Your numbers above look pretty close, but keep in mind I'll actually have TWO large balances in the mid-14k range. Both won't be gone in 8 months. Sigh. I'll still be paying CC debt after these promo rates jump. I just hope to have overall CC debt as a single digit (x 1000) by then. If that happens, I won't be as hostile about paying some interest.

Well, if you can get the one that's charging you interest paid off in 8 months, then you'll still have another few months to pay your BT down before it starts charging interest, right? So, you should be under $10k at that point, maybe even closer to $5k or $6k.

So, maybe that should be your next goal, is to get the one that's charging you interest paid off in 8 months...

Since you already have your e-fund up to $3k, if you get a stimulus check, you can use that toward the debt.
