  4. What procedures do we use to verify your identity when you open an Account?
    Important information about procedures for opening a new account.

    To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, U.S. Federal law requires financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person (individual or business) who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask for your driver’s license or other identifying information.

    • ATM access
    Further, you may also be denied access to your Account.

    • You already have a Wells Fargo Credit Card account that has no current balance, and
    • You have not used the Wells Fargo Credit Card account for any reason within the past six months.

    Please note: You can change or re-distribute your credit limits on your own by calling Customer Service any time at the number listed on the back of your card. Certain restrictions may apply.

  9. How do we calculate your variable APRs?

    A variable APR is an interest rate that varies with the market based on the U.S. Prime Rate. To calculate your variable APR for each billing period, we use the U.S. Prime Rate and add a margin.

    • How We Determine the U.S. Prime Rate

      Each billing period, we use the U.S. Prime Rate that the Wall Street Journal publishes in its Money Rates section three business days before your billing statement’s closing date. When more than one U.S. Prime Rate exists, we use an average. If the U.S. Prime Rate is not published or available (temporarily or permanently), we use a substitute index that we believe is similar to the U.S. Prime Rate. We do so at our sole discretion.
      As of 04/15/2024, the U.S. Prime Rate is 8.50%.

    • How We Calculate Your Variable APR

      We use the following margins:

      • For purchases and balance transfers: We add either 11.74%, 16.74%, or 21.74% to the U.S. Prime Rate. Your creditworthiness determines the percentage we use. The Maximum APR is 29.99%.
      • For cash advances and overdraft protection advances: We add 22.74% to the U.S. Prime Rate. The Maximum APR is 29.99%.

      We reserve the right to change terms, APRs, and fees at our discretion by following your Agreement and as allowed by applicable law.

      Please note: You may not qualify for the lowest APRs described. We review your credit report, information provided in your application, and other available relevant information to determine your APRs.

  10. How do we apply your payments?
    • Minimum Payment
      Generally, we process your minimum payment in the following order:
      1. Lower APR balances (such as Purchases)
      2. Higher APR balances (such as Cash Advances)
    • Amounts in Excess of the Minimum Payment

      If you pay more than your required minimum payment, generally we apply the excess first to the higher APR balances and then to lower ones.

  11. How does Overdraft Protection work?
    You can choose whether to link your Account to your Wells Fargo checking account for Overdraft Protection. To enroll, visit us online at: www.wellsfargo.com/credit-cards/features/overdraft-protection/.
    If you choose to enroll, you can link to an account where you are either the sole owner or a joint owner.
    • Joint Checking Accounts
      If you link to a joint Wells Fargo checking account, then you are responsible for all Overdraft Protection Advances from your credit card, including interest and charges. This responsibility applies regardless of who:
      • Writes the check,
      • Purchases items with the debit card, or
      • Engages in any other transaction that causes the overdraft
    • When Interest Charges Begin

      Interest will begin to accrue on each date that an advance is made.

    • Credit Card Confirmation Required

      You must confirm that you received your credit card. If you do not confirm your card, no money will transfer to cover the overdraft. Please allow up to three business days to fully enable your Overdraft Protection service once you confirm your credit card. Refer to the Agreement for details. You may be able to protect your Account against overdraft with other less costly options.

      For more information about Overdraft Protection, please visit the following webpages:
  12. How do we verify information from phone service providers?

    You agree that we may contact your past, present, and future phone service providers to verify information that you gave us including any phone numbers against their records about you (such as name, address and account status).

  13. How and why can we contact you?
    You agree that we have your consent to contact you at any phone number, email address, or mailing address you provide for any Wells Fargo account or at any number that you call us from or at any number that we obtain by other means. If you provided a phone number(s), you agree that you are authorized to provide this phone number(s) and agree to receive calls and text messages from Wells Fargo at this number(s) for all your current and future Wells Fargo products and services. This does not give Wells Fargo permission to call or text you for marketing purposes. Message and data rates may apply. Message frequency varies. Automated systems, including prerecorded or artificial voice may be used.
  14. What happens if your contact information changes?
    You must promptly contact us if you change any of the contact information you provided us. This information includes your:
    • Name
    • Email addresses
    • Mailing address
    • Phone numbers
  15. How is the credit card law different for Ohio residents?

    Notice: The Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all creditworthy customers, and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with this law.

  16. How is the credit card law different for married Wisconsin residents?

    Notice: If you are married, by submitting your credit card application you are confirming that this credit card obligation is being incurred in the interest of your marriage and your family. No provision of any marital property agreement (pre-marital agreement), unilateral statement under 766.59 of the Wisconsin Statutes, or a court decree under 766.70 adversely affects the interest of the creditor unless the creditor, prior to the time the credit is granted, is furnished a copy of the agreement, statement or decrees or has actual knowledge of the adverse provision. If the credit card for which you are applying is granted, you will notify the Bank if you have a spouse who needs to receive notification that credit has been extended to you.

  17. How does the $200 Cash Rewards bonus work?
    How You Qualify

    You qualify for the $200 Cash Rewards bonus when you make at least $500 in net purchases that post to your account within 3 months from the date you opened your account. A net purchase is the amount that remains after any returns or credits.
