Your First Premier Bank Mastercard could be declined for a number of reasons. Reaching your credit limit is the most common, or you may have made an unusual purchase, which First Premier flagged as fraudulent use.
In some cases, the issuer might shut your card down because of a threat, such as making online purchases from an unsecure website or from a store that may have used illegal credit card skimming. It could also be that a hotel or rental car company issued a hold on your card.
Either way, you can sort this out easily by calling customer service at 800-987-5521.
If you just received your card and it was declined when you tried to activate it, the most probable scenario is that there is a technical issue with either the issuer, First PREMIER Bank, or with the ATM in question. Try activating your card at another ATM. If that doesn’t work either, please call customer service at 800-987-5521. Hope this helps!
