"I also sold some stock this week (it was time to sell), so we have $21,609.09 in transit (accounted for in the non-retirement investment total above). With that, we're going to retire the family loan at 5.5% and send the rest to Chase 3. I never got around to answering AJ's post last month, but the current family loan is from the emotional-baggage-attached side of the family, so we want to get rid of it asap."

Why don't you take the extra proceeds and pay off the AT&T Universal card? I know it's at 2.9%, but one less payment is one less payment.
You could retire the family loan, the AT&T Universal card, and still make a sizeable dent in Chase 2 or 3.

*Don't forget about the tax ramifications from selling stocks*.
