How to Activate your Barclaycard

Once you are approved for a Barclay Credit card you will need to activate the card either by phone or by their website.   The easiest way to activate the card is to use the Barclaycardus website.

The website provides various features including allowing you to pay your bill online as well as various promotions including spending bonuses.

We recently were approved for a 3 month bonus where all gas, groceries, and utility expenses earn 2X points.    **Promotions vary and are targeted so you may not receive the same offer at the same time.
