Maybe you took out your first credit card before college to make sure you'd have money in an emergency or began to use one for its perks when you first got a great-paying job. It doesn't matter when, but if that card has grown to a point of causing you financial strain, it's time to look into debt relief options. There are dozens of methods to eliminate debt from transferring debt to a low-interest card to negotiating with creditors.
