You can activate your U.S. Bank credit card either online or through the issuer’s mobile app. If you need assistance activating your card, call customer service at (800) 285-8585.
The process doesn’t take more than five minutes, regardless of which option you choose. You’ll need to provide some personal information to complete the process and begin using your new card. The required info includes your Social Security number and your new card number.
Here’s how to activate your U.S. Bank card:
- Online: Go to the U.S. Bank’s credit card activation page. If you’ve already enrolled in U.S Bank’s Online Banking, then click the button that says “Log in and activate”. If you haven’t enrolled yet, click the second button that says “Enroll and activate”.
- Through the mobile app: Download the app for Android or iOS and log in to your account. Then, select “Manage Cards”, tap on “Activate Card”, and select “Continue”. After that, provide your card information and last four digits of your SSN, then tap on “Activate”.
Online activation options from the major banking institutions have made activating your credit card easier than ever before. If you don’t activate your card, you’ll have trouble making purchases with it. This might seem like an inconvenience, but it keeps us safer from fraud.
