Before I make an attempt, I was wondering if anyone has had success getting their Sears Card (not the Sears MasterCard) interest rate lowered. I only have $150 on the card that will be paid off this month and I don't want to close it since it's one of my oldest accounts and it's in good standing.

Do they still have just a Sears Card? My fiance had one, and a few years back they auto-converted it into a Mastercard. The current rate on the Mastercard is something like 11%, and he's got a balance transfer on it that's riding at 7.99%. Maybe you should call up and see about converting it to the Mastercard.
