Re: Transfer Bal?

I would just PIF and close it if you don't want it anymore. I wouldn't BT that small of a balance.

Re: Transfer Bal?

i would suggest just paying if off as soon as possible without transferring and then close it if you want.  Unless you are interested in a Venture or other prime Capitol One card in the future, there's really not much need to continue your relationship with them, now that you have cards from Amex, Boa, and Chase.  I would close Capitol One and focus on those three.

Pay it off and leave it open without using it. After the annual fee hits, call and ask to get it waived. If they will not, you can close the card at that point and you won't have to pay the annual fee as long as you haven't used it.
