To activate a credit card, call the number on the back of the card or go to the website listed on the activation sticker attached to the card. Credit card activation typically requires the credit card number, the security code (CVV), or both.
The exact steps required to activate a credit card depend on the card issuer, so it’s best to follow the instructions printed on the sticker that comes on your card. If you’ve lost your sticker – or you’re just wondering – here’s a quick reference guide to credit card activation with some of the biggest card issuers.… read full answer
Here’s how to activate credit cards from major issuers:
It’s important to remember that some credit card issuers will require your Social Security number or other information to verify your identity when you activate your card. Once you’ve activated your credit card, you can use it immediately.
You can use a credit card before it arrives in the mail if it is an American Express credit card or one of a handful of other offers, including the Apple Credit Card, the Uber Credit Card, the Capital One Walmart Credit Card, the PayPal Credit Card, and some store credit cards.

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 the only card issuer 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 these cards won’t necessarily give you the credit card number, and your purchasing options may be limited.
Similarly, some credit cards that you can use before the actual card arrives - like the Walmart Credit Card and the Uber Credit 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. Others, like the PayPal Credit Card, are more versatile because your credit line becomes available on your PayPal account – meaning you can use it to buy anything that accepts PayPal before your card comes in.
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.
