    Soooo, I have some general questions:

    1) With the economy’s current condition is it worth the time trying to negotiate lower interest rates with credit card companies?

    2) Should I change any tactics for saving or paying off debts? i.e. is it better for me to increase my payments to credit cards & decrease what I am saving or vice versa?

    Thanks for any advice!
