Good morning everyone. As part of my July App-O-Rama, I was instantly approved for the Wells Fargo Propel World Credit Card. The credit card has not arrived in the mail yet, but the new credit card is already showing up in my Wells Fargo online account. I also discovered that you can view and activate AMEX Offers on the Wells Fargo mobile app and on the desktop website. In this post, I will show you how to view and activate AMEX Offers on the mobile app and on the desktop website. To get started, sign into the Wells Fargo mobile app and then click on the Wells Fargo Propel World Credit Card (which runs on the American Express network). Then click on the Find My Deals button.

Good morning everyone, I hope your 2 day Prime Day shopping spree is going well. Even though I didn’t buy much on the first day of Prime Day, I did pick up a few new credit cards. My last App-O-Rama was in March, so I patiently waited 3+ months until my July App-O-Rama. As a reminder, I was approved for 3 out of 4 credit cards in my March App-O-Rama, including the American Express Gold Card, the US Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Signature Credit Card, and the Wells Fargo Business Platinum Credit Card. With those minimum spending requirements completed and the sign up bonuses redeemed, it was time to focus on these 5 credit cards. Here is a quick summary of my July App-O-Rama:
- Citi Premier Credit Card – instantly approved
- American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card – pending, then approved (I called AMEX and had to close an old card to open up a credit card slot)
- Barclay AAdvantage Aviator Business Credit Card – pending, then declined (too many recent inquiries)
- Banco Popular Avianca Vuela Credit Card – instantly approved
- Wells Fargo Propel World Credit Card – instantly approved (I called Wells Fargo to apply for this credit card over the phone)
Citi Premier Credit Card
I currently have a Citi Premier Credit Card that I have had for 4+ years, but I wanted to get another one since the sign up bonus is currently 60,000 Citi Thank You Points after spending $4,000 in 3 months. If I was approved for a second Citi Premier Credit Card, my plan was to downgrade/convert my old Citi Premier Credit Card into a Citi Rewards+ Credit Card.
Good morning everyone. A few days ago, I got a few letters from Wells Fargo which contained my new Wells Fargo Business Platinum Credit Card. I applied for this credit card as part of my App-O-Rama at the end of March and was approved a few days after applying (I didn’t do anything other than wait for the approval). I will show you the various letters I received from Wells Fargo and show you how to add the credit card to your Wells Fargo online account (it was not super obvious). Here is the front and back of my new credit card. I was expecting a metal card but it is made of plastic. One cool thing about Wells Fargo is the ability to upload an image and have it printed on your credit card (more details below).
Good morning everyone, happy Friday! As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I did a mini App-O-Rama (where I apply for several credit cards on the same day) on Monday. I am still waiting for most of the credit cards to arrive in the mail, but I have all the results. Here are the results of my March App-O-Rama (sorry there is nothing related to NCAA March Madness in this post):
- American Express Gold Card – instant approval (I wrote about the instant approval here)
- US Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Signature Credit Card – pending and then approved (I will have a post out later today with my unboxing photos)
- Wells Fargo Business Platinum Credit Card – pending and then approved
- Bank of America Alaska Airlines Business Credit Card – pending but will be denied since they want a lot of business and tax documents (I will explain more below)

US Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Signature Credit Card
After my instant approval with the American Express Gold Card, I was feeling good and hoped my instant approval streak would continue (like the good ole days when I would go 6 for 6 on credit card App-O-Ramas). But instead, I got a pending decision and decided to wait and see what would happen.
Good morning everyone. During my recent App-O-Rama (final tally: 4 approved and 2 declined), I planned on applying for the Wells Fargo Cash Wise Visa Credit Card. The credit card earns 1.5% cash back everywhere, has no annual fee, and offers a $200 cash back sign up bonus. I planned on meeting the minimum spend requirements to get the sign up bonus and then putting the credit card in the drawer. I had an older Wells Fargo Propel World World American Express Credit Card that had the $175 annual fee billed. I planned on applying for the Wells Fargo Cash Wise Visa Credit Card and then move all the credit from the Wells Fargo Propel World World American Express Credit Card to the Wells Fargo Cash Wise Visa Credit Card. Unfortunately, while I was applying for the Wells Fargo Cash Wise Visa Credit Card, I was stopped by the 15 Month Rule…
