I just got a bunch of those promotional check things in the mail. You know the type, 'Send this to your other CC company's to transfer to us for an introductory rate of XXXX%'

So anyhow, I was thinking. The rate they say the checks will give me is lower than my current rate with them. What'd happen if I filled out one of the checks, and mailed it in to them as payment?

Anyone ever tried this? I figure the worst they can do is refuse it, so I just might give it a shot.
