Credit Card Reconsideration Phone Number List
We get a lot of questions and a lot of interest in reconsideration calls and strategies. Because of that we thought it would be helpful to put together a credit card reconsideration phone number list for all major issuers. I used up to date info from Doctor of Credit and this Flyertalk thread. If I couldn’t find a reconsideration number then I included the general info line number for the card type.

Calling credit card reconsideration after an unsuccessful application is often the best option. I like to do a search to see what the latest data points say about their recon experiences. Generally I’ll then call when I think I have a good handle on the causes of my denial and a strategy for my call. If your status hasn’t been changed to an approval after a call you can also message them or send a letter, just be sure to consult this post for some helpful tips.
