SO would you rec paying the 2700 off first or just attacking rh 28k starting now?

The rates are pretty close. If you are insistent that you need to have one cardit card available for use, it's not gong to cost you that much more to pay off the 13% card before the 15% card. That will give you a card with no debt on it that you can pay in full every month.

But, it's ultimately up to you, and what will motivate you. Do you want to save a few bucks? Or have a paid off card earlier?
