How we will calculate your balance

We use a method called "average daily balance (including new purchases)".

You may not qualify for an additional Wells Fargo credit card if you have opened a Wells Fargo credit card in the last 6 months.

Credit limit reallocation

If you have a credit card with Wells Fargo, have no current balance on that card and have not used your card for any purpose in the past six months and you are applying for an additional card, you agree to allow Wells Fargo to allocate your credit limits between your existing and new credit card accounts, to allow for use of both cards.  Please note that you can change or reallocate your limits on your own by calling Customer Service at any time, with certain restrictions.

How we will calculate your variable APRs

  • Unless an introductory or promotional APR is in effect, we will add a “Margin” to the U.S. Prime Rate to determine your standard variable APR. For each billing period we will use the U.S. Prime Rate, or the average of the U.S. Prime Rates if there is more than one, published in the Money Rates column of The Wall Street Journal three business days prior to your billing statement closing date. If the U.S. Prime Rate is not published or is otherwise unavailable, whether temporarily or permanently, we will select a substitute index that we believe, in our sole discretion, to be similar to the U.S. Prime Rate. The U.S. Prime Rate is 5.25 percentage points as of 11/18/2018.
  • The "Margin" for purchases and balance transfers will be 9.24 percentage points.
  • The "Margin" for cash advances and overdraft protection advances will be 20.74 percentage points.

Wells Fargo reserves the right to change terms, rates (APRs) and fees, at its discretion in accordance with the Consumer Credit Card Customer Agreement and Disclosure Statement ("Agreement") for your account and applicable law. 


Application of payments

Generally, we will apply your minimum payment first to lower APR balances (such as Purchases) before balances with higher APRs (such as Cash Advances). Payments made in excess of the minimum payment will generally be applied to balances with higher APRs first before balances with lower ones.

Overdraft protection

If you choose to link your Account to your Wells Fargo checking account for Overdraft Protection, please note the following. If you have a joint checking account, you will be responsible for all advances, including interest and charges, from your credit card to cover overdrafts, regardless of who writes the check, makes the debit card purchase, or engages in any other transaction that causes the overdraft. Depending on your account terms, an Overdraft Protection Advance Fee may be charged to your Account each day an Overdraft Protection Advance is made, and interest will accrue from the date each advance is made. Your credit card must be activated; if it is not activated, no money will transfer to cover the overdraft. Once your credit card has been activated, please allow up to 3 business days for your Overdraft Protection service to be fully enabled. Refer to the Consumer Credit Card Customer Agreement and Disclosure Statement for details. Please note that you may also be able to link your Wells Fargo savings account to your Wells Fargo checking account for Overdraft Protection. No interest is charged on Overdraft Protection transfers from your savings account; however, Overdraft Protection transfers from a savings account count towards the Regulation D and Wells Fargo combined total limit of 6 transfers and withdrawals per monthly fee period. If the limit is exceeded, an excess activity fee for each transfer or withdrawal 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.

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.

Consent to contact you

By providing us with any telephone number, you are expressly consenting permission to contact you at that number about all of your Wells Fargo accounts. You give consent to allow us to contact your past, present and future phone service providers to verify the information you have provided against their records. You agree that your phone service providers may verify any phone numbers you have supplied to the name, address, and status on their records. For us to service your Account or to collect any amounts you may owe, you agree that we may contact you using any contact information related to your Account including any number (i) you have provided to us (ii) from which you called us, or (iii) which we obtained and reasonably believe we can reach you. We may use any means to contact you and this may include contact from companies working on our behalf to service your accounts. This may include automated dialing devices, prerecorded/artificial voice messages, mail, e-mail, text messages, and calls to your cell phone or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service, or any other data or voice transmission technology. You are responsible for any service provider charges as a result of us contacting you. You agree to promptly notify us if you change any contact information you provide to us. This includes your name, mailing address, e-mail addresses, or phone numbers. If you have a joint Account, a notice to one of you will serve as a notice to both of you.

Notice to Ohio residents

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.

Notice to married Wisconsin residents

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.

Cellular telephone protection

Cellular Telephone Protection can reimburse the eligible Wells Fargo Consumer Credit Card cardholder for damage to or theft of a cell phone. Reimbursement is limited to the repair or replacement of your original cell phone, less a $25 deductible with a maximum benefit limit of $600 per claim and $1,200 per 12 month period. This benefit does not cover cell phones that are lost (i.e. disappear without explanation). This protection is only available when cell phone bills are paid from your Wells Fargo Consumer Credit Card. The coverage does not apply if the cell phone bill is paid from a Wells Fargo Debit Card, Wells Fargo Business Credit Card, Wells Fargo Commercial Card or from the card that is linked to a Line of Credit. Coverage does not apply to cell phones that are rented, borrowed, or received as part of a prepaid plan. Electronic failure or issues related to the software of the device are not covered. Cellular Telephone Protection coverage begins the first day of the calendar month following your first cell phone billing on your Wells Fargo Consumer Credit Card, and remains in effect when you continue to charge your total monthly cell phone bill to your Wells Fargo Consumer Credit Card. This protection may not be equivalent to or better than other applicable coverage. This is supplemental coverage not otherwise covered by another insurance policy (for example, cell phone insurance programs, or your homeowner's, renter's, automobile, or employer's insurance policies) and may be applied after all other insurance. For complete coverage benefits and exclusions regarding this protection, go to www.wellsfargo.com/ctp.

Note: Call your cellular provider (or sign on to their website) and request to set up automatic payments. Setting up automatic payments is not required to qualify for Cellular Telephone Protection; however, you need to pay your monthly cell phone bill with your eligible Wells Fargo Consumer Credit Card to get up to $600 protection.
