"Good planning tool"

January 13, 2009

 |  Version: Debt Reduction Calculator for Excel 1.0

Pros

Easy to use. Lets you try a number of payment options to see how quickly you can pay down your debt. Lets you change the order of accounts to pay off.

Cons

Needed better explaination of some functions, like the 'snowball.'

Summary

This is a very easy to use program: Put in your accounts, total debt, interest rate, and minimum payment and choose the pay-off option you'd like. It calculate how much interest you'll pay overall and when you'll be out of debt. There were a few things that could have used better explainations. I thought there was some way to enter the amount of the 'snowball' but it is determined by putting in a larger total monthly payment. However having the 'snowball' function lets you see how much faster you can get out of debt. The second sheet is a spreadsheet listing the payments you'll be makiing each month. There is a way to enter one-time additional payments, but you have to be carefull because it messes up the spreadsheet. He does warn you about that, but it would be nice if you could do it automatically.

"Powerful calculator"

October 05, 2008  |  By because_789

 |  Version: Debt Reduction Calculator for Excel 1.0

Pros

Can use up to 20 different debts (hopefully no one needs all 20!) and it's free.

Cons

I don't like how the calculator can only use one start date. If your debt changes, one would have to update all the other debt lines as well. But this is only a minor con.

Summary

Really helpful to see how long it could take to pay off debts. Good visual payoff schedule that goes month by month.

"does just what it says it will"

September 28, 2008  |  By nancysher

 |  Version: Debt Reduction Calculator for Excel 1.0

Pros

just put in your current pay-off balances for up to 20 credit cards, educational loans, etc. Then, enter the interest rates and the minimum amount due for each. And the program will calculate the best way to pay it all off!

Cons

while the explanatory notes were necessary, i deleted them once i figured out how to work it and that cleared up the visual display.

Summary

i now know how much to put on each debt to pay it off the way i want to, with the least interest. and i know just how long it's going to take.....
