Is your credit card spending out of control?

Despite the fact that credit card interest rates remain relatively high it seems that more and more people are still using their credit cards to delay the impact of their overall financial situation. Unfortunately more and more people are literally storing up more and more problems for the future and their debts are quickly moving out of control. So what can you do?

While there is no doubt that despite the recent improvement in the UK economy the financial situation for many people in the UK is still dire. However, credit card debt is amongst the most expensive available and if you're able to offset this high cost of credit by using lower cost credit to pay off your credit card debt then you should consider this particular route. Credit card companies are also becoming more and more aggressive as they look to protect their investments and their future income.

If you are at or near the top of your credit card limit there is every chance this will not be increased automatically, as was commonplace only two years ago, and many people are receiving demands for immediate repayment of part or all of their debt. Do not automatically assume that credit card debt will continue forever and a day until you've paid it off because this is not necessarily the case at the moment.
