That is no longer possible since people abused that privilege years ago, bouncing payments back and forth and avoiding actually paying their debts.

Do some reading on "credit card utilization". This is the only issue credit wise that you may encounter, if you max out the card you are transferring to, it could ding scores temporarily until you get it paid down. If you can save some decent money, don't worry about scores. Check to make sure that your low interest card allows for balance transfers and read all the fine print about what will happen if you do it. With Chase bank for example, you may lose the grace period on purchases if you do a balance transfer.
