Recommend a GOOD 0% Credit Card

I'm looking for a card that will allow me to do a BT @ 0% for 15-24 months.

 

I have 0 inquiries over the last 2 years. Good income. My only baddies are (2) 30 day lates a bit over 2 years ago.

 

My FICO scores are as follows...

 

EQ - 728

TU - 732

EX - 750+ (various FAKO sources...)

 

Let me know if you have any questions that will help you provide a constructive response.

 

Thanks!

Goal: 700 and an Amex Card!

Citi Driver's Edge - $20,100 limit ($13K balance)

Chase Freedom - $20,000 limit ($2k balance)

BR Visa - $7600 limit ($0 balance)

Credit Union Visa - $7,500 limit ($5K balance)

Sears Card - $4,600 limit ($0 balance)

Electronics Store Card - $4,300 limit ($1k balance)

 

I'm looking to transfer the Citi Driver's Edge and Credit Union balances to a single 0% card and pay it off within 12-18 months...

 

Also, related question... is it  possible to transfer a balance from one card to another from the same credit card issuer? For example, can I transfer a balance from one Citi card to another Citi card?

Re: Recommend a GOOD 0% Credit Card

It's going to be difficult to get a starting limit to accomodate a BT for those balances...

however,

Barclay's does have several 0% offers for 15 months( Priceline Visa, etc.) and so does Chase (Slate/Freedom Visa)

 

Chase and Barlcay's are also good with recons & "matching limits"

 

so imo, you could try those, but it's a ymmv situation with the credit limits if you're trying to transfer that many of your balances over.

 

I would AVOID CITI... they have been rude to me any time I've called them, and I've NEVER spoken to an American rep ANY time I've called them.

 

Even if their BT offers are good.. they just seem quite surly.

 

Best of luck!

Re: Recommend a GOOD 0% Credit Card

OH! And most creditors will NOT let you xfer balances between accounts with the same creditor. However, if you have a BT check offer opportunity, you could deposit into your checking, then pay it off as they cannot control how you use "cash" depositied into your person checking....

 

 

You have great score btw!!! :smileyhappy:

Re: Recommend a GOOD 0% Credit Card

Why don't you try Discover. They usually have a good 0% transfer period. Also the Barclay Rewards card...I think it is about 15-18 months or so

 

Good luck!

Re: Recommend a GOOD 0% Credit Card

I agree with Barclays rewards, and is also recon for higher CL if they don't match your others.

My citi Diamond preferred has an 18 month 0% for BT and balances! You also get concierge, not a bad card at all!
