He's had the account since '08. His scores at the time were 720 ish. Yes, he requested the reduction.

it could be the age of his account. that may be why I am not able to lower my interest rate.

Re: lowering capital one standard apr by request

I had mine lowered as well; this was years ago though so I don't recall the details too well.

 

I had called in to ask for a CLI (inquired to make sure it'd be a soft pull before they checked) and they could not give me one.

 

Asked if they might be able to lower the APR instead since they couldn't give me a CLI and they did.

 

Edit: I think I may have mentioned that I used my BoA more because it had a higher limit and lower APR.
