The Wells Fargo Platinum card credit score requirement is 700 or better. That means people with good credit or better have a shot at getting approved for the Wells Fargo Platinum Card.
You should note that while your credit score is an important factor, there are plenty of other things that will impact your chances of being approved for the Wells Fargo Platinum Card, too. Some other key criteria include your income, existing debt load, number of open accounts, recent credit inquiries, employment status and housing status.
If you excel in other areas, you might be able to get approved with a slightly lower credit score in some cases. But it’s best to wait to apply until you meet the Wells Fargo Platinum credit score requirement. You can check your credit score for free on WalletHub.
You will need at least good credit to get the Wells Fargo Platinum card. That's a credit score of at least 700. Anything lower may result in a rejection, although they won't look at your credit score alone.
Your income, debt, past negatives, hard inquiries and more will give them the big picture.
Having one of these Wells Fargo credit cards may increase your chances of landing a higher-tier credit card in the future, if you use it responsibly. That means paying your bill on time every month and keeping your credit utilization below 30% of your credit limit.
It’s important to remember that these are the lowest credit limits you’ll start out with if you’re approved for an account. You could receive a higher limit. And the actual limit you’ll receive is based on your credit history, income, employment status, level of debt and more. Unfortunately, you won’t know how much your credit limit will be until you’re approved. Wells Fargo does not publicly disclose its maximum credit limits.
If you accept the initial Wells Fargo credit limit offer, you can request an increase in your credit limit after at least six months of timely payments. Also, after six months, Wells Fargo may review your account for an automatic increase. Eligibility is based on things such as payment history and your total amount of debt. But there’s no guarantee when, or if, an automatic increase will occur. An automatic increase uses a soft inquiry, which means your credit score is not affected.
Keep in mind that the higher an applicant’s credit score, the higher their approval odds are likely to be. But approval depends on many other factors as well. For example, applicants will need to have enough income to make payments on the card, and higher income generally leads to better approval chances. Other factors that will play a role in approval include existing debts, monthly housing payments and more.
Unlike many other major credit card issuers, you unfortunately can’t check your Wells Fargo credit card approval odds before you apply since the bank doesn’t have an online pre-approval tool. However, Wells Fargo does send out pre-approved offers by mail. If you receive one, it means that your approval odds for that particular card are high, though approval is still not guaranteed.
