Thinking outside the box can save you a bundle.

With bi-weekly loan payments, you can cut thousands from your loan interest charges and eliminate debt years ahead of schedule.

You've probably heard the phrase, "Divide and conquer." That's a good strategy for paying off your Fox loans. By dividing your scheduled monthly payment in half and then sending that amount every two weeks, you can enjoy significant long-term savings.

  • 26 half-payments are made each year rather than 12 full payments
  • The result is one full extra payment to the loan each year
  • Principal balance is reduced every two weeks instead of monthly
  • The lifespan of your loan is reduced.

This chart illustrates your savings using the bi-weekly payment option.
