Balance transfers aren't allowed from a Discover card to another Discover card, regardless of who's account it is.

So I have at present time:
Discover More...3500 balance that's on 0% ending December 2012.
Citi Simplicity...1k balance. Just got card in April and card IS AMAZING! 0% Purchases & BT's all through December of 2013! They don't penalize for being late...but why be late anyway?
My girlfriend just got a preapproved offer from Discover for the More that offers 0% purchases and BT's (from date of 1st transfer, for transfers under this offer that post to account by 12/10/12) for 15 months.
She has stellar credit when I helped her get hers from annualcreditreport.com....hovering around 720-735 for all scores.
Question is, I am confident that I can pay off my 3.5k balance on my Discover More before December...but just curious- does anyone know if I would be able yo transfer my remaining balance from MY discover more to HERS when she applies and gets her limit? Will Discover honor a BT from my Discover More to HER discover More?
Thanks to all who respond!
If I remember correctly, most CCCs ban that in the fine print (can't transfer balance from our card to our card, type of thing).
