I would not transfer a 3.99% auto loan to a 2.99% credit card. You already have an extremely low fixed rate, leave it alone. Besides the fact that you will max out your credit card and not have it available for emergencies, you would hurt your FICO score. Assuming your loan is for 5 years, the interest savings is only $363 for 3.99 vs 2.99.
And no. Penfed will not allow the transfer. You would have to do some manuevering.
And what good is having your title? Do you intend to use it as collateral for something?

i refinanced my loan from 7.49 with 36 mnths left a monthly payment of 381 to penfed 3.99 60mths payment of 251 i also plan on hopefully purchasing a home later this year, but will be done fha so the credit score is not that big of an issue, last i checked i was 739 i can see myself going down to 700 ish which is fine i will pay heavily on it. i can transfer to citi if they give me 0% for like 6 months then send it back to penfed, i dunno i am just wondering on the benefit, but a savings of 363 is nice too..
