To cancel a Wells Fargo Platinum credit card, call customer service at 1 (800) 642-4720 and ask a customer service rep to cancel your card account. Cardholders can also cancel an account in person at a Wells Fargo branch.
Be aware that if there’s a balance remaining on the canceled account, you will still need to make at least the minimum payment every month until the balance is paid in full. You will also need to update the payment method for any recurring charges linked to your Wells Fargo Platinum card.
