New Credit Card Rules Go Into Effect Tomorrow

The Federal Reserve has created a new credit card rules guide that should help you understand the new rules and how they might affect your credit card account.

Here are six big changes you need to be aware of, courtesy of Michelle Singletary. Read her column on what to watch out for with the new credit card rules here.

Six key changes for credit card holders:

  1. Universal defaults: Companies cannot raise interest rates on one card if a customer is late or missing a payment on a separate account.

  2. Time: Promotional interest rates must last at least six months, and issuers cannot raise interest rates on new accounts for the first year.

  3. Fees: Companies can no longer charge a fee if you go over your credit limit.

  4. Payments: Any extra money paid on a card will now go toward the balance with highest interest rate.

  5. Billing statements: Among other things, statements must disclose the penalty fee for late payments and warn that they could result in a
    higher rate.

  6. Under 21: Underage consumers cannot open a credit card account without a co-signer or proof of independent income.

Should You Refinance Your Mortgage?

Mortgage interest rates fell to 50-year lows again this week. Should you refinance? You need to answer the following questions:

  1. Can you lower the interest rate? By how much?
  2. Can you lower your monthly payment?
  3. Can you shorten the loan term?
  4. How much will you pay to get your refinance?

We had a number of calls about this today. You have to be able to answer these four questions to know if you’re making the right move. If you’re interested in refinancing, you should go to our Tools page to play around with our mortgage calculators.

You might also want to play around with the amortization calculators at I’m not recommending as a place to get a mortgage, but their calculators are helpful.
