When you find it hard to control how you spend using your credit card, and consequently having a lot of trouble trying to make repayments, soon you will find yourself drowning in your credit card debt.
Credit card debt has been a big contributor to the increasing overall finance problems in UK. The general public is having a hard time in making repayments due to their overspending tendencies. But trying to reduce their credit card debt has been next to impossible.
Interest Charges on Credit Card
With a big credit card debt and repayments looming, sometimes just the minimum payment is paid, but how can the credit card debt be reduced especially when the interest has also been charged?

Adding to the dilemma is the cost of credit on plastic which can also be expensive, especially that interest rates are about 18% above the base rate.
