How to pay off large credit card debt
Unlike other financial products which promise to help you pay off large credit card debts, a debt consolidation loan can act as a lifeline for those struggling with unmanageable credit card debt.

How to pay off £3,000 in credit card debt fast
This can be achieved in a number of ways – e.g. you could make a higher-than-minimum payment each month, transfer the balance to a credit card which has 0% introductory APR or use cash from a savings account. However, by consolidating all your loans, you can pay off your debt a lot faster.
How to pay off £6,000 in credit card debt
If you owe £6,000 on a card with 15% APR, your issuer will probably ask for 2% of the balance as a minimum payment.

Accumulating £50,000 in debt is not impossible and many people end up in this predicament. In a worst-case scenario, you could file for bankruptcy. Alternatively, you could come up with a debt management plan on your own. Best yet, save yourself the trouble and opt for a consolidation loan.
Debt snowball vs. debt avalanche
The debt snowball method may work well if there are several small debts to be paid off, or if you need to pay off a lot of debt in general. The debt avalanche method will help you pay lower interest and get you debt-free perhaps a little faster.
What is the debt snowball method
With the debt snowball, you pay off your debts in order – i.e. from the smallest balance to the largest one:
- Make a minimum payment on all accounts
- Put all your extra money into the account with the smallest balance
- After paying off the smallest debt, take the remaining money and funnel it toward the next smallest debt. Repeat until all debts are paid off.
How to make a debt snowball chart
- Gather all your debt (not including mortgage)
- Make a list (smallest to largest debts)
- Make minimum payments on all debts except for the smallest
- Find extra money wherever possible (garage sale, side job, etc.)
- Put the extra money towards the smallest debt
- Once the smallest debt is done with, roll over the payment to the next debt
- Repeat until all debts are done with!
How to snowball debt payments
Consider the following debts: auto loan (£15,000, 4.5% APR); credit card (£7,000, 22% APR); student loan (£25,000, APR 5.5%); personal loan (£5,000, APR 10%).
Using the snowball debt payment method, you’ll pay off your accounts in the following order:
- Personal loan – £5,000
- Credit card – £7,000
- Auto loan – £15,000
- Student loan – £25,000
Does the debt snowball method work?
While the ‘math’ says it works, but it takes longer and costs more than most debt-relief options, including debt consolidation loans.
How to calculate debt snowball
Let’s assume the following debts:
- £500 on medical bills
- £2,500 on credit card debts
- £7,000 on car loans
- £10,000 student loan
Using the debt snowball system, you would make the following minimum payments:
- £50 on medical bills
- £63 on credit card debt
- £135 on a car loan
- £96 on student loan
However, you will not be making a minimum payment on medical bills. Now, assuming you made an extra £500 every month due to savings or a side job, you’re now paying £550 on medical bills (£50 as well as the extra £500) – you’re debt will be gone in probably a month.
Now you can take your ‘freed-up’ £500 and get to the credit card debt. You’ve now paid £613 altogether – i.e. £550 + the minimum payment of £63. So, in approximately 4 months, you won’t have any credit card debt to worry about.
Let’s take care of that car loan – £748 per month to be precise. In 10 months or so, it’ll be a thing of the past. By the time we get to our student loan, our biggest debt, we can dedicate £844 per month toward it; in 12 months, that’ll be out of your hair too.
You’ve managed to do away with £20,000 in debt in just 27 months – you’re a rock star!
Avalanche method to pay off debt
Sometimes referred to as “debt stacking”, this method sees paying off your accounts in descending order – from the highest interest rate to the lowest:
- Make a minimum payment on all accounts
- Put in all the extra money you can towards the highest interest rate account
- After you pay off the highest interest rate debt, pay as much as possible on the next highest interest rate account.
Each time an account is paid off, you’ll have some extra cash every month to contribute towards the next debt.
Avalanche debt reduction
Much like an avalanche, you will start to see your debt reduce after a while. You’ll eventually gain momentum – your debts along with the interest you pay on them will get smaller and dissipate like a downward-moving sheet of snow.
Avalanche debt reduction spreadsheet
A spreadsheet helps you order your debts from the highest interest rate to the lowest. With the main focus being your interest rate and minimum payments, ending up with a negative number after subtracting income from expenses, for example, means you need to find areas in your budget where you can potentially save.
How to pay off debt on a tight budget and save money
There are many ways to save money when you’re on a tight budget – switching to cash for daily expenses, cutting back on major expenses, and re-assessing your food bill. As for paying off debt, one of the best ways to do it is through a consolidation debt loan.
