I called Wells Fargo to confirm the deal. My wife was envious when I got a fat check from the previous deal.
I showed my sympathy by calling to confirm the deal is still around. They renewaled it.

No reason to get stuck with some eco-box. Do it right at a $25000 deposit for a $250k car. Cool

Well, when the pulling starts it is usually soft, and then it gradually gets hard as the pulling continues. Then once you have "credited" all over it gets soft again and that is when the pulling stops.

2/13 - Received snail mail with my account number, still no charges on my credit card.
2/14 - Made $25 cash deposit in person at Wells Fargo branch.
2/15 - Received email confirmation of opening deposit; was able to log in and view my account online (was prior customer and my logon was still valid).
2/17 - Received email notification for debit card shipment.
2/21 - Received debit card & PIN in the mail.
2/22 - Completed 10 debit card purchases.

Details on the $10 Wells Fargo Wallet for Android bonus:


https://www.wellsfargo.com/jump/m...go-wallet/

Other FAQs:


Method of payment for 10 purchases does not matter; can be done using Debit Card & PIN or as Credit Card.
Link to reload Amazon gift card (minimum $0.50 per transaction, you might want to consider using different amounts for each purchase to avoid triggering WF fraud system): https://www.amazon.com/asv/reload...ur_balance
Account can be closed immediately after receiving bonus, there is no requirement to keep it open, or a penalty to close it at any time.
Account maintenance fees are supposedly waived for the first 64 days (per other SlickDeals users).
You don't need to sign or send back any paperwork.


Hope this helps.

Does not say that anywhere.

FYI I live in CA and have had a moving violation in the last 5 years and was able to get the bonus last time around.
