    Credit Limit doesn't cover balance transfer

    Credit Limit doesn't cover balance transfer 11th Jul 18 at 10:46 PM
    I have a credit card with a large limit. I've applied for a 0% balance transfer credit card, which i have been accepted for, but the credit limit does not cover the amount i want to balance transfer.

    Do i apply for a second 0% balance transfer or do i just pay work with the lower limit? I'm worried that i'll now be paying more per month for the 2 cards than what i am paying just now on 1 with interest.

    Any suggestions/ advice is greatly appreciated.

    You won't be paying more - how could that be?

    BT as much as you can to the 0% card which will bring down the min payment on the interest incurring one. Pay the min to the 0% one and throw everything you have to clear the one not on 0%
