How do I activate my current account debit card?

  1. Log into Internet Banking
  2. Click on the 'Cards' tab and you'll be provided with a six digit access code
  3. Send a text message to 57887 with the following message: 'TRIODOS PINACT', followed by your access code, followed by the last four digits of your card number - you need a space between sets of numbers. For example: TRIODOS PINACT 123456 1234
  4. You'll be sent your card PIN via text message within a couple of minutes - don't forget to delete that text message after memorising your PIN
  5. You're ready to use your card - remember to sign the back
