I know what you mean, I have a $500 secured BoA card and was so happy when I got a $200 auto cli, and then ecstatic when I got a second $200 auto cli. Now I couldn't care less and I'm just sitting here with a $10k line on a single card.
Don't let one failed recon with Chase scare you off - I've had to recon 3 times with them to get a card. It's just a matter of convincing the right analyst you would be a good customer, or finding one in a good mood or whatever the case may be. I've recon'd with both Barclays and Chase and both are about as open to recons as anyone.
It might be too late at this point to recon again but just info for everyone for the future.
