Hey pit today i tried to use an atm for the first time. I only had a credit card, no bank card or atm card. It asked me for a PIN number, where do I get this? Do I need to like register beforehand to be able to use the ATM?

EDIT: to everyone saying I stole my card it is mine but my parents got it to me for college and they have all the paperwork and I never bothered to look for my PIN cuz i just assumed i would be using it to buy stuff and not on an ATM

If it's a creditcard the pinc code is in the papers you get with it. And you dont have to register anywhere to use it with an atm specifically, but there might be some activation thing you have to do with the card.

I got mine at the bank so they did everything for me

totaly wrong


you should get your pin along with your card in the post if you didnt you have been ****ed over check if it was tamperd with

once you get it when you get to a atm you have 30 days i think it is to activate your pin by putting into a atm and typing your pin out once you have done that it will be active and you can use it in shops and atms all over.

Just start hitting numbers till the atm makes it rain.

At least for me, when you register for the card you chose your pin. I'm sure you can contact the bank to find out.

As far as I know you can't even use a credit card at an atm, unless they've added some new thing where you withdraw cash and it bills you. I suspect a thief or a troll.

Um...thdurr that's what you use at an ATM.
Bank card at a bank.
Credit card at a credit.
ATM card at an ATM.
Starbucks card at Starbucks.

Heh. Imagine using a Starbucks card at an ATM.

You can get a cash advance with your credit card using an atm, but you'll probably get a high interest rate that hovers around 20%. So just make sure you pay that on time. On purchases you'll probably have a regular finance charge of about half that, unless you've signed up and received a special introductory rate. Most credit cards will jack up that introductory rate as soon as you miss a payment.

edit: At least that's how it works for me. I have both a debit and credit card.

You're thinking of a Debit Card, not a Credit Card.

i think you can use a credit card for a atm you can still withdraw money from it its just not yours you still owe the bank it so i say **** you pit and you can use a credit card in a atm also how else are you gna manage your card and account will be a pain to go the bank all the time

but tbh you dont really need to use a credit card in a atm you can just use it in person at shops tbh you should have gone debit

Credit cards CAN be used at an ATM if you register a pin when you get it
there's usually a $5 or so fee to withdraw money on a credit card from an ATM
