Balance transfer part of a car loan
Hi guys and gals I had a few questions about the Discover it CC with 18 month 0% APR on balance transfers. I want to transfer part of the Car Loan I have with my Credit Union to the Discover It CC. My questions are as follows 1) Will they allow me to do this(My bank and discover)? 2) Will it count as a Balance transfer or will it count as a cash advance/purchase. I wish to pay off my car loan a bit early but also raise my credit score and amount of credit available to me. I know that payment history counts for a lot so I figure I can kill 2 birds with 1 stone by transferring a portion of the car loan onto the CC, reducing the amount on the loan and also allowing me to have a balance on the CC that I can pay down and not worry about interest(for 18 months). I'm aware of the balance transfer fee and am able to pay it. I already have a CC I use as my main card so I would not be making any purchases on the Discover CC.
