Should I tranfer balances from high credit card to lower, then close the high interest accounts?
I have multiple credit card accounts open (5) and the lowest interest rate is still just under 18%. I know you shouldn't close accounts if you have a balance, but what if I transfer to a lower (if possible) interest rate account and then close some of the higher ones? At the very least that would help since I wouldn't have to make 5 different monthly payments.
