    Balance transfer when cancelling card

    Balance transfer when cancelling card 5th Dec 12 at 2:05 PM

    Apologies if this is covered elsewhere but I wondered if anyone knew whether you can make a balance transfer to another card when on the phone cancelling the current one with the debt.

    I know this is awkwardly convoluted but I'm having a dispute with my issuer and the only way I can see to get any action is by cancelling the card.

    Clearly you'd normally do this by applying for a new one, transferring the balance to them then closing the old account.

    What I'm wondering is if I call my issuer, say I'm closing the account, they'll ask how I want to clear the balance, is there a way I can then give them the details of the new account to make a transfer?

    (I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but thought I'd check!)
