I have 2 Credit cards, one from OPUS and one from HBOS.I have 6k of debt on HBOS and 2k of debt on OPUS. Their APRs r really high with OPUS just deciding to hike it up even when i paid on time!! Anyway, I have automatically received a credit limit increase from HBOS to 10.9k. They have also given me a Balance transfer offer of 0% interest for 9 months.I plan to to transfer 2k from OPUS to HBOS for the offer.Afterwards I am gonna do a Credit card shuffle to get more out of the 0% offer. what I do is transfer 2k back to OPUS and then transfer it back to HBOS.I know I am gonna pay 6% transfer rate, 3% for each transfer but the question is will I be getting the 0% offer for 9 months if I do this?

    Have OPUS offered you anything ever? They didnt care less when I closed my ex Citi card.I would look at other card providers rather than owe OPUS anything.

    good luck
