BALANCE TRANSFER OPINION

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.


ANY ADVICE?

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.

Re: BALANCE TRANSFER OPINION

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

Hey HeySmiley Happy

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.

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: BALANCE TRANSFER OPINION

If Discover is no BT fee, no harm in moving it all over.  How long for you to pay down that 600ish dollars?

Don't even think about it ...LOL

So we need other options.

Can you pay a little extra per month?
