After being debt free for a few months my truck's transmission decides to crap out. Just a few months out of the warranty, luckily I can do the work myself but I don't have the cash laying around to purchase a new transmission for 3-4k. I have two cards with 0%, but they are low limits.
I opened a few new accounts in May and one in July. Should I transfer the entire balance to one card or split it up evenly to citi and discover? I don't want to risk aa from the new cards.

Personally i would transfer it to one...depending on how close youll be to ur limit...paying one card would be easier and just pay it down to avoid spooking anyone.
+1 agreed but get UTL down so as not to seem maxed out on the BT card ASAP

I'd split it to keep utilization down because overall your utilization should be ok. 0 % offers can be great.
I have a quick bt transfer question. Do the cards that you're paying off using the balance transfers ever suffer aa? I'd like to take advantage of a 0% offer but don't want to mess up existing cards because I have uses for them as they are points cards, just higher interest.
