I try using the wellsfargo verify app and the only card it list is my wife's debit card. I called the number and they said they verified it, but passbook still tells me waiting for verification. Tried deleting the card and trying again, but still nothing.

Anyone with similar problems?

I tried to add my debit card at about 4:15pm today and I just got the notification about 15 minutes ago that it was added to passbook. My wells fargo credit card was added within about 5 minutes of me verifying it. Funny thing is my capital one card was ready in passbook immediately.

CapitalOne was pretty slow to activate cards. I suspect some banks are being slammed more than others and it's causing issues with people adding cards. You might want to try it again in a while, or see if your card gets activated later.

takes about 15-30 minutes after calling Wells Fargo for the card to be activated in passbook.

Bank of America was annoying and required a call. First Chase card worked via text. Second Chase card and all subsequent cards say it's not supported by the bank. I thought we were allowed 4 cards. I'm at three if I include my iTunes card.
