Declutter Your Wallet In The New Year!


If you’ve made the New Year’s resolution to declutter your life, why not do the same with your finances? Paying off debt and saving can be difficult when you have multiple cards that have high, variable interest rates. Cedar Point has a low, fixed-rate credit card that could help you reach your financial goals faster. Transfer your balances to a Cedar Point Credit Card, and you could cut back on interest and clutter in the new year!




What's a Credit Card Balance Transfer?

A balance transfer is simple. You apply for a new card with a lower interest rate than your current card. Then, you request to transfer your balance from that card to the new one. Essentially, you're moving credit card debt from one credit card to another to save money on interest. Do you carry balances on multiple credit cards? You can transfer multiple balances to a Cedar Point credit card for a simpler monthly payment.

When you transfer your balances to a Cedar Point credit card, you can consolidate your debt while also accessing a lower, fixed rate. Lower rates can potentially help you save money on your monthly payments and pay off your debt sooner. Here's how:

  • Make it simple: Turn multiple payments into one payment.
  • Lock in a low rate: Cedar Point offers consistently low rates.
  • Fixed-rate: There is no penalty rate or variable rate.
  • Pay it down: With a lower rate, you can pay down debt faster.
  • No balance transfer fee: You can concentrate on saving.


Here's an example of what your monthly interest savings might look like if you transfer your balances to Cedar Point. In the scenario below, your monthly payment would be reduced by $18.  Over time, those savings really add up.

Do the Math

Blue Calculator Icon If you carry a balance, with an APR of between 15 – 20%, almost half of every minimum payment made is consumed by interest charges. With over 20% APR that becomes nearly two-thirds of your minimum payment. The example below reflects a $1,000 balance.

If your minimum payment is $25 on your $1,000 balance:


  • At 15% APR, you will pay $12.50 of the $25.00 in interest alone. Exactly half of your minimum payment is committed to paying off accrued interest.
  • At 20% APR, you will pay $16.67 of the $25.00 in interest. Here, you'll only be paying down $8.33 of principal.
  • At 22% APR (which is a common APR for many reward credit cards), you'll be paying $18.33 in interest charges.

You get the idea. With a lower rate like 7%, you are paying more toward the principal to help you decrease your debt faster.
