Personal Note: Although I am a big fan of the debt snowball, I work with people all the time that pay 15% or even 24% on their credit cards which is ridiculous. I really am a fan of SoFi because they essentially will help you reduce your interest rate so that you can pay your debt off even faster and save a TON of money in interest in the long run!
