Autumn is a season of change. It’s also the time of year when our office, school, and group event schedules get more structured and busy. And sometimes, with all this added activity, it’s hard to stay organized.
That’s where we come in! One way we can help is with free Online Statements. By going paperless, you can reduce the amount of paper that arrives in the mail, and your statements will be conveniently organized and available online anytime you need them.

And now’s a great time to go paperless because you still have time to participate in our Fall Online Statements Sweepstakes where you could win $25,000, or one of twenty $1,000 prizes1!
When you switch to Online Only Statements for qualifying products by November 4, 2011, you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win for every eligible account you switch to paperless delivery.2 So if you turn off paper for a personal Checking and Savings account, you’ll receive two sweepstakes entries. And if you turn it off for your Business Credit Card as well, you’ll be entered for yet another chance to win!
Wells Fargo ran its first Online Statements Sweepstakes in 2007, and since then we’ve given away cash prizes to 171 lucky winners. Since Wells Fargo began offering Online Statements, more than 570 million paper statements have been eliminated. This translates into an environmental savings of more than 185,000 trees, the avoidance of 46 million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions, or the equivalent of removing over 4,177 cars from the road each year!3
Choosing to switch to Online Statements4 can help you get more organized, have less paper clutter, and reduce the risk of mail fraud. So as you get back into your busy routine this autumn, take a moment to consider the benefits of Online Statements. The advantages can add up over many seasons!
