Welcome to the forums Zig!
I've never heard of any lender offering to re-open a card honestly; usually it's a new card so you may not get the old history back on the account. I think if you want the card, it's worthwhile reopening it; as for the goodwill letters, those may be able to work for you and it certainly doesn't hurt to try. There's a ton of good information over in the Rebuilding Your Credit forum on them, and it's worth checking out.
