Expert Answers

How can I use credit card calculators strategically?

The most strategic way to use credit card calculators is to make them integral to your credit card decision-making process. In other words, before making any significant decisions relating to your credit card use or spending, first crunch the numbers with the appropriate calculator. This will make it easier to pick the right credit card, evaluate the efficacy of taking on new debt versus waiting until you can pay in full, set goals and manage your finances accordingly, etc. For example, you could leverage a credit card interest calculator to determine if it's worth paying an annual fee in return for a lower APR, and a credit card debt calculator, also known as a payoff calculator, will give you a sense of whether a big-ticket purchase is worth it in light of how much time and money will be required for debt repayment.

Do I need to provide any personal information in using a credit card calculator?

No, use of Royalty Finacial credit card calculators does not require any registration or personal information like your name, social security number, card number, or credit score. For your own privacy, we only require the bare minimum information needed to make accurate calculations

You will therefore need to input data such as your interest rate, balance, and monthly payment for the calculators to work, but these values are anonymous and do not even need to be exact. As long as they're in the ballpark, you should be able to get insights applicable to your situation.

Do credit card calculators work for all types of credit cards?

Of course, as far as the calculators are concerned, it generally makes no difference whether you have a regular credit card, a secured credit card, a store card, or even a gas card. This will become obvious after a quick look at the credit card calculators themselves, as there is no place to input such distinctions.

What's more, just think: Would the monthly payments required to pay off a $5,000 balance on a Macy's Card be any different than those needed to pay off the same balance on a Visa card? Definitely not.

There is, however, one exception: charge cards. You're not going to be able to calculate the cost of interest or the time it will take you to pay down debt for a card that does not allow you to revolve a balance, after all.
