Wells Fargo has changed for the better!
Jgriffith11 Cardholder

Applied for this card, After already getting a personal loan from Wells Fargo a Month ago. This bank used to be very strict only relationship based now they are more lienent. My CK score was 640, and My Experian was 680 that's what they pulled. $3000 CC Approved 0% Balance Transfers. Wells Fargo is amazing coming from a year ago with all of the scandals, They have changed and are working to assist customers and have changed their products for the better. Wells Fargo is Amazing! I have a checking, savings and loans with them now and the customer service has been very helpful, and they are able to assist in all your needs. I recommend this card to anyone wanting a balance transfer. Once in the door with Wells Fargo they are kind to you.

A basic no-fee card with no benefits
PilotBen Cardholder

I got this card as a secured card with $800. Then about 8 months later they converted it to an unsecured card and refunded my deposit as agreed. The deposit refund only took a day or two. Several months later they upped it from $800 to $1,200.

FICO was 620 or so when I applied and I have had the card for about 2 years now. It's good to have in the wallet to help lower credit utilization, but it is sock drawered. I will use it to buy a stick of gum every few months to keep it active, but there are far better no-fee cards that don't have such strict credit score requirements. It's not a BAD card. It's just not a GOOD card.

This was my 2nd card (kind of). WF started me out with a student card while I was in college. Once I graduated this is what my student card turned into. I’ve had this card for about 5 years now, and I’ve closed all of my other WF accounts due to all of the headaches, but have kept this open due to it being my oldest account. Save yourself the time and energy and go elsewhere, it’s not worth all the crap you get from WF

hits the credit score HARD!

I applied with a 720 credit score to do a balance transfer, got approved but it hit my credit score for 30 points, 30!!!!! I didnt apply for any other credit, this was the only one, so BEWARE!! If you are working hard to get your score up, dont apply!!!

ANY hard inquiry would have done the very same thing to your score. Why are you blaming WF?

Apr 16, 2019

It's not Wells Fargo's fault you got hit for 30 points...it's the credit bureau's!! Do your research before you blast a creditor!

You also probably have 1 card or 2 with long history. When you aplly for a new one. Your average drops drastically so that hits hard too. You got double the hit. Should climb back up after a few months. Need to change your review. Smh

Got this card in 2008. Started with $600 as a full time shift supervisor in retail. My girlfriend was a minimum wage part time cashier and started at $1000. She got automatic increases that put her over $2000 by the year and up to $5000 in 3 years. I never received an automatic increase. I have to call and only get $500 at a time. I’m currently at $2500. I have a chase Sapphire at $15,000 and a Bank of America card at $19,000. If Wells has not been my first card, I would have CANCELED IT!!!

credit score >730 by all 3 bureaus for the last 3 years.

Well, you are catching up to your girlfriend. I've got $100 on you beating her in a photo finish in 2 years. You were my #1 pick in my credit card fantasy team.

Ripping off
Denys777t Cardholder

This card is worst think you want to apply. I opened a secured credit card before (never had any history). Right now I had 2 car loans (one paid off in full), 4 other credit cards, never had missed payment. My FICO is 748 and that keep holding my credit limit the same. Some time ago I applied for increase and it was denied. Had couple bad experiences with them. Because of my issues with them had to close saving, business debit and regular debit cards. . Do not open that card, read reviews. Please, keep yourself safe.

The interest rate on this card in my state is 22% APR.  When did banks decide to become like the pay day loan companies?  It's ridiculous.

Just about every CC is 20+%. People who pay interest on CC are, well lets just say, not educated on credit.
