jpr0204's review: Callout Comment Let me begin by saying that this was my very first credit card I had ever received. It was the Wells Fargo Platinum STUDENT Visa. They started me out at $700 credit limit and witin a year I was up to $1500 and a 13.9% APR. I NEVER missed a payment and was never late. About 5 years later I applied for a CLI and they said that 1,500 was as high as they could go on a STUDENT card. I would have close this card and apply for a Wells Fargo Platinum NON COLLEGE card. So, I did just that since I had nothing bad to say about Wells Fargo. I was approved for with a $3,000 CL but my rate jumped to 24.99 APR on purchases with a 757 FICO score. Believe me, I don't use it much as the rate is very high and every time I call to request a lower rate they say "you currently have the lowest rate available for this account". But, I will not close the account because it will take away from my "Total" avail credit which may lower my FICO score.

Remarks Wells Fargo has changed a lot and they are NOT the consumer (every day person) bank they used to be. Put this on your close list. It will likely not grow with you.
