I folded it into my other Barclay cards when they declined to lower the interest rate for me, which probably just had to do with the fact that they were starting to phase the card out, since they were more than happy to lower the interest rate on my LL Bean card.

IIRC, the Barclays Rewards Mastercard was stuck/frozen at its 25% apr, or whatever it was, with no opportunity to lower the rate.  I cant recall anybody successfully getting Barclay to lower the rate on that card.  It was marketed towards rebuilders, and it remained as such, as far as apr's are concerned.  I'm sure somebody will correct me, if I'm wrong, but that was my assumption all along on there apr policy.

They did it for me about a year and a half ago, even gave me a promotional 0% also.

They lowered mine as well a couple of weeks ago.
Got some pruning to do... No more new cards!
