Convert Credit Into Cash! Use Credit Cards to Launch Your Business Idea
How To Convert Your Credit Card Into Cash
A credit card is defined as a payment card issued by a card issuer (often the bank) to cardholders so that the user can pay a seller for their services or goods. The user promises the issuer that they will pay the amounts and all other charges agreed. The cardholder has a revolving account created by the issuer to borrow money to pay the merchant.
Accessing a credit facility may sometimes be very difficult for some people due to low credit ratings and a lack of securities.
This post will teach you how you can easily convert your credit cards into cash at a very low-interest rate.
Follow the following easy steps to convert your credit into cash:
- First step: Identify a credit card that will offer you the highest possible amount on cash advance. Ensure you acquire this card.
- Second step: Get four or three credit cards that charge 0% APR (Annual percentage Rate) when transferring your balances for at least 12 months. Banks usually offer their clients this deal after signing up for a first credit card with them. Banks are always eager to offer credit cards at favorable rates to clients who can get their 1st
- Step Three: Take the most considerable amount of cash advance that your first credit card can allow. After receiving the amount, transfer it to your other credit cards immediately at an APR of 0%.
You now have a loan repayable in a year with easy installments at 0% APR. Note that your cash loans’ initial cost is possibly the lowest you can ever receive in the banking industry. The card you take the cash advance will also have zero balances. Invest the cash you have transferred in the business of your desire, then pay it for a year interest-free. If you need more money, you can repeat this.
The benefits of converting your credit card into cash are:
- You can easily use it several times.
- Instant cash access.
- Credit score improvement.
- There are minimal background and credit checks.
- You do not need to use your assets to get the credit; thus, it is unsecured.
- Easy monthly installments, relating to your initial credit.
CALCULATE YOUR REPAYMENTS
A cardholder needs to know how to calculate their repayments. The methods used to calculate this are straightforward.
- Get the minimum payment;
You will require your (bank) card issuer to provide you with the minimum payment they need from you.
- Calculate the interest amount;
With each installment amount you pay, some amount goes into producing the principal balance while the other will clearing the interest accrued.
How to calculate the interest charged for you:
- Enquire from your card issuer the interest rate charged on your card. You could, for example, find that the interest rate is 12% APR.
- Convert the annual rate to monthly by dividing this by 12 months to get 1% per month.
If your card issuer charges this per day, divide the annual rate by 365 days to get a 0.0328% interest rate per day.
- Multiply 1%, which is the monthly rate by your outstanding balance. Let’s use £5000 as your due balance in this case.
Use 0.0328% to get the daily rate if that is the method that your card issuer uses. You will therefore multiply 0.0328% by £5000.
- Your loan interest for the first (monthly) method will be £50, while your daily loan interest as the second method will be £1.6438.
- Repeat this process to get the amount to be charged every month or for each day.
- Calculate the principal;
The amount that remains after deducting the interest from the payment amount or interest amount is known as the principal balance. The bank will tell you the amount you should pay monthly, depending on your loan amount and loan period.
In this case, the monthly repayment amount is £113. The monthly interest charged, as seen above, is £50. Subtract £ 50 (the interest charged) from the first installment of£113 to get £63; this amount is the principal amount paid. To get the new total outstanding loan, we will subtract £ 63 from £5000, which was the initial loan balance, to get £4937 as the original loan balance.
You will use this new outstanding loan figure to calculate interest charged in the second month, as shown in step two above. It’s important to note that the lower the due balance, the lower the interest amount charged to your card. It means that if you accelerate your loan repayment by paying a higher installment amount, you will eventually reduce the loan interest and clear your loan earlier.
- Repeat the steps above for each month;
You should have realized by now that if you use the monthly formula, you will have fewer calculations, unlike the daily procedure.
With the easy steps shown above, you can now easily calculate the interest charged and create an amortization table. You can use a spreadsheet when calculating the amount to make your work easier.
- Check any variations ;
The above formula can vary due to the following reasons
- Some card issuer will charge you an annual fee. In this case, you will have to add this fee to your outstanding balance to calculate the interest to be charged.
- At times the card issuer may have a varying interest rate. You will thus have to adjust your calculation as per the new rates.
- If you have skipped a payment, which you should avoid, you will have to adjust your calculations with zero. Ignoring an amount will lead to higher interest charged by the end of the period.
