PFD, how much to offer?

I owe about $5,000 on 2 credit cards, and 4 store cards. All have CAs involved and all show as CO on my CR.  I don't have enough $ to PIF right now.  I want them gone, so want to PFD and GW the OCs. 


What is the best way to do this?  If you offer a % on a PFD, will you be less likely to get a GW from the OC? 


If I need to PIF, should I go for the smaller amounts first to get the most listings off my CR then save up for the last 1 or 2?


Any help is HUGELY appreciated!
