Student Loans By The Numbers

I was forwarded this kick Ass graphic by College Scholarships.Org. You have to click over to see it, but here’s my favorite line: “Look for scholarships and grants, or anything that can reduce borrowing. Otherwise you could be drinking PBR well past your P.H.D.” Hah! I happen to love Pabst Blue Ribbon, but yes, very very good advice ;) You can check out the pretty picture here.

Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!

If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!

What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!

PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
