Can you pay off a car loan with a credit card?

"I got a credit card with a $15,000 credit limit and 0% interest for 24 months.

My car loan balance is $11,000 with a 6.99% interest rate. I want to pay it off over the next two years.

Can you pay off a car loan with a credit card?"

“You might be able to do this. I you can, it’s a great way to save some money and get bonus points on your credit card.
The problem lies with the lender. Some lenders won’t let you pay off a loan with a credit card while others will charge you a hefty processing fee to do so.
Call your lender and see if they allow credit card payments and ask about fees. If your lender won’t charge you a fee, go ahead and use your card. If they will charge you, see how paying the fee compares to paying interest on the loan. The cheaper option is the ideal choice.”
