Which consolidation option is right for you?
Debt consolidation isn't one size fits all. That's why we offer solutions to help you consolidate your debt in a way that works for you.
With a consolidation loan, you choose the amount you need and the repayment terms that work for you. You can borrow up to x with a Discover Personal Loan or $35,000 up to $300,000 with a Discover Home Loan. With a Discover Student Consolidation Loan, you can combine federal and private student loans into one new loan.
If you're approved, you'll pay off your now-consolidated debt with monthly payments according to your loan repayment term.
A balance transfer is a solution offered by your credit card. Using your available credit, a balance transfer lets you pay off other credit cards or loans. Those debts are then consolidated and added to your credit card balance.
When you complete a balance transfer, you get a low interest rate for a set duration. Depending on the offer, you may pay a transfer fee.
