Re: Unexpected Wells Fargo Secured Card Graduation

I hope it does for you soon.  I was completely shocked and was thinking it wouldnt happen until Oct at the earliest.  When I called a week ago to add some additional money to the card,I asked about it.  I was told I wasn't eligible yet so was like ok.  My other banking relationship must have had something to do with it.

You sure deserve it especially with a 9.5K deposit on your secured WF cc. I've been thinking about increasing mine. Do they SP when you ask to increase the deposit?

There must be something in the air at WF then, because I was thinking it would be October before I could graduate too.  I opened my secured Visa with them in June 2012, and when I got home last night I also had the "Congratulations - you're upgrading" letter in my mailbox too.  Happy surprise!

i dont believe they did.  i did the deposits in hopes that the higher limit would help with getting higher limits on new cards.  hopefully it helped.  i hope they give me a limit of at least 6k on the new card.  also, for all of those with the secured card did anyone have the cash rewards added too it?  i had it added back in march but i nevef see anyone talk about it.

Re: Unexpected Wells Fargo Secured Card Graduation

They added the cash rewards on my secured cc around march as well. I remember calling the backdoor # to ask about the annual fee and if my card was going to graduate in April. The CSR was able to add the rewards before he transferred me to a credit analyst.

Re: Unexpected F Secured Card Graduation UPDATED: 7/9/2013

Don't know if flashevo or brikays received their cards yet, but I hadn't, and decided to give Wells Fargo a call.

 

Justin there told me that my actual graduation date was June 30th, though I'd received the letter back in the middle of May.  I reviewed the letter again, and there was no indication of that date anywhere.  The closest thing to a date was a maybe-insinuation via a mention that if you prefer to decline the offer and keep the secured card, call by 6/29/13.

 

Just thought it was worth a mention in case anyone was concerned that their letter/new card was misdelivered, it could just be poor communication on WF's part.  Smiley Happy
