Just called the backdoor Barclays number after I got a 7-10 day notice when I applied online last night.
Was approved for $5000 with high util on 4 cards out of 12. Just explained my debt and also it helped that had a Juniper MC with Barclays with a 0 balance and never late for the 3 years I had the card.
You all were right about calling the backdoor number for recon. I am so happy right now. No more credit... It is time to garden for about 1.5 years so that I can finally get an Amex which will backdate from my old card days in 1984.
Thanks again for all your posts.

Congrats on your approval. I also was approved back in December 2010 for the Travelocity Amex. I also have a Juni Visa, and got the 10 day message. They called 2 days later to verify i applied for the Amex, and after a couple of questions, approved me for 8k. I'm waiting for my auto cli at 6 mos, or i'll call and request to 15k. I've had my Juni Visa since 2009, and am already at 10.5k. I took the 39$AF with 7500 bonus sign up points, with double points on grocery category.
Congrats on your approval, and enjoy your new Amex
