Wells Fargo Secured Visa Card


The Wells Fargo Secured Visa Card can help you get back on your feet and reestablish healthy credit scores.

This is a secured card, meaning it requires a security deposit upon account approval. Your credit line will be equal to your security deposit. You will need to provide a minimum security deposit of $300, up to $10,000.

This card allows you to check your FICO Score 9 for free, based on your Experian credit report.

There is a $25 annual fee, and it requires an existing Wells Fargo checking or savings account to apply.

With responsible use of this card and credit in general, you may be graduated to an unsecured Wells Fargo credit card.
