Every extra payment you make lowers your principal balance and helps you pay off your past due amount much faster. Over time, you are saving on interest.

For example:

  • If you owe $3,000 and pay $50/month only, you'll pay off the $3,000 in 76 months.
  • If you pay $25 more each month, you'll pay off the $3,000 in 47 months – 29 months sooner.

Take a look and see how every “extra” dollar you pay saves you money!
