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?

Re: Unexpected Wells Fargo Secured Card Graduation

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.  :smileyhappy:
