Re: What Credit Cards should I pay off?

Highest APR should be paid off first so you have more money leftover to pay the remaining cards.
You can pay off Cap 1, Amex, Discover and most of Chase on the first month (finish paying it on Feb unless you have saved up money to pay it off on Jan).
You are at $38610 / $46300 or 83.4% of overall utility, assuming you put the full amount in your new util will be 44.5%. If your overall credit picture is looking good you can try to get a card with 0% balance transfer so you pay the maximum amount to the principal and save some money (wait for the cards to report the new $0 balance). If you can't get the card then you should apply the freed up money from the paid off cards to pay off the remaining BOA and Citi cards.
