Activate My Card

Bento cards can be activated by business owners, admins, and employees.

If you are the business owner or an admin, you can activate any Bento card (Employee or Utility) on your account. We recommend doing so online, which takes only a few seconds.

There are two ways to activate your card:

Online (fastest and recommended)

Go to the "Manage Cards" tab, find the name of the card you'd like to activate, and enter in the last four digits of the card. Click "Activate" Your card is now ready to use!

Over the Phone (toll free)

Call (855) 547-2896, follow the prompts and enter all information as it was provided when you signed up or created the card.

Please make sure you have the card on hand and the following information ready. 

  • DOB
  • Mobile phone number
  • Card expiration date
  • Business zip code
  • SSN (only prompted for the business owner's card)

Note: For Utility Cards, the DOB and mobile phone number should be the Business Owner's. 

If you are an employee on the account, you can activate your own Employee Card by calling (855) 547-2896.

Please make sure you have the following information ready before calling. The information must be the same as what the business owner or admin entered when creating the Employee Card.

  • Your DOB
  • Your mobile phone number
  • Card expiration date
  • Business zip code
