To activate your Indigo Credit Card by phone, enter your Social Security Number and follow the prompts to get connected with a customer service representative. Once you’ve activated your Indigo Credit Card, you can use it immediately.
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 Indigo Credit Card 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, Genesis Financial Solutions 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 Indigo 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.
