This is an opportunity cost, which is difficult to value.You can do some back of the envelope calculations, but I suspect that unless you are close to retirement age, you will do better, long term, to finance the roth. It's hard to beat decades of compounding for free.If you have a spreadsheet, it's not hard to do a rough estimate -- just assume that if you pay the credit cards first, the money will be invested outside a Roth (It will, right?) for the same return.Crazyfred: ) Smile -- it makes people think you're either happy or crazy
