Recommendations for credit card with high balance and interest
I have a Discover card with an almost 14,000 balance. The interest is super high at around 29%. I tried calling them but they would only lower interest future purchases.

I'm trying to pay it down...but my payments are basically all going towards interest.

Also I tried applying for Chase Slate card for a zero percent balance transfer...but they only approved me for 1,000...which is pretty much worthless to me...

Now I'm a bit scared to try applying for any other cards b/c I don't want that to affect my credit.

Any recommendations? Thanks!
