The Debt Consolidation Loan at Adventure Credit Union was designed with you in mind!  We want to help you live a better financial life in Grand RapidsLansing and other parts of Michigan.

Benefits of Consolidating Debts:

  • Pay less interest: When you have credit card debt, you're likely paying high interest rates.  The average credit card rate in the United States is currently 18.90% APR*.  Adventure Credit Union's Debt Consolidation Loan features a fixed interest of just 9.99% APR.**  Having a lower interest rate means that more money from each payment goes towards the principal balance owed, and less towards interest charges.

  • Pay off debt faster: Credit cards are revolving lines of credit.  Each month, a credit card statement tells you the minimum amount due, and your total balance.  When you opt to make only the minimum monthly payment, you're (usually) paying a percentage (e.g., 2% to 4%) of the balance outstanding.  Over time, as your balance goes down, so does your minimum monthly payment.  This payment model makes it take a long time to pay off your balance in full.
    Adventure Credit Union's Debt Consolidation Loan has a predefined term of your choice, ranging from 12 to 60 months.  Each month, you'll pay an equal installment of your original loan amount.  This means your monthly payment will always be the same, giving you consistency in your budget, and paying off your balance faster.  From day one with your Debt Consolidation Loan, you'll know when it will be paid in full.  Plus, you're welcome to pay off your loan early without any penalties.

  • Lower monthly obligations:  While not guaranteed, it is possible that consolidating multiple debts into one Debt Consolidation Loan could actually result in a lower monthly payment.  Our Trusted Financial Guides in Michigan can look at your unique situation once your application is submitted.

  • Simplify your finances: According to Experian, Americans have four credit cards on average***.  That potentially means four different balances, four different interest rates, and four different payment due dates.  To further complicate matters, credit cards often different fees and penalty APRs if a payment is missed.  You can simplify your finances by consolidating all of your credit card debts into one loan with a fixed interest rate.

Whenever you apply for a loan or a credit card the lender will need to complete a hard inquiry on your credit history.  According to FICO, a hard inquiry will initially drop your credit score by about 5 points, however this drop will be temporary.  However, consolidating debt has the potential to improve your credit score over time in two ways: 

The #1 factor that determines your credit score is paying your bills on time.  Consolidating multiple credit cards and other debts into one monthly payment (i.e., a debt consolidation loan) makes this easier.  Instead of keeping track of multiple payment amounts and due dates- you’ll just have one.  Plus, if you set up automatic monthly payments, and we’ll reward you with a 0.15% APR Rate Reward.

The #2 factor determining your credit score is something called “credit utilization ratio.”  This is simply a measure of how much of your available revolving credit that you’re currently using.  As an easy example: if you have two credit cards that each have a $5,000 limit, your total available revolving credit is $10,000.  If you owe $4,000 on each of your cards, you’re using a total of $8,000 or 80% of your available revolving credit.  Credit Bureaus like to see your “credit utilization” at 30% or less.

When you use a Debt Consolidation Loan to pay off your credit card balances, your credit utilization ratio could drop all the way to 0%.  This will boost your credit score over time.
