Combine Multiple High-Interest Debts Into A Single Payment
A debt consolidation loan is a type of personal loan that enables you to combine multiple high-interest debts into a single loan with a single monthly payment. This can help you to save money on interest and pay off your debt more quickly. How?
- The higher your interest rate, the more you pay over the life of your loan, making it difficult to get out of debt.
- The less you pay in interest, the more you may be able to pay towards your balance, and the faster you’ll be out of debt.
Debt consolidation is useful for managing any of your debts that have high interest rates or fees. Some of these debt types include credit cards, store cards, unpaid medical bills, payday loans and title loans.
Sometimes it's not just how much you owe, but how many creditors you need to pay. Consolidating multiple payments into one monthly payment can save time and reduce the risk of late payments.

Consolidating debt is a tool you can use to help pay off your balances, but it may not be the right tool for everyone — especially when it comes to credit card debt.
If you have a history of overspending, you may quickly find yourself in an even worse financial situation than you were before you consolidated your debts. This is because consolidating debts does not address the underlying issue of overspending. It simply means that you are now paying one larger debt instead of multiple smaller debts. If you do not change your spending habits, you will eventually end up in the same or worse financial situation than you were before. People in this situation often return to carrying a balance on their credit cards within months of paying them off, meaning they now owe the consolidation loan and the new debt.
To help avoid this, make yourself a realistic budget and stick to it. You should also start building an emergency fund that can be used to pay for financial surprises so you don’t have to rely on credit cards.
