Current Visa balances will not be updated until the conversion is complete. We expect completion on or around Wednesday, May 25th.
Other important facts about your new credit card:
- Your new card has a new expiration date and a new number.
- You will need to provide your new card number to any automatic billers you have set up. This includes automatic debits or payments such as subscriptions, monthly bills, or recurring charges.
- Your new card will also have a new payment address, which will be included in the mailing with your new credit card.
- If you use a bill pay service to pay your credit card, you will need to update that information as well once you have activated the new card.
- The link to view your credit card account will change once the new card is activated. Instead of EZCardInfo, the new website is GoToMyCard.com, where you will be asked to register the card and create a new account upon first login.
