How to use RateSupermarket.ca’s credit card debt calculator

Our convenient credit card debt calculator is designed to show you when you’ll repay your debt in full, and how much interest you’ll accumulate as you’re paying it off and offer repayment solutions. You’ll receive comprehensive – yet, easy-to-understand – results that are personalized to your individual spending habits. Don’t worry, your information is always confidential.

See how long it will take until you’re debt-free. Here’s how to use our debt calculator:

  1. Press start and choose your current credit card.
  2. Next, input the current balance on your credit card. A credit card balance is the amount of money owed to the credit card company. If you don’t remember exactly how much your balance is, review your online banking account or credit card statement.
  3. If you have more than one credit card, add them along with its current balance. The calculator accommodates up to three credit cards.
  4. Use the sliders to indicate your annual income.
  5. Determine how much you can put toward your credit card debt each month. If you don’t know exactly how much you can afford to pay off, create a monthly budget for yourself that adds up to or is less than the total amount of money you take home each month. Your budget should include items such as groceries, transportation, living expenses, credit card debt repayment and entertainment.
  6. After that, answer whether or not you are going to continue to spend on your credit card while you pay it off. If you are but you are not exactly sure how much you spend on your credit card each month, take this time to review the last four months of your online banking and credit card statements. Then add up your total spending and divide the totals by four. That’s the average amount you’ve spent over the last four months, so adjust the slider to reflect your spending.
  7. Finally - your results. Based on your input, we’ve provided key information for you to make informed decisions. You’ll find out how long it will take to pay off your credit card debt, how much you will have to pay back each month, how much interest you will be accruing, and we also provide recommendations on low interest and low balance transfer credit cards that will make your repayment, easier.
