Barclay Application Status How to Check Your Application Status

Chase Credit Card Application Status Check & Reconsideration Phone Line / Number

I just applied for the JetBlue Plus credit card and, unfortunately, wasn't approved instantly. What I saw next was the dreaded “your application is being reviewed…it can take up to 10 days” message. So, you probably don't want to wait up to 10 long days right. You have a couple options, first check the status online. Or, call the reconsideration phone number (which they do not provide).

What to Say to the Barclay Credit Analysts

My conversation was very quick. I mentioned to the credit analyst that the JetBlue card that I had just applied for was pending and if he could check on it. After providing my information, he put me on hold to check my application. I found out I was approved when the analyst returned to the call. No further questions! Afterwards, the analyst mentioned the card will arrive in about 7 business days.

Unfroze credit at all three agencies, then spent next hour in call center hell (mostly in India) trying to find the person/department needed to run credit check on existing application. After half a dozen calls and more transfers, Googled and found this article. Two minutes on the phone, credit check run and card approved. NO idea why they make it impossible to find this department, but THANKS!
