Why does CreditKarma say transfer credit card balance from a 8.5% to a 20%+ rate card?
I currently ow about $27,000 on a credit card with an 8.5% interest rate. Credit Karma "calculates my credit card interest rate at 19% and then suggests that I transfer the Balance to a credit card with an interest rate of about 23%. I cannot understand why they would make that kind of calculation and that suggestion.
