Just wanted to post a quick update to myself basically keeping track of how well my credit card debt repayment is going.
My Discover card is getting closer and closer to being paid off and I’m starting to get excited at that prospect. It has been too long since I have seen a zero balance on one of my credit cards.
I have $1865 remaining on my Discover Card. Hopefully I can get it paid off by the end of the year. I’ve been making around $600 in payments each month to it so in three months it should be GONE!!!
And then I can celebrate and go buy a brand new 100 inch big screen plasma LCD tv! Don’t even know if they make those yet or if that’s even possible. :o)
After I pay off my Discover card I have a decision to make, I have 2 cards that each have about $10k on them, one with $14k and one with $16k. Since both Bank of America and ATT Universal Card have both treated me badly either by trying to raise my interest rates or lowering my credit line even though I’ve made all my payments on time, I think I want to pay off those two first so they can stop earning so much interest off of me.
I’ll have a couple months to figure that out, first things first, get the Discover Card paid off!
Here’s my balances:
USAA: $10071 – Been using it a little which is why it has not gone down. Slap my hand.
Bank of America: $16759
Total Credit Card debt as of September 2008: $54,154
I’ve paid off $7970 since Feb 2008.
That’s all for now.
