What you need to do to get a new Bank of America debit card is to fill out the application form. It is really that easy! There are many types of cards you can choose from, so you may want to narrow it down a bit.
Once you have decided on which one you want, go online and find out which kind of credit card would work best for you. If you are trying to make sure you do not get ripped off, then you may want to compare the rates and fees that come along with each type of card.
Once you have found a card that you would like, you need to apply for a Bank of America debit card in person. Head to your local branch. Go to the new account department. Tell them that you lost your existing card or debit machine. They will then ask you for identification.
Next they will give you a temporary card which is valid for only 30 days. You will then be asked for the PIN which is either six numbers or twelve letters. The process will require you to input the correct PIN into the reader, so be sure to know what it is before you start. Keep your fingers out of your eyes. After entering it, the card reader will automatically scan your number and print it on the screen. You should also get a receipt for your purchase.
You should then be able to go online to the Bank of America website to apply for a new debit card with a new address. You will be required to provide a few items such as: name, address, social security number and birth date. Once they verify your information, your card will be mailed to you. You will need to take the card out at the counter, before you get your debit card and insert it into your card reader. You must then insert the pin, you were instructed to before the card reader will accept any kind of transaction.
In about 30 seconds, your new card will be mailed to you. If you have been approved, you can begin using your new card. It may take a few days for your new card to show up on your statement, but it should be there within a few weeks. If not, call your bank to find out what happened and see if you can get another debit card mailed to you immediately.
