Barclay reconsideration line: 866-408-4064, Mon-Fri 8AM - 5PM EST.
The 24-hour number is 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.
Personal and biz didn't combine

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

Barclays has a 6/24 rule similar to chase 5/24. Not hardcoded like chase though.

after 5 years, I applied for new credit cards yesterday. Stopped doing it due to high spend req that I cna no longer meet like used to some years ago.
went for SW and

I went got Barclay aadvantage business card. instant approval, but I think I  removed the " employee authorized user" part to get 10k extra points.
I don't want to call the lending dept to add AU only to be grilled about my business.
The regular customer care dept says since it is new card , they can't even see in their system.

wait to get the new card and then call customer care to add the AU? The app says I have 30 days to do it.

applied for new barclay card... no instant decision. searched app status was declined... called recon and was told that i previously had  the card closed in nov 2018 and therefore the system automatically rejected the app. cant have had card in last 24 months. no credit pull. no override. no reconsideration.
