Before activating your card you’ll need to have received it in the mail, which the company says takes about 3 business days.
After you receive your new card there are 2 activation methods available (online or over the phone) both of which are extremely simple.

How to Activate Your Surge Credit Card?
You can activate your card by visiting the webpage found on the sticker on the front of your new card or by calling the number found on the sticker. Online activation is our preferred method since it allows you to enroll in Continental’s online banking at the same time. This enrollment allows you to make payments, view all account activity, view current and previous account statements, see all payment history, check your available credit and credit card balance and much more!
All new cards must be activated within 30 days of receiving them in the mail and after 30 days if you haven’t activated your card you will have to call the company and request a new card.
