How to activate your credit card
Activate your card over the phone
To activate your new credit card by phone, simply call 1 (877) 205-3142. It takes less than a minute. Also, the initial recording will tell you to sign the back of your card – this is not necessary for cards issued after October 9, 2022.
Tip: Call from your primary phone number (the one associated with your credit card account) for a smoother activation.
Activate your card online
To activate your new credit card online, start by signing in to your Meridian online banking account. Next, go to your Credit Card page, and choose ‘eZCard’ from the ‘Select an action’ menu.
Once you’re in eZCard, go to the Account Services page and select the ‘Card Activation’ link under Account Management. After that, simply enter your card expiration date and confirm activation.
A note for authorized users who are not Meridian Members
If you are an authorized user on a credit card, but not a Meridian Credit Union Member, you can access eZCard directly without going through Meridian Online Banking. Simply register by going directly to eZCard.
Explore eZCard’s features and options
Now’s the perfect time to go to eZCard and familiarize yourself with everything it offers. Go to your account services page and make sure your contact information is accurate, find your rewards balance, check out the variety of alerts you can use to monitor your account, and more.
