Just asking for opinions here. I've seen experts on both sides of this debate. Some say pay the minimum balance and save; others say pay off credit cards asap, then save. I have a client who is debating this with herself, and I'm not telling her either way, but then I was curious about what you think. My inclination right now is to pay the minimum due and put away everything you can in savings 'just in case'. Others I know are throwing everything they can into their credit card payments to get them paid off.
