- To create an online account, you will need to input your credit card number on the site, plus the 4 digit card ID. If you do not have the card ID because you have a corporate purchasing account, an Optima line of credit, or an Optima consolidator account, you will need to input your billing address with your zip code and the credit card number.
- You will then be asked to set up your account preferences, including security questions and alerts. You can choose whether to receive alerts on your phone or to your email, as well as how you want to receive your credit card statements and bills. You will also see all the card benefits that you qualify for.
- If you already have an account but do not remember your username and your password, you can still gain access to your information. For a lost user ID and password, input your card’s number and the 4 digit card ID. If you have a cancelled card, you can still get your user ID by entering your zip code and your billing address. You will then have the chance of retrieving your ID and resetting your password.
