Requesting Lower APR on Subprime Cards

[ Edited ]
Anybody ever had any luck with this? The cards I'm referencing in particular are First Premier, CorTrust, & Orchard.

Also, I will be doing this for my girlfriend's card as well, which is with First Financial (don't really know if that is subprime or not).

Thanks for your input! Smiley Happy


Edit: I should mention that I have been with each of these companies for at least 2 years.

I have seen HSBC lower APR's after a few months of clean payment history.
