CC juggling

Oy! I know I have no one to blame but myself, but I think I am in a bit of a pickle.

First, I reported a couple posts ago that on Tuesday I applied for a new CC with a 0% interest rate on balance transfers. When I filled out the application, I put in the account number for the card that I wanted a balance transferred from, my UWCU Visa card. OK, at this point no big deal.

Then, yesterday DH suggested that we try to simply upgrade our UWCU card to one with rewards as was advertised on our credit union website. Notice is said UPGRADE, not REPLACE. OK, so I call and they upgrade my account, but they have to issue me a new card and a new number. Hmmmm...

Basically if my balance transfer doesn't go through before the new number is issued, we may have a big problem. So, this morning I called the new CC company to ask when the balance transfer would occur. After some confusion, I found out that the balance transfer is set as pending until I activate the card. Should get the new card sometime in the next few days. In the meantime, they are sending me some paperwork to sign for the upgraded Visa card so if I delay that a few days until I get the new card I should be OK.

How do I do these things to myself?
