How to Activate a Tangerine Credit Card
The Tangerine MasterCard has been garnering a lot of attention for its great cash back reward perk and lack of an annual fee. Many Canadians have gravitated to this low-APR card – and Tangerine in general, as it is a bank that seems geared towards customer service and solid financial products. (Among them are high-interest paying, no fee savings accounts and no-hassle checking plans.)
If you’ve been approved for a Tangerine credit card, you will need to activate it before using it to make a purchase. We’ve outlined the steps to activation below:
Activate Your Card Online
Online activation is a simple matter of logging into your Tangerine account. Proceed to the “My Accounts” tab and click the option for activating a card. Once you’ve entered the required information and verified the numbers on the card, just click “done” and you’re all set.
Activating a Card Over the Phone
I’ve you’ve been approved for the credit card, you should already have an active Tangerine account. It’s recommended that you activate your card through this account rather than by phone. If you’re unable to connect to the internet or have some other problem, you can activate over the phone.
