I have debts that need to be paid would it be a good idea for me to use a personal loan in order to pay these debts?

I am in a stable job with two credit cards that have quite the debt under their belts one is due this month and the other hasn't reached its limit though I figured would it be okay if I had a personal loan done in order for me to be able to pay these debts, would that be a good idea or should I not risk the money and interest rate?

    Just as long as the interest rates are not that high and that loan isn't going to be lasting long without it being paid, then I say it is a matter of priority of whether you should get a loan because if all else fails and you fail to pay the loan immediately, the interest rates will get you otherwise and you will be under twice the amount of debt that you started with, ofcourse it can be helped just as long as you responsibly find out the set backs of having a personal loan and if you are able to handle of paying the said loan when the need arrives

MoneySmart exclusive rate of 3.5% (7.27% p.a.) for new loan customers with only 1% processing fee

The OCBC ExtraCash Loan is a true personal loan as it allows you to borrow up to 6X your monthly salary. However, I must warn that the interest rate is kinda high. If you don’t require that much money, I recommend that you consider the OCBC Cash-on-Instalments loan which is slightly cheaper. However currently with OCBC personal loan, you can get a MoneySmart exclusive rate of 3.5% (7.27% p.a.) for new loan customers with only 1% processing fee. For existing loan customers, you pay an interest of 4.7% p.a. (EIR 9.46% p.a.).

DBS personal loans are based on either your credit card or personal line of credit

DBS personal loans are based on either your credit card or personal line of credit. Thus if you have DBS credit card or DBS Cashline and a DBS deposit account, you can apply through internet banking and get your loan processed immediately and credited instantly into your account. However if you don’t have a DBS credit card you can still get this loan, but you will have to furnish your income documents and obviously you won’t get the funds right away

One other good thing CIMB credit cards have is that there are no annual fees

The CIMB CashLite personal loan is based on your available credit card credit limit therefore you have to be a CIMB cardholder to apply for it. One other good thing CIMB credit cards have is that there are no annual fees but CIMB doesn’t publish their interest rates online. The actual interest rate is personalised based on your risk profile and credit history so you might very well end up with a higher interest rate than advertised.
