    It's normally about 5 - 7 working days for a new bank card to come through from most banks.

    did they send you a letter telling you to do so?
    i saw on a forum somewhere else that someone didnt get informed their card was at their local branch so they were just waiting around!

    No they did not tell me, best to ring up and check.

    Hi I applied for my student credit card 3 weeks ago and have still not received my card and I have had a text message from natwest reminding me to activate my card, should it have arrived already?

    Thanks
