How We Make Money

College is more expensive than ever. Proof: 44 million people have student loans they’re trying to pay off.

Here at Comet, we want to help you stop beating yourself up about your debt and start making real strides to pay it off. $200 million dollars. That’s how much college grads have saved on student loan payments—working with Comet. How much could you save?

We’re not a lender. We’re a partner in helping you manage your student loan debt in the most-efficient way for your unique circumstances.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is refinance your student loans to a lower interest rate. If that’s the case, we’re happy to point you toward our highly-vetted and trusted partner lenders. If you take out a loan, we sometimes get a commission. We are deeply committed to only recommending reputable lenders that can provide real assistance in improving your financial situation.

Sometimes refinancing isn’t the best option. Maybe you’d make out better keeping your loans where they are, or moving to a federal income-driven repayment plan.

Whatever the case, we’ll show you how to crunch the numbers to figure out your best game plan.

We also provide insights and advice that you can use to help shore up your financial future. Preferably, that future will be debt-free.

Can't find what you are looking for and still have questions? We are here for you.
