Many thanks for the link, Will! Business Extra can be a very useful program for regular AA flyers. We’re happy to see the new updates to the program such as daily posting and online booking capabilities that show investment in the program and hopefully suggest that it will stick around for a long time to come. ~Craig

The Wells Fargo story is the exact reason I am reluctant to do the $400 bank bonus. I want to do it for the cash flow but I just don’t want to deal with Wells Fargo on any level ever again.

I have no problem taking money from them

I don’t blame you, potatoslayer. They forced me to change my username AND password at least 15 times within a week, for no apparent reason. Their “security” appears to be clueless. As soon as I get my $400 I’m out of there, never to return.

yeah right… as soon as you are eligible for another bonus to churn… you and I know we will both be hitting the wells fargo well again… just be honest with yourself..

Years ago we applied for a mortgage refinance from WF, having no idea of their reputation. We were sent a good faith estimate that included my husband’s personal information and the information of a random woman from a different state. We were livid.
While applying for the same application they offered us a credit card, to which we replied no thank you. Some time later we received a denial letter in the mail. This was after receiving the good faith estimate. We were again livid, and slightly insulted by the denial. Two weeks later the new credit card arrived at our home. The same one we didn’t apply for, and had been denied. Needless to say we didn’t use them to refinance our mortgage.
Two years ago we both opened accounts to receive bonuses. I would normally handle my husband’s accounts as much as possible, as he approved but preferred not to deal with the minutiae. A few weeks after opening the accounts we received a notice that my husband’s account was negative 52k. Of course my husband had to handle dealing with them. WF insisted he deposited a company check that bounced. They threatened him with additional fees daily for having a negative balance. When he requested they pull the check and compare the information to his information they claimed it wouldn’t be possible to do for several days but the notices of fees didn’t stop in the meantime. They required my husband to come into a branch in person, but there are only 2 branches near us with hours not convenient for people who work during the day. They eventually fixed it but convinced us that even their bank bonuses aren’t worth the potential trouble. Every interaction we have had with them, they have screwed up.

Wow. I’ve heard horror stories but that’s one of the more intense ones. And across multiple products as well. Thank goodness they showed their true colors BEFORE you had a mortgage with them.

People… seriously. Stop banking at Wells Fargo. Use a Credit Union. There is zero benefit to being with Wells Fargo.

Lol dude’s waiting for an apology but I’m sure the settlement check they offer him will be a good enough apology.

Also, that’s why if the police accuse you of a crime, you call a lawyer, not the police. Even if they mean well, you can still go to jail and be tried for something you didn’t do

This guy had never had any negative interactions with the police before and had no idea what he was getting into, apparently.

At the last the Huffington Post didn’t disappoint me, somehow managing to blame Trump (“from Trump-appointed federal regulators”) for something that police in one of the most Democratic states in the country did.

If you actually read more than two words past that, the story also included the previous administration in the lack of oversight on the banking industry.

Your own bias shouldn’t disable your ability to read.

Obama isn’t running for any offices ever again, so it doesn’t make a difference if they make one sentence saying a negative thing about him. Plus, Obama was mentioned way down in the article. The bottom line is, this has absolutely nothing to do with Donald Trump, yet they somehow managed to blame him. There are plenty of things to blame Trump for, but not this.
