It has been a "website issue" for about 6 months now. They completed the refresh of a lot of other cards in that time frame.
I'm going to guess that a lot of SM cardholders min/maxed their spending and Barclay wasn't getting the return on swipes that they expected. Kinda like the original Cash+ that people used solely for the 5% "bill pay." It's all in the cycle of MF; Find great new card, everyone applies, people abuse the rewards, it gets struck down by the nerf bat, people complain.
Which cracks me up, considering the very people moaning the loudest are the ones who abuse rewards the most, generally.
