If you are unhappy with the interest rate you currently receive for your credit then there are a number of steps you may wish to consider taking in order to get yourself better rates and more favourable terms. These include: · Ensuring that you credit report is accurate and up to date · Requesting better rates from your existing credit providers · Applying for better rates from new credit providers · Consider switching to secured credit or less flexible credit over a longer term · Put effort into improving your credit rating All of these steps have a potential to get you better credit card interest rates and reduce the amounts you have to pay in monthly repayments. If you have a lot of loans and payments on credit cards and other high interest accounts, one of the best ways to reduce your monthly payments is to consolidate this debt into one loan. This loan can be secured over your home if you are a homeowner and this will give you access to far better interest rates. You should be very careful before securing any debts over your home as it may put your home at risk if you find that you are unable to meet your repayment commitments. A consolidated loan, over a period of two to five years usually, can give you access to far lower rates of interest and this alone can save you hundreds of dollars each month in bills.
Ensure your credit report is accurate… Another step you may consider is checking that your credit report is accurate. Since all credit-reporting companies have a legal obligation to ensure the accuracy of their reports, they will usually be happy to amend your report if you find that there are errors contained on it that will make it harder for you to receive credit. You may also wish to put some time into improving your report if it is bad, by paying your bills on time, reducing the amount of overall credit you have outstanding and making other alterations that get reported on your rating.

If you have been with your credit provider for some time and have always managed to pay your bill in full and on time, you may be entitled to have your credit rate lowered. If you have other credit cards with lower rates, tell this to the company and they may be willing to match this in order to keep your business.
