Can I make a balance transfer back to my bank using this method?

I have a Chase bank credit card with a high balance on it.
Just opened a new Chase credit card today with free interest for a year.
I was told I cannot transfer my old balance onto the new card within the same bank.
I was wondering if it is possible to transfer this balance to another bank and then back to my Chase

I was told I cannot transfer my old balance onto the new card within the same bank.
I was wondering if it is possible to transfer this balance to another bank and then back to my Chase Bank onto my new card so I can take advantage of the free interest for one year is this possible and is this legal?

Sounds shady
Casey Y:
Should have opened an account with another bank and transferred the balance.
Ann:
you would have to open ANOTHER credit card and with 2 already and one has a high balance, chances are you won't get another card. Your score just dropped due to the new card and is probably marginal considering the high balance owed. You should have checked this out before you opened the second Chase account. You might have to close it before you can open another

Sounds like you can. But check the fine print for any "gotchas". For example, you can't do a balance transfer from one VISA card to another VISA card, then to another VISA card even if all three cards are issued by different banks. Balance transfers cannot be made between card brands that are owned by the same credit card issuer. Citibank issues some store branded credit cards. You might not be able to transfer a store credit card balance to a card issued by Citibank. Citibank underwrites Best Buy and Sears cards. You might not be able to transfer those balances to a Citibank Master Card. You have to read the fine print and ask questions and have the banker prove their answer. What they say you can do and what you really can do may be in conflict.

probably yes
