Wells Fargo is once again providing access to free credit scores and complimentary credit reports to its consumer customers from March 1 – April 15, 2013. And, to help encourage consumers to set financial objectives, the company has also launched “Share Your Goals,” an online, social media sweepstakes that will put $10,000 in the hands of one grand prizewinner. An additional 12 sweepstakes participants will each win a $500 Wells Fargo Visa® gift card – for a total of $16,000 in cash and gift cards to 13 randomly-selected consumers simply for sharing their financial aspirations.
“By deliberately setting a financial goal, a consumer is taking the first step toward achieving it,” said Tom Wolfe, head of Wells Fargo’s Consumer Credit Solutions Group. “Whether you’re preparing to buy a car or thinking about how to fund a college education, understanding your credit situation and how to strengthen it puts you in the driver’s seat to make the best choices to achieve your financial goals.”
About the Free Credit Score Promotion
From March 1 – April 15, 2013, all Wells Fargo consumer customers have access to a free, no-obligation Experian® custom VantageScore® and a complimentary credit report.
Customers can take part by visiting any Wells Fargo location and asking a Wells Fargo banker for a brochure containing a personal access code. After customers review their credit score and credit report, they may choose to meet with a banker to discuss their credit situation. Typically, if consumers wish to check their credit score, they pay a flat fee or sign up for a service, such as credit monitoring, and pay a fee.
About the Share Your Goals social media sweepstakes
Because knowing what you want to achieve financially is an important part of good money and credit management, Wells Fargo is also launching Share Your Goals, a social media sweepstakes. From March 1 – April 15, 2013, participants visit shareyourgoals.wellsfargobank.com and use the #ShareYourGoals hashtag to share their financial aspiration. During each week of the sweepstakes, Wells Fargo will randomly award a $500 Wells Fargo Visa® gift card to two winners. At the end of the campaign, Wells Fargo will randomly select a $10,000 grand prizewinner, for a total of 13 winners and $16,000 in cash and gift card prizes. No purchase is required to enter.
Promotions are available from March 1 to April 15, 2013.
