How to check Barclays credit card application status
You can check your Barclay credit card application status both online and by telephone.
Barclaycard has an automated telephone line that you can call to check the status of your recent credit card application.
To check your Barclay credit card application status call 888-232-0780. You will be asked for the last 4 digits of your credit card number. If you do not say anything and stay on the line you will then be given the option to say “Check on an application”. You can then enter your social security number and zip code to check your status through the automated telephone system. (Update: The automated telephone line is not allowing you to check your application status)

Denied or Decision Still Pending? Call the Barclays Reconsideration Line
If your application was denied, you can call the Barclay reconsideration line and ask them to reconsider their decision.
Even if your credit card application is still pending, you can call the reconsideration line for an immediate decision.
The Barclaycard reconsideration line phone number is 866-408-4064 (8 am till midnight) and you will be connected to an analyst.
If Barclaycard is unwilling to extend you more credit and you already have other Barclays cards, you might be approved if you ask the representative to move some of your credit from one of your other credit cards or ask them to close one of your other credit card accounts.
