Re: Using tax refund to pay cc balances

I pay off my cards monthly so no i won't. I could use it to pay down some of my 0% APR purchases from Best Buy but i don't care about my scores since i'm not getting any new credit so i'll let it sit in the bank and use the offer's full duration. :smileyhappy:

Thanks Swamp.

There are better deals as well. I'm getting 3% APY on my BCU savings account. When Chase sends me 12-month 0% APR convenience checks with a 1% fee, I deposit them directly into my savings account and earn a net 2% after the fee.
