0% BT credit cards

Are there still any 0% or just low balance transfer credit cards out there anymore? I have a FICO of 686.  I have 8 cards totaling 28K in credit card debt, but one card of 11K is going up to 24% in 2 months.  What to do or where to turN? 

Anyone?

You want to try a credit union. But I don't know of  any CU that offer 0% BT.  However, they do offer smaller BT rates for the life of the balance.  Try PenFed.

Addison Avenue CU has a 3.9% BT through 12/2010 with no BT fees, and 5.24% regular rate.

 

PenFed has a 4.99% BT for 24 months with $100 max fee, regular rate of 13.25%.

 

PSECU has a 3.9% BT through 12/2010 no BT fees, regular rate 9.9%.

I would also look at a CU or possibly National City.  They pull TU as far as I know.

 

IMHO with 28k  of CC debt, I would look into a DMP program which would lower your interest rates.
