Chase has offered me zero-percent balance tranfer checks again, with a one-time usage fee of $50. It worked just fine last year, so I figure I should take the money where I can get it. I've passed up a couple of similar offers in the last few months, mostly because I didn't like something in the fine print. Policies at Chase haven't changed since last year — at least not as far as I can tell from digging up the previous offer's paperwork in my files.
I wrote a more detailed piece here, detailing some of the perils of such an undertaking, if anyone cares.
Should have the $8400+ tucked away in my ING account and earning interest by late this week.
