Suntrust Card Activation Guide and Reviews
So you have made the decision to add a Suntrust card to your wallet.
Good for you! But now you must go through the bothersome part of activating it at suntrust.com/activatemycard.
Lucky for you the activation process is super simple and is over faster than a jackrabbit on a date (whatever that means).
Please be sure to have the card in question on hand during the activation process or you may find yourself having to call the Suntrust customer service department (and no one wants to do that).

Suntrust Card Bottom Line
The activation process with Suntrust credit cards is super easy. The only downfall is they don’t exactly offer the best credit cards on the planet.
Yes to the activation process… No to the credit card.
