I received my overpayment refund from Credit Card #3. Now, the question is … who should get it?
Credit Card #2 appears to be the logical choice. There’s $22,041.93 sitting on that card at 16.49% (the highest rate of all of my cards). You may be wondering why I am even contemplating another choice.
What I am thinking of doing is using my refunds and paying off Credit Card #4. As they have always done in the past, they have offered great balance transfer offers (usually around 2.9 – 4.9% for 6-12 months) when my balance is low. They “should” do that again if the card is paid off.
So, the two scenarios are
$8,000 at 4.9%
$14,000 at 16.9%.
$8,000 at 14.9%
$14,000 at 16.9%
But what if Credit Card #4 doesn’t offer a great balance transfer rate? Is it a good enough chance to take?
Any advice for the debt-fighting newbie?
