Paying off CC balance (2 part question)
I currently had a CC with USAA at 23% at $2,231 of [$2,600]. I did a transfer balance per suggestion of CK and got a 0% APR/15mo. with Chase Freedom but only a $1,500. limit was allowed. I transferred a majority of that ($1,425) to the Chase due to the 0% APR. How will this effect my credit? Does a balance transfer show as a type of pay-down of the USAA card which + effects it but - effects it due to being 90% used on the Chase? Thanks for the input
