One and Done: Consolidate Your Debt
If your mailbox is filling up with mail from a guy named "Bill," it's time to visit the credit union to talk about a consolidation loan. We'll work with you to pay off those high-interest credit cards or other high-rate debt that has accumulated. With a consolidation loan, you will have one payment to make at an interest rate that's fair. Almost always, that means you'll pay less total interest as well as have a lower monthly payment. You can consolidate up to $10,000 worth of debt with Media Members Consolidation Loans for five years with an interest rate as low as 9.9% APR. Instead of constantly revolving debt, why not be sure to pay it off with a closed end loan. You can have a Consolidation Loan in addition to a personal, car or home equity loan. With a Consolidation Loan from the Credit Union, you can get your life back on track to financial freedom.
We'll also give you tips on how to control your spending so that you don't find yourself back in the same situation in the future. For example, we may suggest you put your credit cards on ice - literally - by immersing your plastic in a container of water, then placing the container in the bottom of your freezer. If you really need to use your card, you can dig though the leftovers and thaw it out. But most likely, you'll be better able to resist impulse shopping. With a consolidation loan from the credit union, you can get your life back on the track to financial freedom.
