Searching for activation number for debit card.

I have a debit card from my credit union. I tore the activation sticker off of it before calling the number. Any way I can find the number somehow?

There should be a general bank service number on the card. Call them and ask?

You may have to wait until Monday. At the bank I work with, our weekend phones are only staffed by the company that closes lost or stolen cards. Tthey may have the number for you to call, but I wouldn't be certain.

What credit union?

my bank let me activate my card by using it for any pin-authenticated transaction (i.e. a balance inquiry works) at any one of their ATMs - maybe you could try that?

Is there a number on the back of the card? Have you tried to ask the credit union? Broadly, what have you tried already?

With my bank, I can activate the card by calling the regular customer service number printed on the card.

I would 2nd using it in an ATM, and also I'm sure if you call the regular credit union number and tell them you need to activate a card they'll either do it or transfer you to whoever they need to.

Why would you not just call your credit union and ask? Seems weird to come to Ask Metafilter to ask this one.
