Transfer Credit Card Balances
This is probably a silly question, but I thought I would ask anyway….
I recently acquired two new credit cards – an AMEX Delta Skymiles card and a Chase Sapphire Reserve card. The Chase card gives bonus points after a $5000 spend in the first three months, and the AMEX card gives bonus points after a $5000 spend in the first three months. Could I charge $5000+ in transactions on one card, and then use the Transfer Credit Card Balance feature to transfer the balance to the other card? In that way, I could earn bonus points on both cards with just one $5000 spend. In other words, can you earn points by transferring a credit card balance?
TIA for your help!
