card for the wife wells fargo or boa?

We just checked her reports and they are all right around 730s mostly 0 balances.

 

Im wanting to pick up a card just for her. Everything we have is joint, except the new ML+ card that I have coming. I think it would be a good idea to at least have one card with a different issur besides chase and nfcu. Amex hates her and discover seems to turn her down everytime. So open to ideas, dont need a cash rewards or anything, just a normal low interest credit card. I think we have hit our max limit at NFCU and Chase  so.... ideas. her inquries are around 6-8 most from car shopping and 2 from ge for paypal and lowes

Re: card for the wife wells fargo or boa?

It's kinda hard to force your way through a CLI when the account is only open for 6 months. Best of luck on that anyhow.

As for your wife, either company is good. BofA has better rewards than Wells Fargo but Wells Fargo has a lower interests rate generally and CLI can be SP.
JPMorgan Palladium (100k), AmEx Platinum (NPSL), AmEx SPG (46k), AmEx BCP (42k), Chase Sapphire Preferred (47k), Citi Prestige (31k), Citi Thank You Preferred (27k), Citi Executive AAdvantage (25k), JPMorgan Ritz-Carlton (21k), Merrill+ (15k), US Bank Cash+ (22.5k), Wells Fargo (12k), Bloomingdale’s (12.4k), Chase Freedom (5k), Discover IT (5k).
