Q: What is a digital card?
A: A digital card is a temporary solution you can request through the Bank of America Mobile Banking app while you're waiting for a new or replacement debit card to arrive in the mail. It can be used to make ATM transactions and purchases in stores or online. This digital version of your debit card has the same 16-digit number as your new plastic card, but a temporary CVV and expiration date.
Q: How can I request a digital card?
A: If you are ordering a replacement card in the Bank of America Mobile Banking app, you may be presented with the option to get the digital card after you place your order for a new plastic debit card. If you request a plastic debit card when you are opening an account online, you may be presented with the option to request a digital debit card in the Bank of America Mobile Banking app after your account has been opened.
Q: How do I use my digital card?
A: Tap the debit card image with the grey digital indicator on the Manage Card Settings page in the mobile app to reveal the card number, expiration date, and CVV. Enter these numbers at checkout when shopping online, or add your card to a Digital Wallet, and use it at any Bank of America ATM that accepts cardless transactions, as well as merchants that accept contactless digital payments.
Q: When will my digital card expire?
A: Your digital card expires when you activate the plastic card, or on the last day of the month following the one in which it was issued. If you've loaded your digital card into your Digital Wallet, the update is done for you automatically. You can view your expiration date by tapping on the debit card image with the grey digital indicator on the Manage Card Setting page in the Mobile app. Activate your plastic card as soon as it arrives because once your digital card expires, it is no longer available to use.
Q: Can I add a digital card to my digital wallets?
A: Yes. Simply click on the “add to wallet” button of your choice in the Mobile app. Your card information is updated automatically in your Digital Wallet when you activate your new plastic card.
