If you’ve been approved for a new line of credit through Bank of America, then the fastest way to activate your credit card is through the online banking portal. Sign into your account with your online identification and passcode. This will confirm your identity, verify the new account, and activate it in just a couple of minutes.
If you have not signed up for online banking through Bank of America, you can enroll now to activate your card. You can begin the process by clicking on the following activation process.
Click on the “Sign in to Online Banking” blue button on the bottom left to enter your ID and passcode to begin the process. Otherwise click on the “Enroll in Online Banking” blue button on the right to begin the activation process for your new Bank of America credit card.
What If I Do Not Want to Enroll in Online Banking?
If you do not wish to enroll in online banking through Bank of America, then you can contact a customer service representative through the general services toll-free number to begin the activation process. Dial 1 (800) 432-1000. Outside of North America, you can still use this number. Just include your toll-free access code while dialing based on your specific location.
Social media users may also prefer to contact Bank of America’s customer service department through Twitter to begin the activation process. You can visit the customer service account.
You will likely still need to complete the activation process over the phone, as Bank of America will not share or ask you to share personal information over Twitter.
Bank of America also invites users to chat online with a customer service representative when on their primary website. The chat box is secure. You will need to sign into your online banking profile to access this option, however, so it may be easier to complete the activation process through your profile instead.
If none of these contact methods are convenient for you, it may be possible to complete the activation process at a local Bank of America financial center. You can also contact them via mail if you prefer. This information can be located by visiting the main site.
From there, just click on the menu items that are desired. You will then be taken to your preferred credit card activation process.
