Your social security number is required to activate your Green Dot credit card. If you never used a social security number then call 1-866-795-7605 to activate your Card. In the prompt you will hear what number to click to activate your new card. You will need to use the 3 digit code on the card to activate it.
The issue in GetHuman840268's own words
Activate my card so I could use it on an online purchase. ... I have tried to activate my card online, by calling, and on the app but I still cannot get it activated or get anyone on the phone! I am so upset because I really need to access this money for an online purchase. I am now considering not even having my direct deposit put on this card because of all the trouble that I am having!
This is irritating because I can't get the card activated, use my own money on it, or reach someone that can help me!
I want my card activated so that I can use my money. I put cash on the card for the purchase and had to buy a different card and pay their fees just to be able to make my purchase and I still can't access my money on this card!
I have used their products in the past. I bought this new card to start doing my direct deposits on it but I am really reconsidering it now.
I have tried calling every number I have found for them and reporting the issues on the site.
I have an issue with Green Dot too
