OP asks who has it. With WF you just don't know. We all might have it!

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.

 


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.

The cell phone coverage might be very useful to the right person, but IMO that just makes the card that much more of a 'niche' product in that if someone has very specific needs it is an excellent product; otherwise it's very 'meh' for most of us.

 

I also agree completely about the lack of a sign-up bonus making the QS a clear winner for most people; if you don't have a use for the cell phone coverage it would take quite a bit of spending to make up for the $100 you lose by not going with the QS.

Re: Wells Fargo new 1.5% Card

It's a rather... bright yellow color.

 

The main attractions for me were:

1) 15 months @ 0%. Even with the 3% BT fee, it still saves me money

2) Cell phone protection. I had a squaretrade warranty on the two phones I'm leasing, but this will cover them as long as I pay the T-Mobile bill on the card

 

Drawbacks:

1) They gave me a Visa, not a Visa Signaure. Not a huge deal, just odd given the 15K limit

2) The interest rate after the 0% is stupid - something like 18%. They'll need to fix that if they want me to keep the card after the intro rate

 

Other experiences:

1) They were very quick with the BTs. I couldn't do them online though - had to call. They did Chase and Discover, but I had to mail a check to NFCU.

2) Everyone I've spoken with has been quite friendly and easy to work with.

3) I've had the card for about a month now, and it's still not reporting. The first statement closes tomorrow I think, so I'll keep an eye out for it to report.

Re: Wells Fargo new 1.5% Card

Just got mine! I'm going to use the WF wallet to get my $10 statement credit. I'll also use the wallet when I'm out and about to get the 1.8%. Will do a BT now that I got the limit raised.

Re: Wells Fargo new 1.5% Card

Fascinating...I took a look at the card on the WF website.  While the 1.5% rewards benefit looks very interesting, the go-to APR's lowest available range value of 13.24% V makes it a no-go for me in terms of apping.  (Already have several 1.5% rewards cards with lower APRs, and not really looking to add any new, double-digit variable APR cards to my collection at this time.)

Re: Wells Fargo new 1.5% Card

Hey UB,

Was playing around with my WF online and found a credit card management option that I had never seen before, it allowed me to move 5k from my WF rewards card (had 15k cl) over to a 2 year old secured card that just graduated (crazy WF) and they even gave me a $100 increase. WOW!

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

You can redeem your CB once it hits $25.
