You manage everything in your life like a boss! Your schedule, your closet, your lawn… So why not your finances? Why churn through four different credit cards with high variable interest rates when Cedar Point has a low fixed rate credit card? Transfer your balances to Cedar Point and save on interest in the long run. 

Have you made that all-important New Years Resolution to save money and pay down debt? Then don’t slowly chip away at that debt. A low rate credit card is perfect for the New Year because it means you can pay down your interest faster and get back to “business as usual”. Cedar Point offers a low fixed rate credit card that can help you save money. Here's how:

  1. Make it simple: turn multiple payments into one payment
  2. Lock in a low rate: Cedar Point offers consistently low rates
  3. Fixed rate: there is no penalty rate or variable rate
  4. Pay it down: with a lower rate, you can pay down debt faster
  5. No balance transfer fee: so you can concentrate on saving

Here's a pretty stunning visual of what your monthly interest savings might look like by switching to Cedar Point.

APR* 15.49% 21.90% 15.74% 17.39%** 7.00%
MONTHLY PAYMENT $36 $28 $24 $88 $70

 What does it mean? In the scenario above, your monthly payment would be reduced by $18. And you'd be saving over $30 on interest alone. Over time, that really adds up. So consider transferring your balance to a Cedar Point credit card today!

Simplify and pay it down. Money managed.

Do the math

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 $1000 balance.

If your minimum payment is $25 on your $1000 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're paying more toward the principal, to help you decrease your debt faster.
