If i activate my new credit card will i need to transfer my balance over or will they have already done that?

I have a capital one credit card, and last month they sent out an email saying they were doing away with that one and putting out a new one called the Journey card and that i would get my new card in the mail soon. I still have a balance on my old one, will it just transfer over automatically once i activate my new card or will i have to get them to do it? They didn't really make any of that clear in the email or letter i got with the card.

Call them and ask. They'll probably put that amount on the new card, but they'll confirm that for you.

I have had this happen many times and the balance is automatically transferred for you.

I've had this happen more than once, and they just transfer it all over for you, exactly like if you got a new credit card because your old one expired.
