Wouldn't it be nice to pay-off your credit card debt!
Unfortunately, most Americans find themselves with some type of credit card debt obligation. If you currently have credit card debt, don't feel alone. According to Haver Analytics, the average household carries over $6,400 in credit card debt.
Your situation might feel like you have amassed a financial burden that you won't be able to pay off for a very long time. Adding fuel to that fire is the frustration part of paying large amounts of credit card interest each and every month.
At CompareCards.com, we would like to help ease your heartache and see if your story / passion for becoming debt free can't influence others to pay down their credit card debt.
