Hi everyone! I post on this board and others from time to time and I just wanted to share my good news! Last night, I called my credit card companies to lower my interest rates, as I often do (every few months of so) and I made some more good progress. 2 cards had their rates lowered 4% each! And one lowered the rate almost 1%, which isn't great, but any little but helps, right? I'm so excited! This will help me pay these down faster! Yay!!! I plan to do this again later in the summer too--all of you out there should be doing this, unless your rates are fixed at 0% forever! Seriously, it took me 20 minutes to call all 4 companies and have the rates lowered. I should add up how much I saved myself a month with those few minutes of my time! Good luck with getting out of debt everyone!

An excellent reminder for all of us! I've had success doing this as well - and they're very easy to deal with over the phone. I've had the most success when I've not been near my limits, though!
