Hate waiting to redeem your credit card rewards? You might be in luck: Wells Fargo now allows eligible customers to withdraw accumulated rewards from ATMs in the form of cash.

Eligible Wells Fargo cardholders can also go through the Go Far Rewards portal and redeem rewards for:

  • Cash (in the form of a check or account credit).

  • Travel.

  • Gift cards.

  • Merchandise

  • Digital downloads.

  • Charitable donations.
