How Velocity Banking works?
First, you use the banks money to put a huge payment towards your amortize debt. This is called chunking or sweep. Then when your paycheck comes in, you dump the entire amount into the line of credit. This will benefit you three ways.

- Push back the due date on that simple interest line of credit.
- Use your income twice. Yes, the velocity banking method allows you to use your paycheck more than once.
How is that possible? I’m glad you asked.
When you get your paycheck and transfer it all in to your line of credit, you automatically satisfied that month’s payment for that line of credit. It is count as a payment.
But the beauty of lines of credit is that they are open ended, also known as revolving credit. Which means you can put money in and take money out.
So, the same income you just moved into your line of credit can be access again to pay the rest of your bills without fees. Thus, you’re using your income twice. Once for paying the line of credit, and then reusing it to pay your bills.
What stays in the line of credit is your cash flow (that extra money you used to sent to make extra payments and don’t get back), is now helping you bring the balance on the line of credit back faster so you can make another big chunk.
