I have enter the security code on the back of the card and it indicates it is incorrect. I am positive I have entered the correct 3 digit code.

i biing on this website all day to activate

Apr 11, 2009 14:36

I tried calling and the website to activate. I know it is only $5.00 but I think Discover and General Mills need to do as they are promoting.

Hi Perri,

Maybe you are trying to activate the card on the wrong website.

Try this link :

I am unable to activate my discover card. I tried the address in the answers on this page and the address was not available. I have spent quite a bit on time for this $5 and do not appreciate this set up. I would assume most would give up at some point, which may be your intent. It does not leave a good feeling about General Mills.

I went to the website you suggested and did not have any trouble activating at all! Thanks!

Apr 15, 2009 9:04

this is a joke.

Apr 15, 2009 13:22

After supposedly activating card, tried to use it at Target. Card not valid. Who has so much time on their hands to spend redeeming a $5 card? Many of us, it seems.

Apr 18, 2009 7:04

Went into activate card, put the card numbers on then it wanted a code from the box, I tore the box apart trying to find it, also looked in the foil it was wrapped in. Where is it? It would seem to me if the numbers off the card are correct, it should go threw, after all I don’t think even a genius could figure out that many numbers to fraud the company for $5.00.

I went to all three websites I was directed to. They all look the same. I cannot find out how to activate this card. My son really wants to use it. He’s all excited about using his own card at the toy store. We would call but it’s the weekend.

This is a joke, went to the web site,them I went to the other one like everyone else and it is the same thing as the first one. As a long time discover member I will take this up with them. I am sure they will be very happy to know you are dragging them into this scam.

I went to the website and logged in un der my sons birthday, it told me wrong card #. I went back and logged in with my birthday and it worked! I think it has to be someone 18 and up since its money.

Its only $5.00 but I’m on a fixed income and could use that money!! How do I get it?

Once on the site, you’ll have to click on the ACTIVATE CARD button and follow the instructions.
Once you entered your date of birth, you’ll find a form where you’ll have to enter your name, email, card number and security number.

The information I write here are the ones I have found in the official rules.
I’m not in contact with anybody at GeneralMills so I’m doing my best to find the information that could help you all. I can’t say if it works because I don’t have any of these cards but it appears to be the way to activate your cards.
