How to Avoid High Interest Rate Credit Card Charges

Despite recent laws designed to protect the credit card consumer from unfair interest rate changes on credit cards, rate increases are still a normal practice and how lenders make much of their money. There are several steps you can take to avoid paying too much interest and that can mean the difference hundreds to thousands of dollars in savings. It's highly likely that you'll have to incur some type of rate increase with your credit card but, you may be able to mitigate the impact with several of the tips below.

  • Pay attention to your credit card statements. Review the stated interest rate each and every month to make sure you know what's going on. Read any and all rate change documentation you receive.
  • The easiest way to avoid paying more interest and being accessed a larger interest rate on your credit card is to pay off the balance, each month, before the grace period ends. Most credit card issuers give you around 21 days to pay off your new purchases before you'll have to start paying interest on the balance. Interest expenses show up on your statements as a finance charges.
  • If paying off the balance isn't an option you should make bigger payments. The smaller the credit card balance the smaller the accessed interest charges.
  • Avoid making late payments. Credit card companies are allowed to penalize card holders when they aren't making payments on time. They do need to contact you and give you 45 days notice before hiking up your interest rate.
  • Be smart with promotional rates. With any new credit card, always read the fine print to find out if the initial rate is considered promotional, or short term, how long that period is and what your subsequent rate will be.
  • If you've been notified that your interest rate is going up you have a couple of options. You can call your credit card company to attempt to negotiate the rate down. If they won't budge than you can tell them you'll find another company that will. Or you can reject the change. However, that may mean you'll no longer be able to make future purchases on that card but you'll be able to pay off the balance at the current rate - saving you significantly in the long run.

As a credit card customer you need to be proactive with managing how much interest you're being charged. This will mean significant savings to you over the course of one to several years from now. Paying off charges quickly, making timely payments and working with your lender are some of the key methods to keeping interest rates down.
