This is my first posting here, so excuse any naive questions. I have (in my eyes) an enormous amount of debt that I've finally decided to chip away at - student loans, about three credit cards, car, etc. Although I am paying a little towards everything, I am trying to concentrate on the credit cards for now. I recently transferred the bulk of my credit card debt to several different 3.9% apr credit cards. The low interest rate is good for 9 months to a year. My question is: is it better to pay off equal amounts on all three cards, thus reducing the debt a little at a time for each? Or would I be better off, paying the cards off one at a time? Or does it matter?

Thanks for any help!
