I opened a Citibank MasterCard account in December to take advantage of a 0% BT offer. I paid it off a few weeks ago, about a month before the 0% rate expired.

This week I got a "pre-approved" offer for a new Citibank card, with no transfer fee and 0% interest through November 2003. I currently have all my remaining debt on a 0% card that is good through June 2003, and have plans to have it paid off by March. But it would be great to transfer some of it to a 0-until-November card, just to have a little breathing room.

Here's my question: Will Citibank open the new account for me, even though I have already accepted one of their 0% offers? And would it make any difference if I cancelled the existing account?

Thanks for your help.
