Normally it is at least 6 mths of on time payments before a CC will lower your interest rates back down (never hurts to try at 3 mths).  Just be honest with them and keep making on time and above min. payments.  Good Luck vicki

After 6 months, how much should you expect that they lower it?
 
Will you ever get it back to where it started?
