Wells Fargo & Company announced it has launched the Wells Fargo Home Rebate Card – a special credit card product only for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage customers who want to pay down their mortgage faster, build equity quicker and potentially save thousands of dollars on mortgage interest. Wells Fargo will begin promoting the card through in-store merchandising during its Spring Into Action campaign, which starts April 16 and focuses on financial solutions for the home.
“The Wells Fargo Home Rebate Card is another innovative product that can help our customers make smart use of their money and help them succeed financially,” said Peter Ho, Wells Fargo Home Rebate Card product manager. “Our pilot program showed us that our mortgage customers understand that with this card their day-to-day spending is better managed, better protected and better rewarded.”
Virtually every purchase (purchases minus returns credits) customers make with the card counts toward 1 percent rebate credited to the principal on their Wells Fargo Home Mortgage loan. The rebate is applied automatically in $25 increments, and there is no cap on the amount of rebate customers can earn. The rebate can help customers potentially save thousands of dollars on their long-term mortgage interest and lower the number of their remaining payments on fixed rate loans.
The Wells Fargo Home Rebate Card is protected by our WellsProtectÂ® program. The WellsProtect program provides cardholders with zero liability if their Wells Fargo Credit Card, ATM Card or Check Card are ever lost, stolen or used without authorization and cardholders promptly notify Wells Fargo. This means that cardholders are automatically protected against any unauthorized transactions made at merchants, over the phone, on the Internet or at the ATM. It also comes with VisaÂ® Warranty Manager, which doubles all written manufacturers warranties of three years or less.
Wells Fargo Home Rebate Card holders can use Wells Fargo’s free online money management tool – My Spending Report – to help better manage and protect their finances. My Spending Report automatically collects and summarizes Wells Fargo accounts into one powerful, online report. Cardholders can quickly review purchases and their month-to-month spending for easier money management and greater financial control.
Customers can opt to get their Wells Fargo Home Rebate Card with the VisaÂ® Contactless feature, the newest innovation in payment technology. Cardholders simply hold their cards near a secure reader at checkout instead of swiping them or handing them to a cashier. Cardholders are not required to provide a signature for most purchases under $25, and contactless merchants will not have to provide a receipt for purchases under $25 to cardholders (unless requested by the cardholder).
