Credit Card Debt Consolidation Demystified

With Consumers and Businesses Continuing to Cope With the Fallout From an Economy in Recession, Consumer Advocate Total Debt Relief Explains Credit Card Debt Consolidation and Other Credit Card Debt Relief Measures

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2010) - Credit card debt, and plenty of it, is not uncommon these days. The U.S. has been battered by the global recession. Millions of jobs have been lost, and credit has become tighter than a girdle. In these times, it's also not uncommon for spouses and significant others to hide credit card debt from the ones they love. Therefore, the interest in credit card debt consolidation and other credit card relief programs is high.

When credit card debt begins to spiral out of control, it's best to face the problem head-on. Doing nothing, pretending the problem doesn't exist, or hiding the problem only makes matters worse. It is recommended that those in debt research the various debt relief programs which exist and then take action.

What is credit card debt consolidation? Quite simply, credit card debt consolidation is the consolidating or combining of multiple credit card debts onto a single card. This can be done for reasons of obtaining a single, common rate, a fixed interest rate, a lower interest rate, or the convenience of managing only one monthly credit card bill each month.

Credit card debt consolidation is a long-established credit card debt relief program that, by name, is widely known. Another, newer credit card debt relief program that is proving extremely useful these days is known as credit card Debt Settlement. Here's how it works:

In a debt settlement program, a debt management firm will negotiate on behalf of the consumer or business in debt with their credit card companies in order to achieve a mutually agreed upon settlement for a reduced amount of the original debt owed. In most cases, in a typical debt settlement, outstanding credit card debt is eliminated by up to 50 percent or more. This eliminated debt is essentially written off and never needs to be repaid.
