By Phone: You can 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 application ID number. If you don’t have it, your Social Security number works, too.
Online: Wells Fargo’sapplication status webpage allows you to check using either your Wells Fargo login credentials or 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 clicking “Check Your Application Status Now” in one of the emails you’ve received from Wells Fargo is an option, too.
Status Options & Timeframes: Your status will be approved, denied or pending. If your application is still pending, you should receive a final decision within 7 business days of applying. And if your application is approved, your card should arrive within 10 calendar days of the decision being reached.
Finally, 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.
