Ok. I've recently (over the past few months) pursued, attempted, pitched, blabbed, etc..etc.. to recon with a few recent denials, from which I've proven to myself that both Citi, and Chase will never have anything to do with me ever, ever, ever again...
Discover forgave me after nearly twelve years, but the one I'm really waiting on is Barclays...I decided to test the waters (13 yrs later), and apped on the 24th. It's still pending (seven to ten day notice still up as of this morning).
Place your bets!! Place your bets!!
I'm not going to rush it. I'll wait for the churn out from the computer/underwriter, then recon if needed.

You'll get there. I went on a 10-yr credit hiatus for most of that time and didn't try again until 2007. I had FICOs in the 500s with a report full of baddies and no CCs when I did try with Discover and it was no wonder I was denied. But they never referenced my blacklist. I focused on repair and tried again in 2009 and was approved.

Most baddies are forgiven with time I think.
I burnt BOA pretty bad between 2006-2007. I was told that they could never give me a card. I worked on my credit and got my scores up. Fast forward to early 2012, applied for the BOA 123 privileges and got instant approval with a $15K CL then.
CITI on the other hand, I have never had a card with them nor any other products. Applied 3 times, always denied.

Toes crossed for you.

BOA, and Discover have forgiven me (short leash I'm sure, with the AR's I'm seeing), but Citi/Chase will most likely be at the 15+ for me. Those are the two that slam the door outright.

have you tried calling recon about your barclays app yet?
best of luck keep us updated!
For Chase, I think you could always call in to recon and ask. A few people eventually got approved despite burning them before, but its a YMMV situation.
