Get yo’ money right! 3 Texas cities rank in top 5 for having highest credit card debt

HOUSTON -- Does it feel like you're drowning in debt? “Right now, I think I have about several hundred dollars of credit card debt,” said Chris Hill.

The Federal Reserve says America’s Credit Card debt is the highest it's ever been, surpassing 1 trillion dollars back in 2017.  So, who's carrying the biggest burden? According to a new study from, southern cities are loaded with credit card debt.

The Lone Star State claims three of five cities with the highest debt. San Antonio tops the list at #1. Houston takes the #3 spot, and Dallas follows at #5.

When it comes to paying off those dreaded credit card bills, folks in Dallas will take an average 19 months, Houstonians 20 months, and it'll take a whopping 22 months for San Antonio residents.

Getting out of debt isn't always easy but it is possible.

“I always pay some when I get paid, probably it depends around 10% or 20% maybe. I just look at it like that money that I owe the credit card companies doesn't belong to me, it belongs to the credit card companies so, when I get paid, I immediately pay the bill on it,” said Hill.

With climbing interest rates in 2018, now is the time to get serious about getting your money right.
