The Wells Fargo Home Projects card is sponsored by a particular home improvement or building provider - but as far as the customer is concerned, it is just another sponsored Visa card same as if it were issued by say an airline - usable for anything at any place that accepts Visa cards, home improvement or not - you can buy food or jewelry or gas or whatever with it - subject of course to your credit limit. So - check yellow pages listings for contractors you screen on Angies List (or it may indicates on their AL profile) for whether they accept Visa or not, or ask when you call. Generally speaking, home improvement services provided by stores do (including a large percentage of flooring/carpet vendors), as do most nationwide franchise outfits and a large percentage4 of "emergency" type service providers like electricians, plumbers, sewer cleaners, etc - independent contractors, especially for new construction or major remodels, commonly or generally do not accept credit cards.

Here is a link to a search engine at Wells Fargo where you can look for Projects Card sponsor companies - but there are far more out there who accept Visa but are not WF card sponsors.

Note of course, that while it may be necessary for emergency work if you are short of liquid funds, unless you are sure you can pay off the bill on the next billing statement, that using a credit card for home improvement purposes is nearly the most expensive way to finance it. FAR cheaper to go with a commercial lending institution.

This is supposed to be the directory of such firms -

Note that the card itself is supposed to be accepted at any vendor who accepts VIsa - though the special payment terms for home improvement projects do not apply unless the vendor enters them specifically as a Home Projects transaction.


There have been a lot of complaints about he card - evidently they have issues different ones for Flooring, Interior, and Outdoor categories so your version might not work for the different categories.


Here are a few other previous questions about the card program which might be of interest to you:

The card is no longer a Visa card and is no longer excepted like one. I'm not sure how you use it now but they sent new cards and they told us it's the Visa feature is no longer available.
