Tip #3:  Ask for Your Interest Rates to Be Lowered!

If you have good credit and a good standing with your credit card company then you may be able to qualify for a lower interest rate.  All you have to do is call up your credit card company and ask if you are eligible to receive a lower interest rate.  I have personally used this technique in the past.  My credit card company lowered my interest rate from a 14.99% fixed APR to a 9.99% fixed APR just because I called and made the request!

 Now, if you have made late payments to your credit card company in the past couple of years you probably will not able to receive a lower rate.  If you have late payments or other issues on your credit report our staff can help you.  Give us a call at 704-503-3669 for more information about how HOPE can help you to overcome your credit problems.   We are waiting for your call.
