You can check your application status online here.

Barclay reconsideration line: 866-408-4064, Mon-Fri 8AM - 5PM EST.
The 24-hour number is (866-951-1437) 866-408-4064
New 24 hour number is 866-205-5973

Based on the phone reps, an application usually remains in the system for 90 days, during which you can ask for a reconsideration.
However, if 30 days have passed, it will incur another hard pull.

There have been a few reports of Barclay pulling credit again when reconsidering - even when specifically asked not to.
Make sure to explicitly tell the rep that you don't want another credit pull. The benefit of such action would be that if later you see they did pull your credit you can call up and speak to a manager and have the pulls removed (based on first-hand accounts from this thread).

If you want to guarantee that you don't get another pull, freeze your credit report.

While Barclay recon reps are usually very tough to deal with, there have been sporadic reports of them reconsidering by reallocating credit-line from other cards. Additionally, there are a few reports indicating success with the 3BM.

Barclay recon reps take notes of each phone call and subsequent reps usually regurgitate the previous rep's reply.

Random: see this great article about negotiating tactics with Customer Service Reps.

Thanks a lot for the advice, I called and they relocate the credit from my AA card to this one.  Do you have the phone number for the business card? because they say they can look up the business card!

Wiki says to always call right away but I would wait if you hear 7-10 day message.

Idk the answer to your question, but I have been auto-declined from Barclay's, and they never even pulled my credit. (It was for bad relationship...)

You could have them pull manually.

I applied for the arrival and got a pending. Called recon and they request I mail in SS card, drivers license, plus a utility statement in my name & address.  Is there anyway around this, call again? Or is this pretty much what I'd have to do to get this card?
