How Do You Activate a Verizon Reward Card?

Activate a Verizon Visa My Rewards+ card by visiting and entering the card number, expiration date and security code into the online form, as of 2015. If you receive a card that already has your name on it, you may not need to activate the card or it may come with different activation instructions.

Once you receive a Verizon Visa My Rewards+ gift card in the mail, check the enclosed letter for any custom activation instructions. Unless the documentation states otherwise, visit and locate the card registration section. Here, provide the 16-digit number that appears on the front of the card, its expiration date and the three-digit security code that appears on the back of the card. Complete the CAPTCHA verification process and submit the data to begin using the card.

The Verizon My Rewards+ system is a loyalty program for Verizon customers that awards points for completing actions that revolve around current subscriptions to its services, such as paying a bill through the Verizon website, renting digital movies through its Fios cable system or signing up for paperless billing statements. As you continue to accrue points, you have the option to redeem the points for merchant gift cards, which do not require any activation steps, or a reloadable Visa gift card, which contains funds you can use at any retailer that accepts Visa cards.
