Re: Wells Fargo Platinum Pre-Approval

When you app for a student card you need to put what school you are attending right??

Re: Wells Fargo Platinum Pre-Approval

It kind of reminds me of the CITI card that everyone was applying for when they were not a student but to get that card they had to go that route

Re: Wells Fargo Platinum Pre-Approval

It was a glitch in the application process for CITI. You would just the college part blank when applied for it and the application would go through.

Apply then day Hey I thought it said what year did Ib graduated from lol Smiley Wink

Re: Wells Fargo Platinum Pre-Approval

You had received a pre-qual, and you are right as far as your acct must not have been converted if you have been graduated for 12 years. I work for WF and we have 50 year olds coming in with College CC prequals. If you have credit history built already then you should be just fine applying or the rewards or cash back card. Should not be a problem. If you want me to personally take a look at it then you can PM me. There are certain ways to structure apps to increase likelihood of approval. Take care.
