Credit card debt consolidation/effect on credit score
My credit card utilization has gone up quite a bit recently because of a new sales job that doesn't offer an all expenses paid company car, and I also have to front the money for all expenses (1-2k a month). I have an opportunity to consolidate my credit card debt and just pay on my primary credit account. However, this would max out one credit account and empty the other. The reason I would do this is because I would pay 0% interest on the amount I transfer from one account to the other. How will this affect my credit score?
