Do you need to activate a new credit card

Answered By: Eric Griffin Date: created: Sep 27 2021

For security, a credit card usually needs to be activated once you get it in the mail, before you can use it. Even if the physical card is un-activated, the account can still be activated. When you apply for a credit card, you’re agreeing that you want the account open if you are approved.
