People on creditboard forum might be more apt at answering your question.

Generally speaking i would say pay off the debt you have. Find a way to pay off your delinquent line of credit and see if you can work out with the bank whether they will remove the delinquency if you pay it off in full. Use your discover card but pay off most of the balance (leave $10) before statement hits each day.

The fact that you have a lot of student loan debt should not damage your credit as long as you are making the payments on time.

Probably no reason to apply for another card since you do have one card and an installment loan (your student loan) that you can grow. Plus you probably would not be approved for anything else with such low scores. You could try to get a store card with shopping card trick but I do not get more than one or two of those.

It's the baddies holding you back - working on those should be your priority.

The Lake Michigan Credit Union Prime Platinum Visa boasts one of the lowest ongoing APRs out there: right now, it’s 6.25% variable.  The card has no balance transfer fee, so if you need to carry your debt for substantially more than 15 months, this can be a better pick than the Chase Slate.

Don't know if mentioned before...but Navy federal offers me a 12 month 0% and no fee BT about once per year, usually in April. It's only been when i have a zero balance.

This is on the Go Rewards Visa. Chase Slate and Discover It have been the only other no fee 0% offers I've had in the last couple years.

Spark appears to have a business 1.5% cash reward credit card with $0 for balance transfers and 0% on purchases through June 2015. $100 one-time bonus on $3,000 purchases in the first 3 months.  Link 

edited to clarify BT does charge interest

It looks like the balance transfer fee is, indeed, $0.  However, the the balance transfer APR is apparently "12.9%16.9% or 20.9%, based on your creditworthiness."  Link.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
