To get a Credit One Platinum PIN, call the number on the back of the Credit One Platinum card and ask customer service for a PIN. Another way to get a Credit One Platinum PIN is by logging in to an account online and requesting a PIN through the Credit One website.
Best Way to Get a Credit One Platinum Credit Card PIN
Call Credit One customer service at 1-877-825-3242 or call the number on the back of your Credit One Platinum credit card.
Inform the representative that you want a credit card PIN.
Receive the PIN in the mail, over text, or by email. It’s unlikely that Credit One Platinum customer service will be able to provide a PIN over the phone.
If your credit card had a PIN in the past, but you’ve forgotten or misplaced it, Credit One may tell you to look for the PIN before they generate a new one. It may be listed in credit card-related mailings or your online account. And if you need a PIN for a cash advance, it’s important to note that cash advances have high fees and interest rates, so you’ll generally want to avoid them whenever possible.
Finally, keep in mind that even though the Credit One Platinum credit card has PIN capabilities, it’s still a signature-preferred credit card. This means it may not work at unattended kiosks abroad, like in a train station or parking garage, but you should have little trouble elsewhere.
You can get a Credit One credit card cash advance from an ATM. That means you’ll have to pay a fee each time, in addition to the ATM owner’s surcharge. And interest will immediately begin accruing at a very high rate. So, it’s best to avoid cash advances unless it’s an emergency.… read full answer
It’s also important to note that you may not have access to much cash, even if you decide to do a cash advance. Cash advance limits tend to be much lower than a card’s spending limit. And Credit One credit cards have a minimum spending limit of just $300.
Today Wells Fargo and BB&T would not give me a cash advance at their ATMs with my Credit One credit card. So the question again is are there any specific Credit One Bank ATM locations to use, or what banks will take a Credit One card?
To activate a Credit One card, call customer service at (877) 825-3242. It is not possible to activate a Credit One card online. The activation phone number will also be printed on the decal affixed to the front of the new card. As a security measure, Credit One recommends calling from the telephone number that you listed on your application. You will have to provide that number to customer service, anyway, if you call from a different phone.… read full answer
When you call, enter your 16-digit credit card number. Because the number is for a card that has yet to be activated, the call will automatically route to the Credit One card activation menu. You can use either the voice automated system or, when prompted, connect to a customer service representative. You will then need to provide your birth date, your Social Security number (SSN) and the card’s 3-digit security code.
Credit One does not provide an instant card number to use before the card arrives, which is usually around 10 business days after you’re approved. When you receive the card, you won’t be able to make any transactions on it until you activate it. Once activated, your Credit One card will be immediately available for use.
There is a deadline to activate, however. Credit One may close the account if you do not activate your new card within 14 days after you receive it in the mail. If this happens, you will not be able to reopen the account; you will have to re-apply for a new card.
