Wells Fargo Credit Card Requirements
General requirements: You must be at least 18 years old and have a physical U.S. address to be eligible for a Wells Fargo credit card. You will also need to provide your SSN or your ITIN. No minimum income stipulated, but be sure to include any sources of income outside of wages and retirement benefits, if applicable. Documents such as birth certificates, drivers’ licenses, and Social Security cards are not required, but in some instances, you may be asked to provide copies in order to verify your personal information.
Wells Fargo also issues a number of retail store cards that generally have more lenient approval requirements, as applicants with fair credit or better (a score of 640) can get approved.
Other factors such as your income, debts, housing payments, and your general ability to afford credit card payments will also be taken into consideration when evaluating an application.
It’s also worth noting that you may not be eligible for introductory APR’s, fees and/or bonus rewards offers if you opened another Wells Fargo credit card within 15 months of your application.
