How do I activate my card?

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

As a business owner or Admin with Full Access permissions to Cards, you can activate any Bento card 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)

  1. Go to Cards 
  2. Enter in the last four digits of the card you're activating
  3. Click or tap Activate

Phone (toll-free)

  1. Call the number of the back of the card (855) 547-2896
  2. Follow the prompts and enter the information as it was provided when you signed up or created the card

Please have the card on hand and the following information ready:

  • Date of birth
  • Mobile phone number
  • Card expiration date
  • Business zip code
  • Social security number (only prompted when activating the Business Owner card)

Note: For Utility Cards, the date of birth and mobile phone number is the business owner's information. 

If you are an employee, you can activate your own Employee Card
