How to Activate a Debit Card Online By Greyson Ferguson, eHow Contributor

Found This Helpful How to Activate a Debit Card Online thumbnail

When you receive your debit card in the mail from your financial establishment, you must activate the card before you can use it. There are two different ways to activate the card. The first is to call the phone number listed on the sticker affixed to the front of the card. The other is to go online to activate the card. Activating the debit card online allows you to skip all the electronic prompts of calling the listed number.

Things You'll Need
  • Debit card
  • Internet access

Instructions

  • 1. Open up your Internet browser. Look on the front of the Debit Card. A removable sticker is over the front, displaying both a phone number and a website. Type the website address into the URL bar of the Internet browser and hit "Enter" to go to the website where you can activate the card.

  • 2. Select "Activate My Card."

  • 3. Type in your name and Social Security number (if asked) in the new window that opens.

  • 4. Fill in the entire 16-digit Debit Card number, followed by the date of expiration and the security code listed on the back of the Debit Card (this is the three-digit code on the right of the card back).

  • 5. Select a pin code for the card. This is a code that allows you to withdraw money from your account by verifying that you are the account owner.

  • 6. Click "Activate" and the debit card activates online. You can now begin using the debit card.
