It’s not easy to find banks that give debit card the same day you open your account or that issue replacement same day debit cards if you’ve lost your card. However, a handful of traditional banks do offer instant-issue debit cards when you visit a branch.

Both traditional banks and neobanks commonly offer same-day virtual debit cards that you can add to a digital wallet and use immediately.  

What Should You Do if You Lose Your Debit Card?

If you’ve lost your debit card, it’s important to put a stop on your account and report that card as lost or stolen immediately. You can do this by calling your bank’s fraud prevention number, which is typically listed on the bank of your debit card or on the bank’s website, stopping into a branch or using your bank’s mobile app.

Report your debit card lost or stolen immediately, that way you won’t be held liable for charges on the account. Some banks allow you to turn your debit card off temporarily in their mobile app. That way, if you’ve misplaced your card, perhaps in the laundry, the pocket of your pants, or in another bag you carry, you can turn it on again when you find it. You can avoid the hassle of ordering another card.

But, if you can’t find your card and you need to request a new one, some banks provide same day debit cards.

Financial Institutions that Offer Instant Virtual Debit Cards

It’s more common to find financial institutions that offer instant virtual debit cards than physical cards. You can use your virtual account number to make purchases online. You can also add your virtual debit card to your virtual wallet, such as Google Pay or Apple Pay, to make purchases in stores that accept digital wallet payments through your phone.
