0% balance transfer with high util

[ Edited ]

Hi folks,

 

               I am looking for a balance transfer deal on a 10K or so balance. I searched online and PENFED has some good 18 month promotions but I am not sure if I would qualify for it. Below is my profile, can you suggest some other 0% offers for BT with generous CLs?

your inputs are much appreciated :smileyhappy:

 

My Profile:

AAoA: 3.2 years

EQ: 655 (as of today), EX: 664 (Jan 27, through AMEX)

INQ: EQ=0, TU=0, EX=2

Util: 90% (Will drop down on 70% or so once my Hilton Honors hit CBs with limit of 4500)

Income: 105,000 for 2011 (gave this to Amex), this years income is going to be 120,000.

Employment: Fulltime, Software Engineer with same company for over 5 years now.

1 Auto Loan closed in 2010. 

Currently 1 auto loan running through BMW Finance since Jan 2011.

Never had a single late/missed payment on any of my accounts ever.

 

Do you think I stand a chance with PENFED or any other CU/CCC where recon'ing is a possibility in case of denial?

Re: 0% balance transfer with high util

others have better info than me about them. From what I have read they are a hard nut to crack, but once your in.....YOU ARE IN!  They may like your profile better than mine as I do have some old paid baddies.

Thanks for thr assurance.

I can try to bite the bullet, wondering if someone has any other suggestion for BT. Barclays released a first 25 month BT offers in UK.. wish they could come up with something like that here.

It's country of nationality. I dont think it has anything to do with what country you want your card in.

 

It's like I am living in London and applying for this card.

Re: 0% balance transfer with high util

I was actually looking at BMW's but my wife gave me the death stare, for her whole family is employeed with Mercedes in Stuttgart. So as long as I am in Germany I am forbiden to purchase anything else then a Mercedes or I will have to face the wrath of the Swabish.
