Wells Fargo and AmEx

Postby Paavo » Wed Aug 07, 2013 4:52 pm

Today Wells Fargo signed up a deal with American Express to bring AmEx-branded credit cards into their offering. It's about the time for WF to bring some competitive cards!

From my pespective, they should at least match Fidelity's 2% cash back on everything, no AF, and no FTF. Anything less is no go.

Any rumors on the offering yet?

You beat me to it but I'm not happy about the deal at all. They just did the deal today. I have Wells Fargo and overall the bank is horrible. They are starting to charge everything up the wazoo and their credit cards are nothing to boast about. It will most likely be FIA based but there are no other details at this time.
Wells Fargo Platinum 2.100 (5/2011-cld 7/12/14)
AmEx Platinum (6/12)
Barclays Apple (6/12)
AMEX Gold Delta (5/13)
Marriott Rewards (7/14)

My credit score :cool:
EQ: unknown
EX: 762
TU: 752

FIA is a BoA subsidiary. I don't see how they would be involved.

I posted a link to the press release in my thread in General Credit Card Talk. Here's the quote that gives me hope:

"We want to give the customers who already carry our card – and the ones who don't yet – greater rewards and benefits for having a Wells Fargo card in their wallets. The breadth of our offerings, our strong retail network and the power of this new partnership with American Express position us well to continue to deliver compelling choices and experiences to our customers."

As part of the card-issuing partnership, American Express is providing its Partner Advantage capabilities and services to support Wells Fargo in developing a suite of products that will offer a superior set of experiences, exclusive benefits and customized offers from the American Express network, both online and offline. Separately, LoyaltyEdge from American Express will assist in the design of a new Wells Fargo loyalty program by offering a broad range of merchandise and gift cards that Wells Fargo's consumer credit customers will be able to redeem with their points.

LoyaltyEdge looks like crap - merchandise and gift card redemptions for points. I'm not interested. I have no idea what Partner Advantage is; a Google search leads to the press release and a LinkedIn profile for the woman who helped launch it. But, it could be decent, maybe...

Then again, there are plenty of cards that process on Amex's network that aren't worth a second (or first) look.

The founders for Amex and Wells Fargo were the same two individual. These two brands should have been "joined at the hip" from the very beginning.

Will I be able to switch my Wells Fargo VISA to an AMEX? If so, this is a great move and I would consider moving back to Wells for banking.
