Up to your ears in credit card debt?

Charge it! That seems to be what many Illinois residents do when buying things they do or do not need. Some put expenses on credit cards in order to take advantage of the card benefits -- such as cash back or travel points, -- while others do it simply because they lack the funds to pay any other way. In either case, credit card debt can quickly add up to the point where it seems impossible to pay it back.

Why credit card debt keeps increasing

Credit cards can be a good thing to have in one's wallet. They help build one's credit rating, some offer cash back or other incentives, and generally speaking, they are safer to carry than cash. While these are all great benefits, having access to a credit card also allows people to spend more than they can pay off at the end of every month. This is why for many Illinois residents, their credit card debt keeps increasing.
