Your new Northwest credit card is here.

In this increasingly virtual world, we're on a journey to transform beyond today’s digital options to create powerfully satisfying digital experiences. As a part of this journey, we've upgraded our personal and business credit cards with enhanced features, including contactless payments, improved alerts, controls and more.

Earlier this month you received your new Northwest credit card, which offers a number of new features and benefits. The terms and conditions of your current card will stay the same, including the APR and credit limit.

 

Below are the steps you'll need to take to activate and use your card and manage your account.

Activate your new card now!


Activate it now by following the instructions on the card sticker and start taking advantage of everything it offers, including improved alerts, controls and contactless design.

We deactivated your old Northwest credit card- please securely destroy it by cutting it up before throwing it away.

Didn't receive your card? Call 1-877-672-5678, weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

If you have more than one Northwest Credit Card, we mailed you letters that show which card replaces which.

If you have more than one card for the same account, each card will now have a different card number.

Please note that in line with industry security best practices, you’ll find your name, card number, expiration date and CVV code on the back of your new card, as shown in the example below:

Update the way you make automatic payments.

Have automatic payments taken from your current card from billers like utilities, service providers or online shopping sites? Provide them with your new card information, including card number, expiration date and CVV code right away.

Change the way you pay your credit card bill.

With this new card, your credit card bill will look a little different, and you might see a slight change in your due date.

To ensure your Northwest credit card payments are made on time, please be sure to note the following—

• If you have an automatic transfer that was not set up through online bill pay, there’s nothing you need to do—your payments will continue automatically on the day your credit card payment is due. This might be a change if you set up your automatic payment to be made on a day that's different than the due date.

• If you make payments using online bill pay through Northwest or another financial institution, update bill pay to reflect your new card and, if required, the mailing address below.

• If you mail payments, you'll send them to this new address, which will be listed on your statement-
Northwest Bank
PO Box 2711
Omaha, NE 68103-2711

If you’re not sure whether you’re making payments through Bill Pay or automatic transfer, please call 1-877-300-5768, weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
