first of all, if you are in the situation now where you have a lot of credit card debt, do you have tips to help us get out? >> right. quite a few tips here. so number one is you really want to avoid just making the minimum pavements on your card. >> that seems so attractive sometimes. okay, i'm still making the payment, but what problems does that bring? >> right. if you are only making the minimum payments you could be paying off your card for close to 30 years. >> wow. >> with the finance charges being so high today you could be paying 16 plus percent in apr, annual percentage rate on your card. the amount of fees you are paying over the years to the credit card companies just really adds up overtime. >> whatever you bought is 3 or 4, 5 much more expensive than the original that you pay. >> right. we see interest rates higher than that, 16%. that is when people can really get in trouble if they are not paying that off.
9:24 am
>> let's go to number 2 which is missing payments. you know, say you get in a financial bind in a month, you miss a payment. why is that bad? >> so missing payments is bad. usually you get a charge when you miss a payment. and also your percentage rates can go up after you miss a payment. so percentage rates are already super high on cards, you end up paying more and morph more, if you miss payment. >> and i would recommend putting your card on auto pay, too, for at least the minimum amount. >> that way you never get that late fee. >> you don't miss the payment. >> that's easy to do with most cards. >> right. >> number 3 is taking out cash advances, you know, basically loaning -- taking a loan out from your credit card. >> never want to do that unless it's an emergency situation. there is again fees for taking out cash advances, usually about 2 to 5% whatever amount you are taking out.
9:25 am
plus the interest rate on cash advances is actually higher than your normal interest rate on the card. >> i looked at some of those. they can be up to 30%, you pay a ton in financial charges. >> how about opening too many accounts? you know the other day he went into a department store, they asked me to open up another account. i said no because i already have enough. people will take the 20% discount, you know, if you open up a carded to you get a 20% discount. you shouldn't do that. >> right, it leads to trouble. if you have too many cards open. we don't recommend having more than two cards open max, there is no need to have more than that. you are right, i can't take a flight anymore without someone trying to push a card on me. the latest, greatest card. >> when you close cards, reopen a card, i got 8 cards i have to close them, that dings your credit. >> a lot can lead to a ding in
9:26 am
your credit. you really want to avoid that. >> just be why dish. and the last one is running a high balance. now, you know i know people don't have a choice, this is what they do, how can they get that balance down. >> do whatever you can to get it down. it's, you know, example is how bad it can, be $20,000 balance you are running and that is at the age of 16.86, you are paying 270-dollars a month in finance charges. can you see how that would add up month after month, year after year. first go online, calculators online you can see, plug in your rate, how much you owe and you will see how much you are paying finance charges every month. there is one on our website. you you go in there, plug that in knowing is half the battle. know what you're paying that will hopefully motivate you to
9:27 am
start paying it off. once you paid it off and stop paying interest hopefully you can start saving. >> saving some of that money. >> hopefully investing and gaining interest as opposed to paying. >> i hope you're helping people get out of credit card debt. >> i'm trying. >> let's go back to you. coming.up in a minute, a woman takes to social media and a accuses cal's football team of sexual harassment. what she says and how the school is responding. plus,. >> we're typical family, there is nothing different about us at all. he just happens to have a label. san to rosa family overcoming stereotypes, a young boy showing the world there is nothing down about having down's syndrome. here you go little guy.
