Can someone explain please

I was just approved for a cc through my CU with no annual fee. My question is I reallllllly want to close my capital one and transfer the balance but I'm confused on how it will work once balance is transferred do I close the card then?? I will pay it to a zero balance before transfer. Thanks to all who answer

You lost me 

You want to do a BT to your new card correct?

Why would you pay the CAP1 to zero then?

Forgive me if I missed something

Ok got you now 

No do the BT but be prepared to pay the minimum if it doesn't go through when you expect it to..

So monitor your CAP1 account so that you know when it gets moved. If it has not moved by the time CAP1 due date..... pay the minimum payment

a BT Is transferring whatever is on the card to your new one so once that happens it will already be 0 providing that you are transferring the full amount and not partial.

Once the transfer is done, the account you transferred from will generate a statement with -0- balance and will report zero.

 

It will not automatically get closed though.
