How do you deal with credit card debt?

It depends how much debt , and how much disposable income (spending money) that you have. If you are able to make higher than the minimum payment, then do so. this will decrease the principle balance.

On the other hand, if you are making minimum payments, or you are struggling to do so, then you may need to enroll in a debt management or debt elimination program.

Carrying an excessive amount of credit card debt is like digging yourself in a hole. In many cases, the balances increase-not decrease. Due to the financial crises, there are many programs available to help people get out of debt.
