Bento cards must be activated before they can be used.
There are two ways to activate cards: the primary account holder can either call the number on the sticker on the card to activate or activate them online.
To activate Bento cards over the phone, call the toll-free number: 855-782-1827. Make sure you have the card on hand because you will need to enter the card information in order to successfully complete the card activation flow. .
To activate Bento cards online, first make sure you have the card on hand. Go to your People & Cards page and click "Activate" next to the card you want to activate. You will see a screen that asks for the last four digits of the card. Enter the digits to activate the card.
