IS IT A GOOD IDEA TO DO BALANCE TRANSFER? I GOT 9200 ON DISCOVER 0% 14MONTHS, BAL IS ONLY 254 WHICH WILL BE PAID SOON. AND THE OTHER CARD IS 603 BAL/2500 LIMIT. I WAS THINKING TO DO BALANCE TRANSFER SINCE I GOT A CHUNK OF LIMIT ON DISCO THAT IM NOT USING.
If you would pay less in interest byt ransferring the balance (don't forget to account for the 3% BT fee) then i would consider it. But $603 is probably not even worth transferring, as you probably could pay that off fairly quickly, even on an account that is accruing interest. Probably quick enough to not make it worth the trouble to do a BT.

Only you can crunch the numbers on your current balances and see whether there would be any savings worth doing a BT.

Well. 603/2500 soon is going to have 18% geeepeeerssss.... my disco no fee on BT and 0% for 14 months. So what do u think and when I calculate the usage on the 2500, its 24% UTL.
The Discover has no BT fee am I reading you right if so then it's worth it to BT and pay no interest?
Plus your in the garden.... cough cough and not doing apps ......better not be Lol
So you will have time to knock the balance down.
