Wells Fargo Refund Policy

Every Wells Fargo client who suspects they have been charged with fees unfairly or are signed up for a service they didn’t apply for has a right to claim a refund from Wells Fargo.

How To Get a Wells Fargo Credit Card Refund

To get a credit card refund, first, request a refund from the merchant who charged the purchase to your credit card. When the merchant approves the transaction, they will send the information to Wells Fargo. A refund will be credited to your Wells Fargo credit card account—you can expect the money to appear there in a few business days.

In some instances, you may need to dispute the transaction in question in order to get a Wells Fargo refund.

Reasons for these include:

  • Merchants not delivering what was promised and still not wanting to issue a refund
  • Fraudulent purchases
  • Billing errors

How To Dispute a Transaction

There are a few ways you can dispute a transaction. Choose the most convenient option for you:

  • Call the bank’s dispute department at 1-800-390-0533
  • Log in to your online account and go to Dispute a Transaction under Account Services

In both cases, you’ll need to provide evidence on why you shouldn’t be responsible for the charge. The dispute usually gets resolved within a few weeks.

How Long Will You Have To Wait To Receive a Wells Fargo Refund?

If you are returning a purchase, the Wells Fargo refund to your credit card might take anywhere from a few minutes to several weeks.

If you are disputing a charge on your monthly statement, the process can take up to 150 days. By law, you need to state the problem to the bank that issued your credit card within 60 days. They have to resolve the issue within 90 days of being notified. It is important to note that simpler disputes can be resolved faster.

How Can You Check the Status of Your Refund Request?

You can check the status of your refund request on the Wells Fargo website by accessing your account. It is also possible to call their Customer Support and ask for more information.

How To Request a New Credit Card

If your Wells Fargo credit card was stolen, lost, or damaged, you can always request a new one from the company. You need to sign in to your account and request your new replacement card. It is easy and fast. You will get your new card in five to seven calendar days.

You can also go to your local Wells Fargo bank and request a new credit card in person. If you suspect that a fraudulent action has taken place, your card will be blocked. You will receive a new credit card and a PIN code.

Unfortunately, Wells Fargo will not reimburse the amount of money that was stolen from your card. Wells Fargo has another service to offer, called the Wells Fargo Credit Defense Refund. It is a service intended to pay a fixed amount of money to your credit card account in the case of involuntary disability, unemployment, or hospitalization. You need to pay Wells Fargo a fee of $0.89 per every $100 from your ending monthly balance. If you have a balance of $1000, Wells Fargo charges $8.90 for the month.
