Wells Fargo is offering up to $35 in new checking account bonuses and $50 in referral rewards through September 30, 2012.
New customers can open a Wells Fargo Checking Package through a current customer’s referral to receive a $10 bonus.
Plus, you’ll get an extra $25 bonus when you set up a direct deposit to your new account.
Current Wells Fargo customers will earn a $10 bonus for each new customer that you refer for up to a total of $50 in referral rewards.
You can first sign up for a new Checking Package and then participate in the referral program to earn a total of $85 in cash rewards.
This offer is only available at participating Indiana/Ohio, Iowa/Illinois, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska/Kansas/Missouri, North Dakota/South Dakota/Western Minnesota, Wisconsin/Michigan/Chicago, and Wyoming region Wells Fargo banking locations.
How To Participate in Wells Fargo Referral Program
The Wells Fargo referral program is only available at branches with an original referral form.
Current customers can request referral forms at your local Wells Fargo branch, and you must then provide your referral with the completed form.
Referred customers must then bring the completed referral form to a Wells Fargo branch when you open your account.
Up to $35 New Wells Fargo Checking Package Bonus
To qualify for the $10 bonus, the referred customer must be a new Wells Fargo consumer checking customer.
The newly referred customer must present an original Refer-A-Friend bonus offer form (photocopies cannot be accepted) and open and fund a new eligible Wells Fargo Checking Package checking account with a $100 minimum opening deposit (not including the $10 bonus).
If all eligibility requirements are met, both parties will receive the $10 bonus at the time the new customer opens and funds the new account.
To qualify for the additional $25 bonus, the new customer must establish a qualifying direct deposit into the new Wells Fargo Checking Package checking account within the first 60 days of opening and funding the checking account.
A qualifying direct deposit in your salary, pension, Social Security, or other regular monthly income of $100 or more that is electronically deposited to your checking account by your employer or an outside agency.
Qualifying customers will receive the additional $25 bonus no later than 60 days after the first qualifying direct deposit is made to the account.
Wells Fargo New Account Promotional Details
All Wells Fargo Checking Packages are eligible for the new account bonuses except College Combo.
There is a limit of 1 $10 bonus and 1 $25 bonus per new customer.
The newly referred customer is only eligible for these offers if Wells Fargo has not given you any bonuses in the past 12 months.
Wells Fargo up to $50 Referral Bonuses
Existing Wells Fargo consumer checking customers can participate in the referral program.
You can earn up to 5 $10 bonuses as a referring customer for a total of $50 in cash referral rewards.
Wells Fargo team members are not eligible for this offer.
You can first earn the new account bonuses and then participate in the referral program for a total of up to $85 in cash rewards.
Wells Fargo Referral Exchange
If anybody would like to earn the new account bonuses for Wells Fargo, please feel free to Email MaximizingMoney@gmail.com, and we will be more than happy to send you the current customer’s information that is needed to complete the referral form.
However, since an original referral form is needed, you will need to visit your local Wells Fargo branch to request a referral form, which you can then complete with the current customer’s info yourself before opening an account.
If you just go to the counter at the branch and explain that a current customer is referring you, but you just need to get a form to complete first, I’m sure they would be willing to assist you and not have a problem with providing the form to you (or just ask for a referral form without explaining anything first).
If you have any problems attaining a referral form as a non-customer, I would be willing to mail you a completed referral form if you are sincerely interested in opening a new account.
If you are a current Wells Fargo customer, you may also feel free to provide your contact information in the comments section below this article, so that potential new customers may also request a referral form from you.
The needed referral info is the current customer’s name, phone number, address, city, state, and ZIP code.
I just noticed this Wells Fargo referral program being promoted when I visited my branch today, so take advantage of this offer while it’s available.
The old Wachovia Referral Program before they became Wells Fargo was one of my favorites, so hopefully, Wells Fargo will expand this program past September 30th and indefinitely into the future.
Sign up for a new Wells Fargo Checking Package account and refer your friends to earn up to $85 in total cash rewards.
