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
you can finally fax documents to Barclays the number is 866-836-6959

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.

Applied for Miles and More+Arrival, Arrival was approved M & M was denied because "OUR RECORDS SHOW YOU HAVE ALREADY ESTABLISHED THE MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE NUMBER OF THIS PRODUCT".
Called in and was told that can only have it once in 24 months, Any truth in it?

IME once they deny for 6/24 you wonít get approved no matter how many times you HUCA. The part thatís not hard coded is that it doesnít always trigger. I just had this the other week with them. Wife was well over 6/24, approved for business and personal.

I tried a 2bm for the Arival and Jet Blue Biz.
Was approved for the arrival and pending for the JB Biz.
I checked my application status (link in wiki)
And it only shows me that I was approved for the Arrival with no mention of the JB biz card.
Is that normal? Any way for me to check the status on the JB biz?

I believe the link is just for personal cards, I personally have never been able to pull up pending business apps via the link.

Thanks.
I got the link in the pending email so would think it should work for business.
