You can check your Wells Fargo credit card application status online or by calling 1-800-967-9521. If you’re already a Wells Fargo customer, all you need is your username and password. If not, you’ll have to provide your last name, birthdate, Social Security number and the access code that Wells Fargo emailed you when you applied. If you prefer to call over checking your status online, the phone line is open 24/7.
It should only take a few minutes to check your status and find out whether your application is approved, denied or still pending. You should get a final decision within 7 business days of applying. Approved applicants will get their card within 10 business days of approval. You can learn more below.
How to check your Wells Fargo credit card application status:
By Phone: Call 1-800-967-9521 between 5:00 AM and 7:00 PM, Monday through Friday. When prompted, say, “Check the status of my application.” Then, enter your Social Security number.
Online: Use Wells Fargo’s application status webpage. You can check your status using your Wells Fargo login credentials. Or, you can use your last name, date of birth, Social Security number and an access code that Wells Fargo will email you when you first apply.
Email: Simply click “Check Your Application Status Now” in one of the emails you’ve received from Wells Fargo.
If your application is approved, your card should arrive within 10 business days of the decision being reached. However, if Wells Fargo denies your credit card application, you will receive a letter explaining why. If you believe the rationale doesn’t really apply to you, you can request reconsideration by calling 1-800-869-3557. But this is a long shot.
