I have it. Looks like French's mustard.(but at least I can easily see it in my wallet).

I PC'd my Platinum to it. They are pushing it hard in the branches.

You can redeem your CB once it hits $25.

Got an invite 4-6 weeks ago (we have our mortgage through WF), approved $16k SL - have not really used it yet.

I saw this card a couple months back (not a fan of the look) but the CB seems good and thought about PCing one of my cards to it but was told it was almost impossible. How did you get it done? Was it fairly easy?

Re: Wells Fargo new 1.5% Card

Creditaddict,

I got the card too. I PC'd my platinum to the 1.5% cash wise. Requested an interest rate reduction and went from 21.5% on platinum to 13.24% on the cash wise.  Denied any CLI so still at $6,000 for me.

Re: Wells Fargo new 1.5% Card

It was discussed quite a bit a few months ago... but with the recent events happening with WF I'm surprised anyone wants to do business with them.

I don't bank with them!
Well actually I don't do anything with them😜 But partner has credit card and line of credit so just caught my eye.
I wouldn't charge on it for anything daily!😉

Re: Wells Fargo new 1.5% Card

I looked at this card when it first came out; it's not "bad", but it seems to basically be a Quicksilver clone.  I did note that while you have to get the rewards up to $25 to redeem, it appears if you redeem at an ATM the threshold is only $20... which isn't game-changing, just different from what I've seen before.

 

For some reason they really push their Propel Amex with me (online), which I'm not really stoked about, either.  Once all my 0% promos run out I might consider it for that (it has a 15 month 0% promo for new accounts) but they are offering me 18.24%, which is higher than all my other cards - even my rewards cards.

 

IMO, Wells Fargo credit cards are best for people who (for better or for worse) have deposit accounts at Wells Fargo, then at least you can link it for (expensive) overdraft protection. 

 

Recent events aside, I would advise anybody who's not already a Wells customer to look elsewhere for a credit card, since their offerings are easily beat by other issuers.

Won't ever touch WF no matter what they're offering. At some point people need to say enough is enough.

QS...but without a real bonus. A slightly increased cash back rate for a little while isn't much.

 

I've not closely examined the details of the cell phone coverage, but that might be a good feature for some people.

Spend: BofA PR + WWFCR, BBP, Schwab Platinum, CFF+CF, Costco, Discover
Perks: IHG49, Hyatt75, Delta Platinum, "Old" SPG95
SD/AAoA Ballast: Arrival, CFU, DC
Upgrade/downgrade games: BCE, EDP
SUB: JetBlue, Amex Platinum
Mostly earning MRs and cash back as I use up hotel and airline points spread across several programs.
