They graduated me October 30th. Will officially go in effect on December 3rd. Hopefully I will get the money back just before Christmas. It will definitely help

You will get back your security deposit very soon. I'd be surprised if you haven't recieved it by the end of the week. When mine was unsecured the money was returned about 3 days after they notified me. It took a couple weeks to get the new card and I could still use the new card until then. The new card has no AF.

 

Congrats.

Re: Wells Fargo graduation!!

Just curious but did the graduation come electronically or by mail? What was the process like?

Re: Wells Fargo graduation!!

The graduation came by mail. Not a single notice on the Website. Just a piece of mail. My card turned one year In October. I had been told I did not qualify for a graduation and would be considered in April. Then out of no where I received this notice. I was told by a CSR that there is no CLI included, but my money will be refunded. As of December 3rd, the option to request a CLI will be available and I could try then.

Re: Wells Fargo graduation!!

Still waiting on mine.  Partially unsecured right now (700 on deposit, 1100 CL).  I called last month and the month before - no dice.  One CSR tried to go the "app for a new account" route, which I promptly refused.  Kathy Mattea had a great song back in the 90's that comes to mind as I write this "Time Passes By".

Re: Wells Fargo graduation!!

I was told that I wasn't approved in the October graduation so I went ahead and applied for a rewards card..I was approved for a $2,500 limit and was very confused as to why they hadn't graduated me.  I also got my graduation letter today for my $500 secured card, I called and was told that I will receive final confirmation on the 3rd of December. 

 

So my question is that if I decide to increase my deposit before I receive my original deposit back will it increase my chances of getting a higher credit increase? Any thoughts on the matter? I am thinking on putting another $1000 on it tomorrow...

Re: Wells Fargo graduation!!

I got the same letter Monday!  I am curious how long it takes to get the new card.  I am scared to call in cause I don't want to jinx it.  Also I would like to know since my secured card was 1000, will that be my CL with the new one, or will they look to increase or decrease it?

 

Thanks!

thats what i am going to do if dont qualify for the April graduation (when i am eligible)...i will just apply for the unsecured card and hope for the same resutls. My secured card has a limit of 3000. and have a good payment history with them and my balance has been no higher than 850, just sent a 500 payoff payment.

Re: Wells Fargo graduation!!

Good luck to you guys!!

 

As of today 11-10-2012 I still havent received the refund or new card. Not in too much of a rush. Just hope it comes before the next reporting date, because the refund of the deposit will go towards paying off all my credit cards, and once again have under 9% util on all my card...Fingers crossed!! When i put 250/300 and 260/376 on my cards i saw a drop of almost 40 points on Equifax. Getting those points back will surely help!
