The Wells Fargo business card rewards program gives the choice of 1.5% cash back on all purchases or 1 point per $1 spent on all purchases (worth a little over 1 cent each). This choice applies to all three Wells Fargo business rewards cards: Business Platinum, Business Secured and Business Elite. Both the primary cardholder and authorized employees are eligible to earn rewards. Rewards are automatically credited to your account every quarter. If you choose the cash back option, you can redeem it as statement credit or bank deposit. If you choose points, they’re redeemable for travel, gift cards, merchandise, charitable donations and more. You get the highest value on points redeemed for travel and the least on merchandise. You must enroll in these rewards programs to take advantage of them, but doing so is free.

There are three ways to redeem Wells Fargo points: online, by phone, or through a Wells Fargo ATM.

These two methods require you to redeem points in $25 increments if you want gift cards or cash back. The cash back options are a check, a direct deposit, or a statement credit toward a Wells Fargo account balance. For travel and merchandise, you can redeem points up to your available rewards balance, regardless of the amount.

You can earn Wells Fargo rewards points –officially called “Wells Fargo Go Far Rewards” points – with three cards: the Wells Fargo Propel American Express Card, the Wells Fargo Rewards Card and the Wells Fargo Visa Signature Card. Keep in mind that transactions such as cash advances and balance transfers do not earn rewards points – only purchases do.
You’ll get the best value for your Wells Fargo rewards points if you spend them on travel, cash, statement credits, or gift cards. You may even be able to catch the occasional sale on gift cards and get them for fewer points than normal.
