New Credit Card Help

Posted by SarahBear29 SarahBear29

Hi everyone. I am about to apply for a credit card online, assuming it gets approved, how can I purchase something before my card arrives? I currently have a hero debit transaction account as it is and a card to go with it. Upon approval of a credit card, am I able to somehow link my credit account to that card or no? I need to make a very important purchase tomorrow and I hope I can find a way.

Hi @SarahBear29, to make purchases on the card you would need to receive and activate it first. While you can certainly add your transaction account to your new credit card (as a cheque or savings option), you won't be able to use the credit card until you receive it.
