I apped for the iTunes card this afternoon after reading about all the recent approvals. I was declined and declined on recon about 7 months ago. Got a instant denial and called the recon # and bam approved for 1k. They must be trying to sign up as many people as possible. They pulled TU and I have an obscene amount of inq's on it. That is my last app for at least 6 months! Thats what im really going to try to stick to. Im going to re-freeze my TU and EQ to help me from urges. I dont know why it feels so good to be approved but it does! Anybody trying to get in with them now the time id say.

Congrats! I was declined for the Apple Visa card a few months back but never thought to call for a recon. Sucks, since I was really thinking of buying a new Mac book. Maybe I should try again...what number did you call by the way?

They pulled TU which is my lowest score ( Always seems to work that way) about 3 weeks ago I bought a car and it was a 620 so its somewhere give or take a few points around there. I dont have a BK so im not sure if they are friendly to them. He didnt even ask me about anything on my report he just asked me my income and what I did and then he asked me questions about my job. He seemed interested in it and we struck up a conversation about it and that was it approved.

I don't know if they're BK friendly or not, but I applied for my Barcalys B&N mastercard on the Barnes&Noble site.
They also have a wesbite: http://www.aboutbarclaycardus.com/
I will say this though, they were my first rebuilder card and have been very good with my CLI.
Before applying, I'd probably give them a call and see if they'll give you any info. about your approval chance. No point in wasting an inquiry.
