myService Recognition Gift Card Activation

Congratulations on reaching a service milestone!  To use your Visa gift card, you need to "activate" your card and sign the back before you can use it. 

Activate Your Card

  • Activate your gift card by calling the vendor at 1-866-795-3890. 
  • NOTE: The gift card vendor will ask for the last four digits of your Social Security Number (SSN).  Give them the last four digits of your employee ID number.  The university DID NOT release your SSN.  You must use your employee ID number in place of your SSN to activate your card.
