I have some credit cards that I need to consolidate into a BT.
My scores are TU 665 EX 680 & EQ 660. All Fico except EX. That's discover.
I need to BT about $3000. My highest limit on my cards are $1500. I have 1 year aaoa.
I have 10 inquiries 75% of them are auto.
Most recent inquiry was in June.
Do u think I have any chance of getting a BT card & who should I try to apply with?
Any advice would be wonderful

chase slate has no bt fee and 0% for 15 months, doesn't hurt to try
+1 best BT card at the moment
Go for Chase Slate.
You will likely need to recon and explain the auto INQ's

I already have a freedom, would that increase or decrease my chances? My current UTI is 34% with my debt to income ratio being 7%
As long as you have been a good customer I don’t think it would lower your odds of getting it. I say this because I’m now on my 5th Amex. If you want that card you should be good.

Try AMEX Clear too. They have no BT transfer fees as well. Not sure what your credit needs to look like to get approved for one of these cards tho.
Also, to the OP, you can not BT a card balance with the same bank. You can't take a balance from Freedom to Slate. You would have to take your balance to another bank altogether. Just an FYI.

Wait... Does Amex Clear have a 0% bt option?!!!
Plus the flexibility to pay over time.
No annual fee, no late fees, no balance transfer fees, no overlimitfees, and no cash advance fees.
