What is the difference between my Account Activity and a Wells Fargo Online Statement?
Both your Account Activity screen and your Online Statements show your transaction history and are free of charge. Here are the key differences:
- The Account Activity screen shows all of your recent and pending transactions for the past 60-90 days.
- Wells Fargo Online Statements are electronic versions of the monthly paper statements that you receive by mail. They include transactions from a set period of time (a statement cycle) and do not include any pending transactions.
For example: Your credit card statement shows the transactions you made before the statement closing date and the current amount owed. Your credit card Account Activity screen shows the past 60 days of activity, including pending transactions and transactions that occurred after the statement closing date.
