This is where I stand right now. The only debt that I am currently paying interest on right now are my student 
loan debt (19k - 2.625% interest) and the mortgage (approx 464k at 2.94% interest).

I can continue to pay off the consumer debt, snowballing until its wiped out - roughly September/October. 
Or I can slow down a bit and pay extra off of the student loan or mortgage and pay off the credit cards 
until the very last day that the 0% runs out on each extending my debt payoff by an additional four months. 
I am leaning towards making progress on the student loan or possibly the mortgage. We are in year 3.5 of a 
5 year ARM. I would like to refinance once we get the loan out of jumbo territory to get the best rate. The 
mortgage is roughly 3700 (PIT). We have been paying 5k/month to get to <417k to refinance.

Also, one side question, if the 0% runs until the last day of the billing cycle 7/20/2015, does that mean 
I have to pay the balance off on 7/20/2015 or does it mean that if I do not pay the balance on the next bill 
in August, I will have to pay interest?
