I am trying to consolidate my credit card debt
I have $14,000 credit card debt in closed Chase credit cards. Credit Karma is recommending Citi Diamond Preferred. I have excellent credit and was approved for $8400. How do I transfer the remaining Chase cards if my limit is only $8400?????

So if you have 14,000 in debt on multiple cards...then you use that transfer amount to pay off one or two of those cards....but only IF the new card has a better interest rate than the old card. 

The remaining balance is something you should take to your bank and discuss a consolidation loan.  Really, that's your best avenue...in my opinion.
