In many cases, you have 45 to 60 days to activate a new credit card. Some lenders will reach out if you don’t activate your card during the activation period to confirm you received it but that’s not a guarantee. The clock starts ticking the day you’re approved, since that’s the day your account opens.

How long does it take for credit card to activate?
