I got it to use for my down payment when Wells Fargo couldn't do 100% financing when I purchased my home 2 years ago (dumb, I know!).Wells Fargo Financial is the subprime division of Wells Fargo. In addition to the insane 19% interest, they also charge a fee when you withdraw cash using this card - which is the only way you can use it other than requesting a check that you write out. It doesn't function as a credit card, but does report as "revolving" and reports your credit limit and current balance each month.I called recently to see if they could increase my limit which is currently $5K, and the rep said they can't do CLI's on those cards and transferred me to see if I wanted to get a HELOC "NowLine" of credit.I think this card is useless once I pay it off. Maybe just let it sit on my report reporting my limit. I also thought maybe they would do a product change to a regular credit card, but I doubt it because they are subprime anyway, so I'm not sure I would want one of those cards and I'm not sure they would change it to a regular Wells Fargo credit card.Just my thoughts...

Account is Open
Maybe this helps?? I guess it does state "Line of Credit", however there is the credit card icon at the top and it does state "Revolving." No negative factor that has been listed for me though that I've noticed...

His reports on his as a revolving account too. I think we will just keep that little puppy in the sock drawer for now..possible ever for that interest rate...So Elexi there is no way to get a CLI on this card.he currently has a 1200 CL. Maybe to 5K?

IT WAS ME COWPADDI!!! *waves hands* well my BF rather..he has the cash on demand card NOT a WF CC...this i know for sure and it reports a a revolving line of credit. I think i might get him to ask if they can go lower on that interest rate or give a CLI. No worries about the BT thing I have never done one and don't need to at the moment.

The myfico report that I have does not ding it as a cfl.Whoever had that 19.9% they do offer lower rates. Mine is at 18%. See if they will reduce your apr.You can also do a bt by calling them. I think this is the only way to avoid a bt fee. But with their rates the apr on the card transfering from would have to be quite high.
