Default Re: What Should I Pay Off First

I think it depends on your own personal preference...and the interest rates. I would pay off the one with the highest interest rate first, then go down from there. After all, that's the majority of what you're paying monthly!

I would pay the Sears, Discover and then the Master Card. Smallest balances first so that you will feel like you are making "traction" in paying off your cards.

Always pay the debt that is costing you most off first.
Also, have an some extra job to lessen your debt.

I have different opinion to share and i feel it is better to pay mastercard first otherwise, it will put you in more debt and then paying the amount of sears and later discover.
