Zero Balance Transfer card recs?

Hello all. I am considering opening a new credit card account with a zero balance transfer policy. My criteria for a card are, besides the zero balance transfer: low fee for transferring balance, must report available credit to credit bureaus, and a decent reputation for customer service. I have a FICO score of 703 and am working on improving that. Getting a zero balance transfer card will help me pay down my current balances faster, plus I just found out that my primary card company is not reporting my available credit to credit bureaus, so is hurting my FICO score. I have two credit cards now (Visa and Discover) with a combined credit limit of almost 20,000 and combined balances of just under 10,000. I want to pay them off completely by June 2008. Thanks in advance for any tips or recommendations!

Welcome!
 
There are lots of websites which list available cards sorted by the features you want.  Two of them are http://www.bankrate.com/brm/rate/cc_home.asp and http://www.cardratings.com.  Perhaps someone else can chime in and recommend the other sites I can't remember.  Good luck!

Goodluck finding a o% card now. Articles on the net say banks are scaling down the 0% cards but are now offering more around the 5.9% range. I'm sure they are out there but you'll need to look hard to get them.

Get an AMEX Blue.  0% APR for 15 months and 4.99% for the life of the balance transfer.  You could do AMEX Clear with your score, but it is only 0%APR for 12 months and 5.99% for the life of the balance transfer.
