Can anyone recommend a good one? I've been using the one at whatsthecost.com, but I am getting frustrated by it. What I need is a calculator that will take into account that my minimum payment is tied to a percentage of my balance PLUS interest fees. At whatsthecost.com the only options are either fixed or a percentage of balance, and that's not the way mine are calculated. A a result I don't feel like I'm getting an accurate picture of my paydown schedule...

I'd also like to be able to see how much I'm actually paying in interest on each card as time goes by...is this too much to be looking for? I know there are bunch of calculators out there, but before I spend my morning looking for one that fits the bill, thought I'd ask the experts

Anyone? TIA...

I found this one...I REALLY like it...and it doesn't take nearly as long to go back and forth between pages. I guess the benefit of www.whatsthecost.com is that you are more actively entering in how much you pay down each month, so it's an extra bookkeeping step that lets you feel good about your progress. This website/spreadsheet is much better for strategizing, though!
