A "backdoor number" is one that gets you past frontline CSR's directly to Credit Analysts / Credit Departments / Account Managers / Account Specialists (different lenders call 'em different things) - these people/departments have decision-making abilities far beyond frontline CSR's; they can take and review requests for reconsideration of denied CC apps or CLI requests, APR reductions, etc. and implement their decisions.

 

I can continuously update this first post with the latest information if everyone will post to this thread.  I'll make the change and acknowledge.  We truly appreciate your participation.

Thanks for updating this Marv. 

Here is my contribution from the old thread that wasn’t updated:

 

Citi:

866-606-2787 Doesn’t work.

800-695-5171 Confirmed. Rings directly to a live person (US based) for New Accounts UW/Recon.

Done, Original list updated.

AMEX Business charge cards - (877) 399-3083

I applied for a Business Platinum card and was declined by their automated system. Called the above number to ask about recon. I didn’t directly get an underwriter. But the lady on the phone took the information and said she’d get it to the UW department. I didn’t believe her, but she called back just a couple minutes later to say she spoke to the UW team and I was approved. So this should work for AMEX Biz charge cards. Not sure about their other cards though.
