If you’ve been approved for a Canadian Tire credit card, then you can gain 24/7 access to your account balance with one simple activation. You’ll just need your credit card number and your 3-digit security code from Canadian Tire Bank to begin the activation process. After you verify your identity, you’ll be asked to create a PIN if one has not already been assigned.
Then click the grey “Continue” button after each step is completed. This will take you through the activation process.
When you’ve reached this page, then you will have successfully activated your credit card online.
At that point, you will be invited to create an online account so that you can manage your information, see your rewards, and other account-specific data. Just click on the “Enrol Now” button if you wish to create this profile.
You can also create your new online account through Canadian Tire Bank by following this link.
It takes about 5 minutes to complete the information and have your identity verified. For new credit card activations where an online account has already been created, you will be asked your security challenge question to complete the process.
Are There Other Ways to Activate My Canadian Tire Credit Card?
If you are having difficulties with the online activation process or may not have access to a computer, then you can contact Credit Card Customer Service to complete the activation process. Within North America, you will need to call 1 (800) 459-6415.
If you are calling from outside of North America, you will need to call (905) 735-7256 to complete the activation process.
Contact information will also be included with your welcoming packet when you receive your new Canadian Tire credit card. The information included may be account specific and differ from these general links and numbers, but will still help you to make sure your account is properly activated.
If neither method is working to help you be able to activate your card, then you can send a secured message from this page.
Fill in your personal and contact information, along with the comment you need to leave. A response will typically be received in 24-72 hours after you click on the “Submit” button.
If, for some reason, there are still issues with the activation process that cannot be resolved, Canadian Tire offers an online complaint resolution tool that can be accessed.
These steps will help you make sure that your Canadian Tire card activation goes through.
