To activate an Ink Cash credit card, call the number on the activation sticker that’s attached to the card or go to the Chase activation website, which will also be noted on the sticker.
Your new Ink Cash card will be ready to make purchases in just a few minutes no matter which method you use to activate it. Chase does not have a certain time limit within which you need to activate your card, but it’s best to do it as soon as possible.
How to Activate an Ink Cash Credit Card
By phone: Call 1 (888) 489-7249 or the number on the sticker attached to the front of the card. Verify your personal information (e.g. Social Security number, card number, or phone number associated with your application) to activate your Ink Cash credit card.
On the website: Log in to your Chase account (or create an account if you don’t have one) and find the activation page. Enter any required security information, including your credit card number. Activate your Ink Cash card as instructed.
Your new Ink Cash credit card will be available for purchases immediately after activation. If you have any trouble activating your card, Chase customer service can always help you out. You can give them a call at 1 (800) 432-3117.
Yes, you can use a credit card before it arrives in the mail, but only with certain cards. If you want to use a credit card early, you must either have an American Express or Capital One credit card or one of a handful of other offers, including the Apple Card, and some store credit cards. Normally, you can’t use a credit card without restriction before it arrives, because you can’t see the full credit card number, expiration date and CVV until you have the card in hand.… read full answer
Credit cards that you can use before arrival
Cards from certain issuers: If you need to start using a credit card today, you’ll likely want to consider applying for an American Express credit card. Amex is one of the few card issuers that will give out a full card number that can be used anywhere upon approval of an application. Capital One credit cards are also sometimes available for immediate use via the Capital One mobile app. But not everyone is eligible for this feature.
Co-branded cards: Some credit cards that you can use before the actual card arrives - like the Apple Card - only allow you to add the card to a merchant-specific digital wallet. So you’ll only be able to use it with that merchant until the card arrives in the mail.
Some store cards: There are a few credit cards that you can use instantly after approval, like the Fingerhut Credit Card. But you can only use this card for purchases at Fingerhut.
Lastly, it’s worth noting that you can ask a credit card issuer for expedited card delivery – in some cases, this will get the card to you the next day. Finding a card that you can use before it arrives in the mail might seem less important with that in mind.
You can check your Chase credit card delivery status by calling Chase customer service at (800) 432-3117. You’ll just need to provide your full name and ZIP code. If you’re waiting for a business credit card, you’ll have to provide the business name as well.
It takes about 7 to 10 business days for a new Chase credit card to arrive once it’s been sent. For a replacement Chase credit card, it will take 3 to 5 business days. New cards are sent out a few days after approval while replacement cards get sent out soon after the request.… read full answer
How to request expedited shipping with Chase
Chase will expedite shipping for new and replacement cards at no charge, upon request, getting you the card in 1-2 business days. Just contact Chase customer service at (800) 945-2000 to have the card rush shipped to you.
Here is a recap on Chase credit card delivery status:
Online, you’ll need to access the verification page and sign in to your online account. To verify a Chase card over the phone, enter your 16-digit card number and the last four digits of your Social Security number when the system prompts you. Both types of verification will only take a few minutes.
Create a Chase.com account by clicking "Not enrolled? Sign up now." if you haven’t already, and log in. To create an account, you'll need your Social Security number as well as you card, account or application number.
Check your credit card number and click "Next" to verify your card. Then, click "Go to accounts" to view and manage your account.
