    2. How can you use this Account?

      You agree to use your Account only for lawful personal, family, or household purposes that include:

      Transaction Type

      Details

      Balance Transfers

      When you transfer a credit balance from another financial institution’s credit card to your Account, including using a check that accesses your Account. Your Account may not be eligible for Balance Transfers.

      Cash Advances

      When you use your Credit Card to get cash. These transactions include:

      • Credit Card use at:
        • ATM
        • Bank teller
        • Wells Fargo Online (Wellsfargo.com) or through the Wells Fargo mobile app
      • Cash-like transactions, such as:
        • Casino chips
        • Foreign currency
        • Lottery tickets
        • Money orders
        • Off-track wagers
        • Other wagers
        • Traveler checks
        • Wire transfers
        • Vouchers you can redeem for cash or similar items
      • Overdraft protection advances

      Purchases

      "Purchases" means when you use your Credit Card to buy or lease goods or services. Tax payments and associated fees are Purchases. Cash Advances and Balance Transfers are not Purchases.

      Other

      Any other transactions that we allow.

      We are not responsible for anyone who refuses to accept your Credit Card or any other Credit Access Device. Credit Access Device means a device other than your Credit Card that we allow you to use for accessing your Account to obtain credit, like SUPERCHECKS™ and mobile devices.

      Knowing Your Responsibility to Pay

      When you use your Account or let someone else use it, you promise to pay the total amount of the Purchases, Cash Advances, and Balance Transfers. You also promise to pay all interest, fees, and other amounts that you may owe us.

      back to the top

    3. Can we limit your Account use?

      Yes. We may limit or close your Account. If we do so, the terms of this Agreement will apply until you pay your Account in full.

      back to the top

    4. What is your Credit Limit?

      "Credit Limit" means the amount of credit that is available for you to use with your Account. We provide this amount to you with your Credit Card, and it shows on each of your billing statements. You promise to use your Account only to the limits.

      We can adjust your Credit Limit at any time, including automatically increasing your Credit Limit if you qualify. Further, we may restrict the amount of your Credit Limit that you can use for Cash Advances.

      back to the top

    5. What happens if you use more than your available Credit Limit?

      We may either allow the transaction without increasing your Credit Limit or deny the transaction. If we allow the transaction, we may require you to pay the over-limit amount along with your next statement’s Minimum Payment. You will still be liable (responsible) for all credit you receive.

      "Minimum Payment" means the minimum amount you must pay by the Payment Due Date. You can find this date on each billing statement for your Account. "Payment Due Date" means the date when the Minimum Payment is due.

      back to the top

    6. Can you add an authorized Credit Card user to your Account?

      Yes. To add an authorized user, contact us with the name of the person for whom you want us to issue a Credit Card. You can contact us any time at the number listed on the back of your Credit Card. We will then issue you a new Credit Card in their name.

      You are responsible for paying all charges that the authorized user makes and that you owe us, including any Purchases, Balance Transfers, or Cash Advances. This amount includes all related interest and fees.

      Providing Personal Information about Authorized Users

      You agree to give us certain personal information about each authorized user. They must give you permission to give us this information. The details you provide us may include:

      • Name
      • Address
      • Social security number
      • Individual Taxpayer Identification Number
      • Date of birth
      • Citizenship details

      Managing Credit Card Responsibilities with Authorized Users

      You are not required to have an authorized user on this Account. By adding one, this person is not liable for any Outstanding Balance or any other charges that you or any other authorized user makes. "Outstanding Balance" means the total of all unpaid amounts, including:

      • Purchases
      • Cash Advances
      • Balance Transfers
      • Interest
      • Fees
      • Any other amounts that you may owe us

      Should all liable cardholders die, all authorized users’ privileges automatically end. After that, any person who uses the Credit Card agrees to pay us all amounts they owe us. We can choose to pursue the person to pay any Outstanding Balance or other charges they allow.

      You agree to inform each authorized user that all applicable sections of this Agreement also apply to them.

      back to the top

    7. Can you end an authorized user’s ability to use your Account?

      Yes. You can stop an authorized user from being able to use your Account. To do so, take these steps:

      1. Recover that person’s Credit Card.
      2. Destroy the Credit Card.
      3. Contact us with your request to remove them at the number on the back of your Credit Card or by mail at:
        Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
        P.O. Box 10347
        Des Moines, IA 50306-0347

      Please note: If you do not recover and destroy their Credit Card, and the authorized user continues to use the Account, we have the right to cancel all Credit Cards and establish a new Account for you. However, until you contact us requesting to remove the authorized user, you continue to be liable for any charges the authorized user makes.

      back to the top

    8. Will you always receive a billing statement?

      We will send you a billing statement when your Account has a balance.

      back to the top

    9. What can cause your Account to be in default?

      Your Account is in default if any of the following happen:

      • You do not make a Minimum Payment by the Payment Due Date.
      • Your payment returns to Wells Fargo unpaid.
      • You do not honor this Agreement’s terms.
      • Your application includes a false statement.
      • You file for bankruptcy.

      In any of these scenarios, we will require you to immediately pay your Account total. We also may:

      • Not allow future transactions on your Account
      • Close your Account
      • Close your other Wells Fargo accounts

      Paying Our Costs When Your Account Is in Default

      You agree to pay collection costs, attorney’s fees, and court costs that we have as a result of enforcing our rights under this Agreement.

      Managing Defaults with Joint Accounts

      We consider a default by one Account holder to be a default by all of them.

      back to the top

    10. What should you do if your Credit Card is lost or stolen, or Account is compromised?

      Notify us immediately if:

      • Your Credit Card or Account information is lost or stolen, or
      • You believe someone is using it without your permission.

      back to the top

  • Part 2: Making Transactions and Other Account Activity

    1. How can you get Cash Advances?

      • Cash Advances from ATMs

        You may have limits on how much and how frequently you can use your Credit Card for Cash Advances from ATMs. If you have a Cash Advance limit, it will be on your monthly statement. The ATM owner may also restrict how you can use it. Your Cash Advance amount will include any fees that the ATM owner charges you.

      • Cash Advances for Overdraft Protection

        You may choose to use your Credit Card to provide an automatic Cash Advance to cover an overdraft on a linked Wells Fargo checking account. To cover this overdraft, we will advance either your overdraft amount or $25.00, whichever is greater. If your Credit Card’s available credit is less than these amounts, then we will advance the amount of your available credit.

        • Fees and Annual Percentage Rate (APR): "APR" is a rate that we use to calculate interest on your Account’s balance and shows as a percentage. You can find overdraft protection APR and fees in Important Terms of Your Credit Card Account, which is a summary of your Account’s APRs, fees, and other important information.

          Please note: Overdraft protection advances, interest, and fees may cause your Account balance to exceed your Credit Limit.

        • More than one person on checking account: If the checking account you link for overdraft protection lists more than one person (such as a joint checking account), then the following applies:
          • You are responsible for all overdraft protection advances. This responsibility is regardless of which person writes the check or does any other transaction that causes the overdraft, such as a debit card purchase.
          • You agree that we can disclose to any other person on your checking account that this Credit Card links to it for overdraft protection.

      We can cancel, suspend, or change your overdraft protection service at any time and for any reason.

      back to the top

    2. How can you use SUPERCHECKS™ on your Account?

      You can access your Account with SUPERCHECKS similar to how you write a check on a
      deposit account. SUPERCHECKS will post as a Balance Transfer. They will include transaction fees and interest.

      The following restrictions apply to SUPERCHECKS:

      • Payment on Other Wells Fargo Accounts: You cannot use SUPERCHECKS to pay on any Wells Fargo account.
      • Allowed User: Only the person whose name is printed on the check can use them.
      • Allowed Currency: You can only write them in U.S. dollars.
      • Certified: SUPERCHECKS cannot be certified.
      • Payment Disputes: If you use SUPERCHECKS to pay a merchant for property or services and a dispute arises, you cannot file a claim against us as a result.

      We can put conditions on using SUPERCHECKS checks. We can also choose whether to reject, decline, and return unpaid any SUPERCHECKS checks or advances.

      back to the top

    3. Can you use your Credit Card in a mobile app?

      Yes. We may allow you to load your Credit Card into an app on an electronic device, such as a mobile wallet. You can then use this app to make Purchases and transactions without presenting your Credit Card. Examples of electronic devices include smart phones, tablets, and other devices. Separate terms governing your use of your Credit Card through a mobile device and this Agreement cover those transactions. When you use your Credit Card with your mobile device for transactions, third parties (such as merchants and digital wallet operators) may use and receive information related to your mobile device and the Credit Card transactions. 

      • Third-Party Fees

        Third parties may charge you fees for your transaction, such as mobile-carrier data or messaging charges.

      • Restrictions

        At any time, we may partially or fully restrict your ability to make credit transactions through a third party/mobile device.

      • Account Removal

        You agree to promptly notify us by calling the number on the back of your Credit Card if you remove or want to remove your Account information from any app on an electronic device. 

      Please note: We have no control over those devices and cannot guarantee how well they work. You also should protect the device’s security the same as you would protect your Credit Card or other valuable information.

      back to the top

    4. Can you use your Credit Card to pay any other Wells Fargo credit account?

      No. You cannot use your Credit Card to pay any other Wells Fargo credit account.

      back to the top

    5. Can we deny transactions on your Credit Card?

      Yes. We may decline any transaction at any time for any reason, such as:

      • Account default
      • Internet gambling
      • Suspected fraudulent or unlawful activity
      • Any indication of a transaction’s increased risk

      We may also limit the number of authorizations we allow during a period of time. In addition, we can deny authorizations from merchants who may be engaging in the internet gambling business.

      back to the top

    6. How do we manage temporary authorizations?

      We may allow temporary authorizations that are greater than your actual Purchase amount for transactions at some merchants, such as:

      • Car rental companies
      • Gas stations
      • Hotels
      • Restaurants

      This temporary authorization may make less credit available on your Account for several days. This step usually happens until the date when the merchant provides the actual Purchase amount.

      back to the top

    7. What happens if you misuse your Account in order to earn or use Rewards?

      If you abuse, misuse, or game your Account in order to earn or use Rewards, or try to do so, then we may close or restrict your Credit Card. This misuse means that you make multiple Purchases and payments during a Billing Cycle, which causes your total Purchases amount to substantially exceed your Credit Limit. Each billing statement shows a statement closing date, which is your Billing Cycle’s last day. "Billing Cycle" means the time period between billing statements.

      back to the top

    8. How does an international transaction in foreign currency convert to U.S. dollars?

      When you use your Visa Credit Card to make a transaction in a currency other than U.S. dollars, Visa International (Visa) converts the charge into a U.S. dollar amount. Visa uses one of the following steps to determine the exchange rate between the transaction currency and the billing currency:

      • Select a rate from the range available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date. This rate may vary from the rate Visa receives. Or,
      • Use the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date.

      The processing date’s currency conversion rate may differ from the rate in effect on the transaction date or the date when the transaction posts to your Account.

      Using Merchant Conversions

      Some merchants outside of the U.S. can give you an option for how to convert the Credit Card transaction into U.S. dollars. They can have you choose whether you want Visa or the merchant to make the conversion. If you choose for the merchant to do it, then they determine the conversion rate, not Visa. We then do not charge you a foreign currency conversion fee.

      back to the top

  • Part 3: Understanding Fees and Interest

    1. What are the Account’s fees?

      The following fees may apply to your Account, and you agree to pay them. If they do apply, you will find the amount in the document, Important Terms of Your Credit Card Account.

      Fee Type

      When We Charge This Fee

      Annual Fee

      We will add this fee to your monthly billing statement once a year, whether or not you use this Account. We add this fee to your Purchase balance, which may create interest charges. We will notify you before we charge the annual fee. To avoid future annual fees, you must close your Account before we charge you the annual fee. You may be eligible for a refund of the annual fee depending on when you close your Account.

      Balance Transfer Fee

      On a Balance Transfer transaction

      Cash Advance Fee

      On a Cash Advance from your Account

      Foreign Currency Conversion Fee

      If you make a transaction in a foreign currency and Visa converts it into a U.S. dollar amount

      Late Fee

      Each time we do not receive the required Minimum Payment by the Payment Due Date

      Rush Plastic Fee

      If you ask us to rush delivering your Credit Card to you

      We may charge additional fees if you and we agree to them. We add all fees to your Purchases balance, except Cash Advance fees. We add those fees to your Account’s Cash Advance balance.

      back to the top

    2. When do we charge interest to your Account?

      • For most transactions: We charge interest beginning on the date you make the transaction on your Account.
      • For fees: We charge interest beginning on the Billing Cycle’s first day after the previous Billing Cycle in which the fee posted to your Account.

      back to the top

    3. Does your Account have a Minimum Interest Charge?

      Your Account may have a Minimum Interest Charge. "Minimum Interest Charge" means the lowest amount of interest we charge you if you owe any interest in a Billing Cycle.

      For details of this charge, please see the document, Important Terms of Your Credit Card Account.

      back to the top

    4. What interest charges will you owe us?

      The following details describe the interest you may owe each Billing Cycle. You can find details on the APRs that apply to different balances in the document, Important Terms of Your Credit Card Account.

      • Introductory and Promotional Rates

      Introductory Rates

      Your Account may be eligible for introductory rates. The document, Important Terms of Your Credit Card Account, describes whether you qualify.

      Promotional Rates

      If we offer you a promotional rate after you open your Credit Card, then you will receive the terms at that time.

      When any introductory and promotional rates expire, your remaining balances receive the applicable regular APR terms. You can find these details in the document, Important Terms of Your Credit Card Account.

      • Standard Variable APR

      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 Cycle, we use the U.S. Prime Rate and add a margin. See the document Important Terms of Your Credit Card Account for the margin on Purchases, Balance Transfers, Cash Advances, and overdraft protection advances on your Account. You can also find details in that document about your Account’s daily periodic rates.

      How We Determine the U.S. Prime Rate

      Each Billing Cycle, 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 Rates exist, 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.

      A change in the APR may increase or decrease the total amount of interest you pay and your Minimum Payment. If the U.S. Prime Rate changes and affects your APR, the new APR will apply to both existing and future balances on the first day of your Billing Cycle. The APR will continue to vary even if you or we close your Account.

      • Fixed APRs

      "Fixed APRs" means APRs that do not change with the market based on the U.S. Prime Rate. However, if one or more Fixed APRs apply to your Account, we may change the Fixed APR from time to time. We do so by following the terms that we describe in "Part 6 – Section 1: Can we change this Agreement?" of this document. You can find the APRs that apply to your Account in the document, Important Terms of Your Credit Card Account.

      back to the top

    5. What is your daily periodic rate?

      The daily periodic rate is a daily interest rate. We calculate it by dividing each applicable APR by 365.

      back to the top

    6. How do we calculate interest on your Account?

      We take the following steps to calculate your Account’s interest:

      • Step 1: Calculate the daily balance.

      We calculate your daily balance separately for each transaction category. We take the following actions:

      1. Start with the daily balance from the end of the previous day.
      2. Add any new transactions and other charges, including interest that accrued on the previous day’s balance (interest compounds daily).
      3. We then subtract any payments or credits.

      For example:

      Calculation

      Amount

      Daily balance for Purchases from the previous day

      $1,000

      Add New Purchases

      + $500

      Add Fees and interest accrued on the previous day's transaction category balance

      + $50

      Subtract payments, credits, and adjustments that posted that day

      – $250

      = New daily balance for Purchases

      = $1300

      • Step 2: Calculate the Average Daily Balance (ADB).

      We add together all the daily balances for the Billing Cycle, starting with the beginning balance on the Billing Cycle’s first day. This beginning balance includes any unpaid fees from the previous Billing Cycle and any late fees that we charged you during the current Billing Cycle. We treat any daily balance that has a credit as zero. We then divide this amount by the number of days in the Billing Cycle.

      For example:

      Calculation

      Amount

      Sum of daily balances

      $4,000

      Divide by number of days in the Billing Cycle

      ÷ 30

      = ADB

      = $133.33

      • Step 3: Calculate the interest.

      We calculate the interest we will charge for each balance type by doing the following:

      1. Multiply the daily periodic rate by the ADB.
      2. Multiply the total from the previous bullet by the number of days in the Billing Cycle.

      For example:

      Calculation

      Amount

      Daily periodic rate

      0.05%

      Multiply by the ADB

      x 133.33

      Multiply by number of days in Billing Cycle

      x 30

      = Charged interest

      = $2.00

      back to the top

    7. How can you avoid paying interest on your Account?

      You can avoid paying interest on new Purchases by paying your entire New Balance by the Payment Due Date on each Billing Cycle’s statement. However, you must always pay interest on Cash Advances and Balance Transfers.

      "New Balance" means the total amount you owe by the statement’s closing date. Your Payment Due Date is at least 25 days from the statement’s closing date. You can find this detail on your billing statement.

      back to the top

    8. When do we apply specific transactions, fees, and credits to your Account?

      Transactions

      • Purchases and Balance Transfers: We add these amounts to the Purchase balance on the transaction date that your statement shows.
      • Cash Advance: We add this amount to the Cash Advance balance on the transaction date that your statement shows.
      • Overdraft Protection Advance: We add this amount to the Cash Advance balance on the transaction date that your statement shows.

      Fees

      • Balance Transfer Fee: We add this fee to your Purchase balance on the transaction date that your statement shows.
      • Cash Advance Fee: We add this fee to your Cash Advance balance on the transaction date that your statement shows.

      back to the top

  • Part 4: Making and Processing Payments

    1. How much do you need to pay by the Payment Due Date?

      Amount You Can Pay at Any Time

      You can pay all or part of your Account balance at any time.

      Amount You Must Pay By the Payment Due Date

      You must pay your Minimum Payment by the Payment Due Date. You can find this amount and the date on your billing statement.

      Your Minimum Payment includes any amount past due plus whichever of the following amounts are greater:

      • 1% of the New Balance on your billing statement plus the total we bill you during the Billing
        Cycle for interest and any of these fees:
        • Annual
        • Late
        • Rush plastic

        We round your Minimum Payment amount up to the next highest whole dollar amount. 

      • $25.00 or the Account’s entire balance if the New Balance is less than $25.00

      In addition, you must pay any amount that is over your Account’s Credit Limit. However, we do not include this amount in your Minimum Payment.

    2. How can you make a payment?

      You must pay in U.S. dollars with a personal check, money order, or cashier’s check that a United States bank issues.

      You can either mail your payment to us or pay electronically. If you mail your payment, send it to the address on your billing statement and use the enclosed envelope and payment coupon (if you receive printed statements).

      Electronic Conversions

      We may convert checks or other paper documents to an electronic transaction. To do so, we follow procedures that the National Automated Clearing House Association establishes. When this step happens, we keep a copy of the check or document you send us and not the original. You can request to receive this copy from us.

      Amounts in Excess of the Minimum Payment

      If you pay more than your required Minimum Payment, then we apply the excess first to the higher APR balances and then to lower ones. We do so based on the balances in your last billing statement.

      Please note: If we accept payments that are less than the full amount you owe, we do not consider it as a full payment.

    6. Dispute Resolution Program: Arbitration Agreement

      1. Binding Arbitration. You and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. (the "Bank") Agree that if a Dispute arises between you and the Bank, upon demand by either you or the Bank, the Dispute shall be resolved by the following arbitration process. The foregoing notwithstanding, the Bank shall not initiate an arbitration to collect a consumer debt, but reserves the right to arbitrate all other disputes with its consumer customers. A "Dispute" is any unresolved disagreement between you and the Bank. It includes any disagreement relating in any way to the Card or related services, Accounts, or matters; to your use of any of the Bank's banking locations or facilities; or to any means you may use to access the Bank. It includes claims based on broken promises or contracts, torts, or other wrongful actions. It also includes statutory, common law, and equitable claims. A Dispute also includes any disagreements about the meaning or application of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement shall survive the payment or closure of your Account. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU AND THE BANK ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OR TRIAL BEFORE A JUDGE IN A PUBLIC COURT. As the sole exception to this Arbitration Agreement, you and the Bank retain the right to pursue in small claims court any Dispute that is within that court's jurisdiction. If either you or the Bank fails to submit to binding arbitration following lawful demand, the party so failing bears all costs and expenses incurred by the other in compelling arbitration.
      2. Arbitration Procedure; Severability. Either you or the Bank may submit a Dispute to binding arbitration at any time notwithstanding that a lawsuit or other proceeding has been previously commenced. NEITHER YOU NOR THE BANK SHALL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE DISPUTES BY OR AGAINST OTHERS IN ANY ARBITRATION, OR TO INCLUDE IN ANY ARBITRATION ANY DISPUTE AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF A CLASS, OR TO ACT IN ANY ARBITRATION IN THE INTEREST OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. Each arbitration, including the selection of the arbitrator(s), shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA), or such other administrator as you and the Bank may mutually agree to (the AAA or such other mutually agreeable administrator to be referred to hereinafter as the "Arbitration Administrator"), according to the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplemental Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Rules"). To the extent that there is any variance between the AAA Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement shall control. Arbitrator(s) must be members of the state bar where the arbitration is held, with expertise in the substantive laws applicable to the subject matter of the Dispute. You and the Bank (the "Parties") agree that in this relationship: (1) The Parties are participating in transactions involving interstate commerce; and (2) This Arbitration Agreement and any resulting arbitration are governed by the provisions of the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9 of the United States Code), and, to the extent any provision of that Act is inapplicable, unenforceable or invalid, the laws of the state of South Dakota. If any of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement dealing with class action, class arbitration, private attorney general action, other representative action, joinder, or consolidation is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that invalid provision shall not be severable and this entire Arbitration Agreement shall be unenforceable.
      3. Rights Preserved. This Arbitration Agreement does not prohibit the Parties from exercising any lawful rights or using other available remedies to preserve, foreclose, or obtain possession of real or personal property; exercise self-help remedies, including setoff and repossession rights; or obtain provisional or ancillary remedies such as injunctive relief, attachment, garnishment, or the appointment of a receiver by a court of competent jurisdiction. Any statute of limitations applicable to any Dispute applies to any arbitration between the Parties. The provisions of this Arbitration Agreement shall survive termination, amendment, or expiration of the Card or any other relationship between you and the Bank.
      4. Fees and Expenses of Arbitration. Arbitration fees shall be determined by the rules or procedures of the Arbitration Administrator, unless limited by applicable law. Please check with the Arbitration Administrator to determine the fees applicable to any arbitration you may file. If the applicable law of the state in which you opened your Account limits the amount of fees and expenses to be paid by you, then no allocation of fees and expenses to you shall exceed this limitation. Bank will pay any costs that are required to be paid by it under the Arbitration Administrator’s rules and procedures, and subject to applicable law. If the arbitrator rules in your favor on any claim presented, the Bank will reimburse you for arbitration filing fees you have paid up to $700.00. Unless applicable law states otherwise, each party will pay their own attorney, expert, and witness fees. This rule applies no matter which party wins arbitration.
      5. Military Lending Act. The Arbitration Agreement may not apply to you if you are a covered borrower. Please see The Military Lending Act Notice in the Agreement for more information.

    7. Your Billing Rights

      Keep This Notice For Future Use. This notice tells you about your rights and our responsibilities under the Fair Credit Billing Act.

      What To Do If You Find a Mistake on Your Statement. If you think there is an error on your statement, write to us at:
      Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
      P.O. Box 522
      Des Moines, IA 50306-0522

      In your letter, give us the following information:

      • Your name and Account number;
      • The date and dollar amount of the suspected error.
      • If you think there is an error on your bill, describe what you believe is wrong and why you believe it is a mistake.

      You can also contact us at the phone number that lists on the back of your card.

      You must contact us:

      • Within 60 days after the error appeared on your statement.
      • At least 3 business days before an automated payment is scheduled, if you want to stop payment on the amount you think is wrong.

      You must notify us of any potential errors in writing at the address above. You may notify using other ways (including calling us at the telephone number listed on the front of your statement), but if you do we are not required to investigate any potential errors and you may have to pay the amount in question.

      What Will Happen After We Receive Your Letter.

      When we receive your letter, we must do two things:

      1. Within 30 days of receiving your letter, we must tell you that we received your letter. We will also tell you if we have already corrected the error.
      2. Within 90 days of receiving your letter, we must either correct the error or explain to you why we believe the bill is correct.

      While we investigate whether or not there has been an error:

      • We cannot try to collect the amount in question or report you as delinquent on that amount.
      • The charge in question may remain on your statement, and we may continue to charge you interest on that amount.
      • While you do not have to pay the amount in question, you are responsible for the remainder of your balance.
      • We can apply any unpaid amount against your Credit Limit.

      After we finish our investigation, one of two things will happen:

      • If we made a mistake: You will not have to pay the amount in question or any interest or other fees related to that amount.
      • If we do not believe there was a mistake: You will have to pay the amount in question, along with applicable interest and fees. We will send you a statement of the amount you owe and the date payment is due. We may then report you as delinquent if you do not pay the amount we think you owe.

      If you receive our explanation but still believe your bill is wrong, you must write to us within 10 days telling us that you still refuse to pay. If you do so, we cannot report you as delinquent without also reporting that you are questioning your bill. We must tell you the name of anyone to whom we reported you as delinquent, and we must let those organizations know when the matter has been settled between us. If we do not follow all of the rules above, you do not have to pay the amount you question even if your bill is correct.

      Your Rights If You Are Dissatisfied With Your Credit Card Purchases. If you are dissatisfied with the goods or services that you have purchased with your credit card and you have tried in good faith to correct the problem with the merchant, you may have the right not to pay the remaining amount due on the Purchase.

      To use this right, all of the following must be true:

      1. The Purchase must have been made in your home state or within 100 miles of your current mailing address, and the Purchase price must have been more than $50. (Note: Neither of these are necessary if your Purchase was based on an advertisement we mailed to you, or if we own the company that sold you the goods or services.)
      2. You must have used your credit card for the Purchase. Purchases made with Cash Advances from an ATM or with a check that accesses your credit card Account do not qualify.
      3. You must not yet have fully paid for the Purchase.

      If all of the criteria above are met and you are still dissatisfied with the Purchase, contact us in writing at:
      Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
      P.O. Box 522
      Des Moines, IA 50306-0522

      While we investigate, the same rules apply to the disputed amount as discussed above. After we finish our investigation, we will tell you our decision. At that point, if we think you owe an amount and you do not pay, we may report you as delinquent.

    8. Active Duty Military Servicemembers and Their Dependents

      The Military Lending Act Notice: Federal Law provides important protections to members of the Armed Forces and their dependents relating to extensions of consumer credit. In general, the costs of consumer credit to a member of the Armed Forces and his or her dependent may not exceed an annual percentage rate of 36 percent. This rate must include, as applicable to the credit transaction or account: the cost associated with credit insurance premiums, fees for ancillary products sold in connection with the credit transaction, any application fee charged (other than certain application fees for specified credit transactions or accounts), and any participation fee charged (other than certain participation fees for a credit card account).

      You may contact us at 1-844-309-0044 for information about the Military Annual Percentage Rate and a description of your payment obligation.

      The Arbitration Agreement does not apply to you if you are covered by the Military Lending Act nor do any provisions that waive any right to legal recourse under any state or federal law to the extent required by the Military Lending Act.

* You are leaving Wells Fargo and entering a website that Wells Fargo does not control. Wells Fargo has provided this link for your convenience, but does not endorse and is not responsible for the content, links, privacy policy, or security policy of this website.

How we will calculate your balance

We use a method called "average daily balance (including new purchases)." See the Agreement for more details.

How we will calculate your late payment fees

The fee will be either $40 or the amount of your Minimum Payment, whichever is lower.

 

How we will calculate your variable APRs

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

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 Rates exist, 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.

The APR may increase or decrease if the U.S. Prime Rate increases or decreases and this will also cause the related daily periodic rate to increase or decrease. An increase or decrease in the APR may increase or decrease the total amount of interest you pay. It may also increase or decrease the Minimum Payment due. See the Agreement for more details.
