improved credit score: Your credit score may increase with a debt consolidation loan. By taking out a new loan and leaving consolidated accounts open but unused, you will have more total credit available. This results in a lower credit utilization rate, which can increase your credit score.
