A Purchasing Card typically expires after three years at the end of the expiring month listed on the card. The Cardholder will receive a new card the month preceding the expiration date of the old card. Cards are mailed around the 15th of the month from JPMorgan. Reissued cards will be sent to the Cardholder's address as it appears on your Memo Statement. You will need to shred your old card when you receive your new card. Reissued cards need to be activated. Call the # on the sticker and remember to provide your Baylor ID #.
If you have an online account with Staples, you will need to update your expiration date on your account by following the instructions below:
**SPECIAL NOTE: The old card will remain active until the last day of the expiration month or until the new card is used for the first time.
We are pleased to announce that beginning September, 2015, reissued cards will convert to chip cards. The cardholder’s new chip card will contain a small embedded microchip which will help improve the security and acceptance of the card in the U.S. and around the world. The card allows purchases at merchants with chip-enabled terminals, as well as merchants with traditional terminals. Depending on how the merchant is set up, cardholders will be prompted to either sign a receipt or enter a four-digit PIN to complete the transaction.
The cardholder will be responsible for reading the materials enclosed with the card that review card benefits and usage. It is important to become familiar with how the card will work, as it will likely vary from other chip cards. Call the number on the activation label right away to activate the card and set your PIN.
