Discover better benefits with a Portfolio by Wells Fargo program
Enjoy a higher level of banking rewards, including bonus interest rates, fee waivers, and discounts on ††brokerage services offered through our affiliate Wells Fargo Advisors®.
The APY (Annual Percentage Yield) is a percentage rate that reflects the total amount of interest paid on the account, based on the interest rate and the frequency of compounding for a 365-day period. Your account statement will include the APY earned on your savings accounts and interest-earning checking accounts for the period covered by the statement.
At the foundation of the Portfolio by Wells Fargo program is an interest-earning checking account, linking balances across your entire financial relationship — including your ††brokerage, savings, and retirement accounts.

To qualify for a customer relationship discount, you may be required to maintain a qualifying Wells Fargo consumer checking account and make automatic payments from a Wells Fargo deposit account — if automatic payments are required but not selected, or are canceled for any reason at any time after account opening, the interest rate and the corresponding monthly payment may increase. To learn which accounts qualify for the discount, please consult a Wells Fargo banker.

If you own a qualifying Wells Fargo consumer checking or savings account, or a Portfolio by Wells Fargo program (each a “qualifying deposit account”), you will earn a relationship bonus of 10%, 25%, or 50% on rewards points earned on net purchases (purchases minus returns/credits) made on your credit card account. You cannot earn a relationship bonus on points that are earned as either bonus points or as promotional points. Your relationship bonus percentage will be determined based on the type of qualifying deposit account you own. If you own an eligible checking or savings account, you will earn a 10% relationship bonus. If you own the primary checking account in a Portfolio by Wells Fargo program, you will earn either a 25% or 50% relationship bonus, depending on the statement-ending qualifying balances and type of Portfolio by Wells Fargo. If you own more than one qualifying deposit account, you will earn the most favorable bonus rewards points percentage you qualify for at the time your relationship bonus is calculated. The relationship bonus, which will be in the form of rewards points, will post to your account in the 13th month after your credit card account was opened and annually on this date thereafter for as long as you maintain your qualifying deposit account. Please review the Wells Fargo Rewards® Program Terms and Conditions for the Wells Fargo Propel World American Express® Card or the Wells Fargo Propel 365 American Express® Card for details.
Overdraft Protection transfers from a savings account count towards the Regulation D and Wells Fargo combined limit of 6 transfers and withdrawals per monthly fee period. If the limit is exceeded, an excess activity fee for each transfer or withdrawal over the limit will be assessed. If the limit is exceeded on more than an occasional basis, your savings account could be converted to a checking account or closed.

For the Portfolio by Wells Fargo program, Wells Fargo will waive its own ATM access fee (U.S. and international) when you withdraw cash from a non-Wells Fargo ATM from your primary checking account within the Portfolio by Wells Fargo program.
