RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- To help customers know where their credit stands and how to better manage their credit, Wells Fargo & Company will launch two initiatives to encourage consumers to take charge of their credit situations:
1.Free Credit Score. A free credit score for every Wells Fargo consumer customer.
2.Credit Education. Support of the American Bankers Association’s Get Smart About Credit day on Oct. 18, 2012.
From Oct. 1 through Nov. 15, 2012, all Wells Fargo consumer customers have complimentary, no-obligation access to their credit score and credit report. Customers can take part in this program by visiting a store and obtaining a unique access code from a Wells Fargo banker. Typically, if consumers wish to check their credit score, they either pay a flat fee or they sign up for a service such as credit monitoring or identity theft protection and pay a monthly fee.
In support of the American Bankers Association Education Foundation’s 10th annual National Get Smart About Credit day on Oct. 18, 2012, Wells Fargo will launch a month-long campaign to reach out to communities across the country and talk about the importance of credit and how to use it responsibly. Throughout October, team members will use the curriculum from Hands on Banking®/El Futuro En Tus Manos® to talk with young adults about the importance of managing their credit and using it wisely to reach their financial goals. The company has set a volunteerism goal of 60,000 hours.
