6.9 is the bird in the hand but 7.9 is "in the bush" (not W)
but its tempting to try for.

IMHO, I think you will have other options coming that might even be better. It sounds like you are getting these solitation on a fairly regular basis. Ignoring a few does wonders. I know that I stopped applying for the transfers and I got more offers. Some were even the big 0% for so many months.

If you can keep paying a low 6.9 for six more months, you may be able to improve your credit rating to get a better offer. Even if you have to pay 9.9 for awhile, a better offer will probably come.
