- Wescom Credit Union is offering a bonus of $500 after $2,500 in spend within the first three months on the Bruin Edge Visa card
- No annual fee
- Card earns at the following rates:
- 5 points per $1 spent on select UCLA Purchases
- 1.5 points per $1 spent
This is obviously a huge bonus by itself, but Wescom also has a $250 checking bonus and you can get an additional $250 when you qualify for a loan product. It’s not clear if you could effectively stack that with this $500 bonus and get a total of $1,000. Either way just this bonus by itself is a great deal and we will add it to the best credit card bonuses. Obviously we have no idea how strict they are on approvals or any of that other information so please share your experiences in the comments below.

Nathaly I can refer you if you haven’t been referred yet 🙂
How can i open an account without living on south california?
need a referral. please email firstname.lastname@example.org so i can open an account
is that to apply for checking account or the credit card ?
Hmm it’s for the checking. Is there a referral for the credit card?
Davis The referral is for a checking account. You need to be a member already or become a member first when applying for the Bruin Edge Visa card. And becoming a member requires you to open at least a savings account with $1.
The checking account referral bonus is valid only for onboarding non-members, so you’ll miss out on this if you go for the credit card first.
You can maximize your gain by 1) first signing up for checking account through a referral, then 2) signing up for Bruin Edge Visa.
Could you or somebody please refer me as well? email@example.com. Thanks
Davis Would you like to refer me, too? My email is gingerrootsoft-at-gmail-com, thank you!
How exactly do you sign up for the Wescom CU under referral?
It took me to a page to apply but for undergraduates and graduates only? https://wescom.studentchoice.org/
Good things come to those who refer friends to Wescom — and your friend X wants to take your friendship to the bank where you can earn up to $200 each! It starts when you open a Wescom Checking Account with a $100 deposit.* Here’s how:
Open a Wescom Checking Account with a $100 deposit = $50 each (Use promo code RAF when opening your new account)
Achieve Signature Membership within the first three months of account opening = another $50 each
Achieve Platinum Signature Membership in that same time period = an additional $100 each
That’s a total of $200 each — for both you and your friend!
Banking is Better with Friends!
To get started, open a Wescom Checking Account online (https://www.wescom.org/Accounts/Checking) or at any branch.
Offer only applies to non-members referred by a Wescom member and is not applicable with any other offer. Checking Accounts must be opened with a $100 deposit at time of opeing for both parties to qualify for the initial bonus. Offer ends December 31, 2023. The new member must achieve Signature Membership during their New Member Period (the first three full calendar months after the date of joining Wescom ranging from 90 to 120 days) and/or achieve Platinum Signature Membership during that same period for both parties to qualify for additional bonuses. Referring member does not need to be present when new member opens a Wescom Checking Account to qualify. Bonuses will post to accounts the month after new member opens a Checking Account, after the new members achieves Signature Membership, and again after new member achieves Platinum Signature Membership. Signature Membership terms and conditions apply. Visit wescom.org for complete details. Bonuses may be subject to IRS reporting. Consult your tax advisor. Youth Accounts, UTMA, Club/Fiduciary Accounts, Wescom employees, their families, Wescom volunteers, and Wescom Board of Directors are not eligible for this offer.
so click on the link above and type in that promo code. i think you need to sign up with the same email to link the referrals together.

I’m looking to open a Wescom Credit Union checking account and am looking for the referral where we can get up to potentially $200 each. Please reply with your email if you have a Wescom membership and I’ll send you a message to reply with the referral link. Thanks in advance
Nick If you still need a referral, I’d be happy to send you a referral invite! Please email me at gingerrootsoft-at-gmail-dot-com with the following info:
1) Your first name
2) Your last name
3) Your email address which you’ll use to sign up for Wescom
Didn’t get approved right away. Applied as alumni with an @ucla.edu email address. Am at 8/24. Strangely, didn’t get any email confirmation of the application. Any idea how long it takes to hear back?
Has anyone signed up successfully who is not a CA resident?
I submitted an application 2022-12-29 and received the message, “We are carefully reviewing your application and a team member may reach out for more information.”
Tried applying for this and had to call them twice to confirm income. Now, they’re asking for me to qualify for membership for the credit union. Is anyone here willing to share their name and membership number so that I can qualify? I do not meet the criteria above and they require hard proof of living in Southern California, being affiliated with UCLA, or having friend/family that are members of Wescom. I believe the only option for others will be the friend option that is already a member. If anyone can please help, that’d be much appreciated. Just wanted to share this with others before applying as it seems to be a major roadblock.
I can give you my membership number and name, go ahead and send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) – if you’d also like, they’re currently running a referral offer for the checking account (separate from the visa), so let me know in your email if that’s of interest to you and I’ll send you the referral instructions and code. Thanks!
Hi, I’ve emailed you for a referral, cheers
ColJDerango Sending you an email for a referral, thank you!
To confirm, is anyone getting approved for this without actually qualifying in this way?
“I live, work, worship, or attend school in Southern California counties
I am a family member of a Wescom Credit Union Member
I am affiliated with, or support, UCLA”
Thanks in advance.
