Timing of Application

I have a MBNA cc with balance £3090 interest free until 20/5/2010. I can apply for an Egg cc with interest free BT until 31/5/2011.
Any advice on when to apply and when to organise BT.
Thanks

    If the Egg BT is until 31/5/2011 regardless whether you apply today or next week then you'd just apply for it today.

    If you were doing full stoozing then you'd do the BT today, keep the money in your stoozepot until nearer 20/05/10 and then pay it in full nearer the time.

    So, do Egg allow BT to bank accounts?

    Best to send them a secure message to check for your specific account. A positive balance on Egg Money to your account is normally done without a fee, but some people recently have had problems with them.
