Are you paying too much on your credit card debt?

The Reserve Bank of Australia reported that the nation collectively has racked up $51.46 billion in credit card debt. More than $33.1 billion of that debt is accruing interest.

And a lot of credit card interest rates remain high. Some credit cards have interest rates on purchases up to 26 per cent. A Senate inquiry into credit cards is investigating why average card rates are at about 18 per cent despite the RBA’s official cash rate falling to two per cent.
