Best Credit Card for Balance Transfer

Hello all, first time poster in this area.
We have a high interest(19.75%)credit card and are looking to do a balance transfer to save some interest. Whats the best option out there.

Also if I transfer the balance out of TD into CIBC for example, does the TD acnt automatically get closed down? Or will the balance go to 0 and remain open

It's the same as paying your credit card using a bank account. You don't have to transfer all of your balance, or you can transfer more than what you owe and have negative balance.

MBNA has their 0% for 12 months (1% Balance Transfer Fee charged immediately). If you are not able to pay it off in 12 months, apply for a new account, rinse repeat.

Or you maybe better off applying for a Line of Credit.
