Turbo bank is a fairly new online banking service that's rising in popularity. It's so easy to access that you can even open an account and pick up a card through the bank's smartphone app. However, it's not as simple as getting a card and using it straight away. In this guide, we're going to cover how to activate your Turbo debit card. You can do this in a few ways, and you'll find the one that suits you best below.
The easiest way to activate your Turbo debit card is by visiting the bank's official card activation site. Once there, you'll have to input your card details and personal data associated with it. After that's all done, the card will be active and ready to use in any instance you require it.
The following are the methods that you can use to activate your debit card.
As we've already mentioned, activating your card is easiest through Turbo's official website. This site will walk you through the process of activating your card with your own personal details.
Prepare this to activate your Turbo Debit Card:
- Card details – including the long card number, expiration date, and last three digits on the back of the card.
After you've entered these, the site will walk you through activating your card using any other required details, such as your Social Security Number.
2. Over the Phone
The Second-easiest way to activate your Turbo card is by contacting them over the phone.
- The number to call is (888) 285-4169.
A member of staff will answer and can talk you through the activation process. They'll need the same details as their activation site would, the card number, expiration date, and last three digits on the back.
It's likely to take longer to activate your card over the phone because you'll need to prove your identity to the person you're calling. They'll ask you for personal details that you might not have to hand. As a result, you could spend more time searching for details than you would while activating the card online.
3.Use Turbo's Official Website
The final method in our list is the official Turbo bank website. This is the website you'll use to check your balance online, transfer money from a computer, or get in touch with turbo support. Outside of the smartphone app, it's the main method used to get online with Turbo.
- Go to the website – Log in. You'll have to use your Username and Password to do this.
- Once you've logged in, you'll see a button at the top of the screen called “Activate Card.”
The link will take you to the first method in this list. It's the same page and can be used for any Turbo card, including a debit card. From there, the process of entering your card details and personal details is the same as it would be if you went to the activation page directly.
Those are the three key ways in which you can activate your Turbo debit card. When you receive the card in the mail, it will almost certainly list all of these in the letter that accompanies the card. Ensure that you follow our links or the ones in the letter directly if you want to avoid dropping in on the wrong bank.
The one thing that you should keep in mind is that you must have your card in your hands when activating it. You'll need details from the card that you won't find anywhere else.
