Intro APR period on Purchases and qualifying Balance Transfers
The Wells Fargo Platinum card has some attractive features if you’re looking to pay down credit card debt, including an APR of 0% intro APR for 18 months on purchases and qualifying balance transfers, and then the ongoing APR of 16.99% - 26.49% Variable APR. Its annual fee is $0.
The card also offers cell phone insurance worth up to $600 on covered damage and theft if you pay your monthly cell phone bill with your card. The coverage is subject to a $25 deductible.
The drawbacks? The card charges an introductory balance transfer fee of either $5 or 3% of the amount you're transferring, whichever is greater. After the introductory period, the balance transfer fee is up to 5% for each balance transfer, with a minimum of $5. And there are no cash-back rewards on spending.
After the promotional period ends, the card also has a relatively high ongoing APR.
