Yes, its my day off, the 15th is payday; I just paid off GEICO (for the next 6 months) with my ing fund for it, and I'd like to share my credit card debt list for some suggestions.
I did try to put this revised version in the Snowball, but for some reason since I last worked on it in May or so my system won't open it and locks up. (I really wanted to see how it had changed since the previous version too...)

2 cards I pay off every time don't really count,
the credit union card with 30 or 40 $ a month (internet, long, sunday papers subsc, etc.)
& the chase Freedom card (Gas with rebates, groceries with rebates, whatever with rebates, as well as Upromise from the rare elusive vendor that it works with. And big junk like Car repair, tires, flights, car rental, etc.) (about $900 this month)
the Olde Debt:

C: 13580 at .99 % (I think) till December; $200 month min;
fees come to around $12 a month

S: 9390 at 1.99 till either July (that's now?) or September 6.
Minimum around $180
AFter that, up up up (15+?) I will call 800 number;don't trust site.
fees come to around $16 a month

U: 6200 at 4.99 for LIFE. $134 min, but I snowball it.
fees come to around $27 a month

D: 8840.23, 1.90 for LIFE as long as I make a little charge.
(hence the .23 of diesel fuel I got this month.)
fees come to around $15 a month

Card C is actually my ING Slush fund; I decided even with a BT fee (was it 50, I think so) I'll come out ahead with the 3% interest.
When I decided to flip another short term BT to card S I decided I'd take the 9390 from it, and hope for another BT around xmas from someone.
The "freedom" card tempted me with another BT offer, but I so missed those rebates on purchases when I had my last one and was stuck using a points card that got me back a measly $25 visa bonus(oh Thanks, MBNA!).

ok, I think its time I post this & see what comments you all have.

And yes I've missed posting here. My'new' job is one year old on July 16 but it is not a place with computers. IT is different. I bathe & change guys. (and follow the State Pension Star...)
