I was just reading about strategies to reduce debt, and happened upon the idea of making bi-monthly (in the sense of twice a month) payments to credit card companies. I don't quite understand how this helps more than paying them on time Not sure how this works w/ credit cards, did it say to make the full payment twice a month or half payment twice a month? With mortgages, a bi-monthly payment consists of making a half payment every two weeks. The reason this helps w/ the interest is that you end up making 13 payments in a year. Perhaps this is the idea behind the credit card as well. It seemed that the idea was to pay half the payment twice a month, but to make sure that both payments showed up in the same billing cycle.
