  • Receive a sign up bonus of $150 when you spend $1,000 in the first 3 months

Card details:

  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 1.5% cash back on all purchases with no limit
    • 1.8% cash back on all Apple Pay & Android Pay purchases for the first twelve months
  • No annual fee
  • 0% Introductory APR for purchases and balance transfers for first 15 months
  • Cash back can be redeemed in increments of $25 ($20 for ATM withdrawals)
  • Cell Phone Protection insurance, up to $600 with a $25 deductible

Previously this card came with a sign up bonus of $100, but we have seen targeted bonuses for $200.

Our Verdict

It’s no longer possible to put high spend through only the 5% categories on the first six month cards, but a $150 sign up bonus makes them more attractive even if you can’t put a lot of spend through them. $150 isn’t one of the highest cash bonuses, but it also isn’t one of the worst. These cards could make sense for some.

I’m sure you’ll have questions about Wells Fargo credit cards, just make sure you read this post first to see if any of those questions are answered.

Looked through the FAQ you linked but didn’t see this. If you’ve had other cards (say, Propel) is there a restriction on getting the bonus from one of these?

Also, credit reallocation is a hard pull. Any reason that lowering credit limits on existing cards would be a pull? Have 8k and 11k with them, thinking of lowering to 2k each to try and get a high CL on a 5% WF card.


Was there ever a definitive “too much” that got people shut down or any other pattern?


Also, has anyone ever gotten Wells Fargo to match a bonus within the three month period?


I have a WF normal credit card, no fee but without any cash back or reward. That’s my first CC so I don’t want to cancel. Is there any chance I can ask for an upgrade to this CC? Moreover, is it possible that the upgrade comes with sign up bonus?


Applied for the Cash Wise credit card on a Saturday, and the card arrived the following Friday. Only given a $3500 credit line, but should get $150 bonus after $1k spend in 3 months.
