If you want a lower interest card and your credit is good, you can seek out a card with a lower interest rate. If the credit card company raises the interest rate even though you are paying the balance each month, then find a new card.

And then watch your credit scores fall due to A) inquiries on your credit history and B) the average age of your accounts goes down due to brand-new cards in your wallet.
