You can check your Barclaycard application status on the Barclays application status website. Just enter your last name, the last 4 digits of your Social Security number, your zip code, and your email address. Barclays can take 7-14 days to approve or deny credit card applications.
If your application is still pending online, you can call the Barclays reconsideration line at 866-408-4064 for a faster decision. The reconsideration line is intended as an appeal option for people who’ve been denied a credit card, but it’s also helpful if you want to speak to a Barclays employee about a pending application. They should have the latest information about your application status.
You won’t be able to check on the status of a credit application through the main customer service lines. If you call to check on an application, the automated system will direct you to the Barclays application status website.
Approved applicants will get their new Barclays credit card within 14 days of approval. If you’re denied, you’ll receive a letter in the mail within 30 days explaining why. Denied applicants who have extra information that could potentially tip the scales the other way can call the Barclaycard reconsideration line (866-408-4064). You’ll be connected with an analyst who can discuss your application. The line is open from 8 am ET until midnight, 7 days a week.
