For American Express, I had success using 877-621-2639. I checked my account last night and checked a few cards and saw the "pre-approval". I was interested in the Cash Magnet card, app'd and got the 10-14 day message (their pre-approvals need some work lol). I tried the number listed in the main thread but had a hard time getting to a human (could have been my fault). Called the above number, selected "status of application" and when they started asking for info I said "customer service", was connected to a really nice guy who approved the card for $7200 and said that I would be eligible for an increase "soon".
Since they're popular here's some helpful info if you run into issues.

Used the US Bank 800-947-1444 number to request a reconsideration of a credit limit I had just been approved for on a balance transfer card. I successfully reached an underwriter, but was informed that although I had just applied (and been approved) for this card, a FEDERAL LAW required a second hard inquiry on my credit report. This didn't sound right to me, but I am admittedly not as familiar with these things as I once was. I questioned the validity of their claim and was politely told that there was no way around this, so I in turn politely declined to press the issue.
