We provide an individual manager for every account—and we’ll give you that person’s direct phone number so you can chat with them about any questions or concerns. You’re too important for us to direct you to some faraway call center halfway around the globe. You’ll talk to a real, live person, and you can talk to the same one every time. If you’re not sure who your account manager is, call us at 888-777-9190 to find out.
If you focus on reducing your principal (the initial sum you borrowed), less interest will add up over time. This saves you money in the long run, and there are a couple of ways to do it.
You can make lump-sum payments toward your principal, or you can pay more than your minimum amount due. All the extra will be applied to your principal, reducing the amount of interest that piles up. Many people use their tax returns, bonuses, etc. to carve away at their principal.
Not only do extra payments lower your principal balance, but you’ll also get credit toward your next payment due. So if you have a lean month the next month, you’ll have a fallback option to make a lower (or no) payment. And if you don’t have a lean month, then congrats—you can just keep paying off your account quickly.
Many lenders look at credit in twelve-month increments, but every account is different, so there’s no magic date for these things. However, the average account requires about two years before a trade or refinance can take place. Avid is not a direct lender and is unable to refinance existing customers.
