A good 0% BT card I would be good for

I'm trying to knock down the balance on my PSECU card without getting hit with big interest. Is there any cards that would be good with BT's and a good limit?? I'd like to narrow it down to a TU pull where i have only 6 INQ's.

 

The barclays rewards MC is a good look in my opinion, I really dont want another account but I cant figure out a way to knock it down quick.

Hmm... TU huh, that's going to be hard except for Barclays.  What state do you live in?  And how long do you need the 0% 18 months, or is 12 ok too?

Went for the Barclays rewards MC with the 15 mo 0% offer, declined Smiley Sad

 

Will have to call tommorow for recon.

I was recently looking for a 0% intro offer myself recently, and most of the major CCs seem to offer that -- probably as an incentive for the card. I'm assuming you want a TU pull also because it's your highest FICO. That's a challenge. I know you've said that you're BL'd w/Citi, but what about Chase or Discover?

 

I had my Apple for 6 or 7 mos before I apped for their MC. How long have you had the Apple? While they approved my MC, they definitely had a ceiling for the total CL of both cards. So, that may be a factor in your denial. Hope you do well on your recon! Smiley Happy

What is the rate on your PSECU card, and what is the balance?

Other than a BT for 0%,  you'll hardly find any credit cards that offer less than 9.9%.  Citi Diamond Preferred comes to mind as a possibility with 18 months at 0%.  You may just have to do it the old fashioned way and pay it down over time.  Be grateful that your APR is low with PSECU.  You do not want your reports to look like you are pyramiding your debt by applying for new cards to pay off other cards.  Your scores matter, specifically in this instance.  Seeking new credit to pay off any older debt isn't a good sign - personally for you, or for potential creditors.  i'm not trying to bust your chops here, but please be careful!
