Debt Payoff Planner and Calculator determines the optimum payment plan and how long it will take until you will be debt free. You tell the app how much you want to budget toward paying off your debt and we'll tell you how. We recommend the Debt Snowball strategy because we believe that paying off individual accounts faster will help you stay focused on your financial goal of debt elimination. A payoff plan is only useful if you stick with it!
Your ability and willingness to pay more than the minimum payments is how you will become debt free in less time than you imagined. Budgeting your income will help you to get a regular monthly amount to pay down the debt faster. The payoff chart will show two payoff scenarios: only paying the minimum amounts, and the repayment schedule when you pay more the the minimum ever month.
Additionally, there is an option to create an account for saving debt payoff and payment information. This account can be accessed across multiple devices, from multiple app stores. Creating an account is entirely optional, but it does enable you to have a secure backup and your information is immediately available if you start using a new device. Getting out of debt is hard, so we try to allow you to take baby steps toward this goal.
We believe that becoming debt free requires an easy starting point and making sure every dollar is leveraged perfectly. The loan calculator has minimal inputs in order to make your money management easy to follow.
The Debt Payoff Planner and Calculator is also used for tracking payments and updating the time-frame for becoming debt-free. Inputting payment information is as simple as typing in the amount and the date the payment was made. The goal of payment tracking is to see your progress over time and affirm that you are staying focused on your financial goals.
In addition to being a debt tracker and loan calculator, the apps points out some possible next steps with articles focused on how to pay off student loans, auto loans, and credit cards faster. Also, there are some tips on credit card balance transfers as well as strategies for debt consolidation.
Eight different loan categories are available to help plan track and visualize your unique situation:
💳 Credit Cards like Capital One, Citicard, Chase, etc.
🎓 Student Loans like Navient, Sallie Mae, Great Lakes, etc.
🚗 Auto / Car Loans
🏥 Medical Loans
🏠 Mortgages like Rocket Mortgage, SoFi, etc.

In addition to the Debt Snowball calculator and the Debt Avalanche method, many users like to do a custom sorting of their debts. This customization is available for users that want to be their own debt manager.
Debt Payoff Planner supports Debt Snowflake payment as well. A Debt Snowflake is a one-time debt payment from things like a bonus at work, a tax refund, an extra payday, etc. This additional capability allows you to have tighter control over every dollar you are budgeting.
