CiTi BT ??

 I was approved for a 2k limit for the Citi thank you card , i havent tried to call and see if i could get my limit bumped up anymore ...Question is i have a Walmart card with a 3500 limit and a balance of 3k on it atm . I was thinking of doing the BT for as much as i can for the no intrest rate for 15 months ...the thing is will Citi look down on me for almost maxing out the card already for a BT ? Anyone's 2 cents is welcome pls and thx !

Don't worry too much and ask for the CLI. Explain to them it's for a BT. They might do another HP though.

Citi seems to be the creditor that doesn't mind a balance. I would try to get to 500 or more than what u need. Another HP may be required but if you need more credit to save u money over the long run then it may be worth it.

You shouldn't have a problem. When I applied for my Simplicity, I indicated that I was interested in a balance transfer, told them how much and which account. The CL was less than the BT amount I requested and CITI (not me) chose to max out the card for the balance transfer. I had quite a chuckle when they did that. CL was 2k and I think the BT brought the balance to 1996.00 which included the BT fee.

Re: CiTi BT ??

Good luck, Trigga. For your own good, try to get out of debt during the BT period. Set a plan and a budget and stick to it. If you just keep moving the debt around you will end up paying way too much in interest and BT fees and you won't end up getting anywhere closer to your financial goals. Work on that debt before doing anything else with credit! Except maybe this CLI.
