Credit Card Debt Consolidation and Debt Relief Programs Gain Steam

National Debt Relief Program Discusses Why Over 2 Million Americans Each Year Seek Out Credit Card Debt Relief and Debt Consolidation Programs

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - December 10, 2010) - Credit card debt relief and debt consolidation programs offer consumers the opportunity to get out of debt the smart way that today does not involve the use of loans and does not require homeownership. Why these programs are picking up steam as a greater number of Americans seek help from these programs is clear: it's the economy.

The US unemployment rate rose to 9.8 percent last month, the highest in seven months, and an indication that the economic slump that was triggered by the September 2008 Wall Street crash has far from run its course. The details of the November jobs report show a U.S. economy that is flat across the board.

Hard-pressed on seemingly all sides today, Americans are taking advantage of credit card debt consolidation and debt relief programs much to their benefit. These programs consist of newer programs which involve the negotiation of debt, loans to consolidate debt, and in extreme cases -- bankruptcy. It's recommended that consumers thoroughly research, consider and weigh their options before deciding on which type of program is a best fit for their debt situation.

Debt Negotiation is an increasingly popular credit card debt relief program that also can be effective with other types of unsecured debt such as that from department store cards and medical bills. Here's how it works: Debt relief and debt consolidation providers negotiate on behalf of the person in debt with their creditors in an effort to reach a compromise settlement of accounts for a reduced amount. The savings incurred can be significant.

"As they confront unprecedented numbers of troubled customers, credit card companies are increasingly doing something they have historically scorned: settling delinquent accounts for substantially less than the amount owed." - New York Times

These types of debt relief programs which involve negotiation as the foundation of their efforts offer an effective and realistic approach towards lowering debt that is both ethical and is a win-win situation for both parties. National Debt Relief offers a free debt evaluation which can be taken advantage of at their website:
