How Do I Activate My Fidelity Investments Card?

Fidelity Investments is one of the largest financial services companies in the world. They allow you to open various types of accounts, including brokerage and cash management accounts, among others.

If you have an account with Fidelity investments, then you have the option to get a card from them. The card can either be a credit or debit card.

The cards are limited to only one per account holder. Moreover, there are certain accounts that are eligible for a Fidelity Investments card, while others are not. Check the Fidelity Investments website for which accounts are eligible or not for either credit or debit cards.

The difference between the two cards is that the debit card allows you to withdraw money from existing funds in your account, whereas you are charged thereafter if you have a credit card. You can use a debit card to withdraw money from millions of ATMs all over the world.

There are plenty of benefits which the two cards share as well. One benefit is that you will earn Fidelity reward points when you use either of the cards. To earn these points, you need to adhere to the terms and conditions stipulated in the Card member agreement. You can access the Rewards Center via the website or mobile app to manage your reward points.

You will earn about two points for every dollar you spend using your Fidelity Investments card. To be more specific, you earn the points for every dollar you spend in net purchases. Check the website for the company's definition of net purchases.

Another benefit the cards share is enhanced security. The card uses contactless technology, which securely stores your personal information while processing your data safely and efficiently. It makes counterfeiting your card very difficult.

You will get transaction alerts in real time on every activity in which the card is used. Therefore, you can quickly be apprised of fraudulent activity on your card. You can then lock it or report it immediately. You can use the website or mobile app to lock or unlock the card at your discretion.

You can also add your card to your digital wallet and conduct transactions using your phone or tablet. Mobile and online card management is a vital aspect of owning and using a Fidelity Investments card.
