So you just received a shiny new prepaid DEEPBLUE card in the mail. Awesome! 💳 This handy little card gives you the flexibility to shop online or in stores anywhere Debit MasterCard is accepted.
But before you can start swiping, you need to activate your card.
Activating your card is super quick and easy. Just follow this simple guide to get up and running with your DEEPBLUE card today!
Why You Got This Fancy Card
First question you probably have is — why did I get this DEEPBLUE card and account in the first place?
DEEPBLUE is a prepaid debit card and account issued by Republic Bank & Trust Company (Member FDIC). It works similar to a regular bank account, with some nice extra perks:
- No minimum balance or credit check requirements
- FDIC insured
- Use it to receive direct deposits like paychecks or tax returns
- Send and receive money instantly
- Reload at Netspend locations
- Free checking account and debit card
So it gives you the functionality of a bank account without all the hassle. Pretty cool!
Activate Within 30 Days!
Here’s an important tip:
You need to activate your new card within 30 days of receiving it in the mail.
If more than 30 days go by without activating, unfortunately your account will close and any funds will get returned to the sender. No good!
So let’s get this card up and running pronto. You’ve got two easy options to activate your DEEPBLUE card:
