Wells Fargo’s Awesome Signup Bonus Tracker Tool

Via Milenomics, Wells Fargo has a signup bonus tracker in the online login. The tracker gives all necessary information, including:

  • Confirming you have a signup bonus attached to your account
  • The details of your bonus offer
  • Tracks your spending progress towards the minimum spend requirement
  • Clarifies when you’ve completed the bonus and when you can expect it to post

Images via Milenomics:

Not sure if this tracker is new or has always been there, but it sure is nice to see. We also don’t know whether the tracker shows for business credit cards.

We wrote about how Amex introduced a signup bonus eligible tracker – that was a great first step. But really every major bank should have a tracking system like this Wells Fargo tool. Chase has a similar tracker for category bonuses, they should make one for signup bonuses as well. Citi does have a signup bonus tracker, as per this Frequentmiler post.

On a different note, Milenomics notes being able to confirm that personal and business cards run on different timelines: getting a business card signup bonus will not preclude getting a personal signup bonus within 15 months, as per the Wells Fargo 15-month rule. Reader Mark has a similar data point as well. This matters for a lot of people who got the $500 Business Platinum bonus and want to signup for the soon-public $300 Propel personal signup bonus.

Too bad they couldn’t have a tracker for checking account related bonuses

I logged in just to check. Yeah, it sucks.

Yeah, I’m still waiting for my $300 biz checking bonus from February, doubt I will ever see it.

I received mine. It took two months.

I completed the requirements ($1000 deposit and 5 ATM transactions) by March 28 and got the $300 on May 23.

Agreed!!!!!!!! I. Just finished 3rd month of 10x Amazon reloads for checking bonus today… Can’t wait to get this bonus and close the account.

I’m sorry, where do I find this tracker? Looking all over for my Cash Wise Bonus tracker

Nevermind, I found it. It doesn’t look like the one above for me, but I do get the message “Congratulations! You have a pending bonus since you have met the total Net Purchases spend as of today.” so I’ll take it. Now I just need to wait almost 3 months for my spend period to be up, and then 1-2 billing cycles to receive my $200…

Note: One has to wait 90 days PLUS 1-2 billing cycles.

Wells Fargo has one of the worst consumer friendly policies when it comes to cultivating good will (also known as public relations) for these (come bank with us!!) bonus incentives.

My experience with Chase and BOA is way better with regard to incentive activity. And, also, in branch customer service is better at the latter, IMHO.

Sure, it’s nice to know there is verification of a bonus, but it’s like ordering a steak at a well referred restaurant at 630pm, only to have it delivered to your table right before closing at 10pm. I know I wouldn’t return.

I met my spend at “7pm”.

To qualify for the $200 cash rewards bonus, a total of at least $1,000 in net purchases (purchases minus returns/credits) must post to your account within 3 months from the date your account is opened. The bonus cash rewards will show as redeemable within 1-2 billing periods following the end of the 3 month offer period.

Tracker has been around for some time now. I applied for the Propel card back in April when there were rumors of discontinuing. Have observed the tracker since my first login..

Tracker was attached to my Cash card signed up for in Oct 2017. I agree, it’s a great tool.

It’s been there for several years, but was(still is?) hard to find on some browsers.

Cool, very useful.

Good to hear the data point about business and personal. I have been waiting on the business bonus for quite a while and got Propel World Bonus last year.

Is there a tracker on biz Plat? Couldn’t find it

It was always there i guess. I had it on my Propel World when i signed up early this year.

How do you find the tracker? I just got the biz platinum and logged into my account and can’t find any link to any kind of tracker. Where is it?
thanks.

When i click the go far rewards account- the home page of the rewards page has this. And for those that wonder how long it takes for the bonus to post- its exactly 90 days from activation of card.

Amanda Moors
Amanda Moors

thanks. I tried that and it doesn’t show any kind of tracker for me. Maybe because its a business card?

My personal card has the tracker, business card does not.

Well that’s good. Especially important for Wells Fargo since they take literally forever to post your bonus after you have met spend. I’ve often called them multiple times months apart to confirm the bonus is still pending.

Speaking of trackers, does anyone know a way to tell the exact dollar amount either in spend or UR for the Chase tracker. I can see the nice graphic, but it is showing very close to the $75 limit. I would like to know how close I am in numbers without having to download a CVS and make the totals. Is there a way?

Jamie

I have wondered the same thing. I could not figure it out except for to add up all the dollar amount spends for the bonus category purchases.

Will the tracker show multiple bonuses? On the old view I could see the status of my $200 sign up bonus and the Mobile Wallet Bonus.

I was unaware of this tracker, it would have been useful to have known about it 6 months ago when I signed up for the Cash Wise card. I echo everyone else’s experience with WF paying out the bonus. You have to wait for the 3 months intro period is over PLUS at least 1 or 2 billing cycles before you get it. I got my card last December, met the spending requirement before the end if the year, and didn’t get the bonus till this month (June) after I called and spoke to a supervisor.

That’s disappointing, to say the least. Sorry you went through that.

Please forgive me, but I hope they are doing better on that, considering their ongoing television ad campaign that not just improvement, but RENEWAL started in 2018!
