Student loans and cc's
« on: January 08, 2017, 11:52:37 AM »
Has anybody had success paying their student loans with a credit card?

Looking into refinancing and wanted to hear opinions.

Have an easy fast.

Been posted abt in other threads.

It is no longer possible to pay student loans w cc as of 1/1/17 thanks to DOE no longer allowing servicers to accept them.

Can you pay off all your student loans with a cc, then default and go into bankruptcy and say you have no assets?

they should have taught that to you in school. If you didnt learn that then it was a waist of money and your better off not paying...

Anyone tried using a prepaid gift card (specifically AGC) with Great Lakes in the past week? Im getting a denial.

FYI for those that care....

The supervisor, after researching this the past month, called me back and advised me that there system was hard coded and anything that is processed as a credit card, will no longer go thru. So this basically rules out using AGC for these payments. She said if there are any GCs that process as a debit, she can take those she believes.

I dont believe there are any, but if there are, please let me know

https://www.reddit.com/r/StudentLoans/comments/7i3kkp/great_lakes_will_no_longer_accept_amex_gift_cards/

Looks like its been also confirmed there.

Anyone know any gift cards that process as debit and have relatively low fees?
