How to Get Your Temporary Torrid Credit Card Number



If you’ve recently applied and been approved for a Torrid credit card in-store, you received a temporary card number printed on your receipt. This allows you to enjoy your new Torrid card benefits right away, before your physical card arrives in 7-10 business days.

The temporary card number can be used for purchases only at Torrid stores. Here’s what you need to know about finding and using your temporary Torrid credit information.

Receiving a Temporary Card In-Store

When you apply and instantly get approved for a Torrid credit card at a retail location, the cashier will provide a receipt displaying your new temporary card details. This includes:

  • 16-digit Temporary Card Number
  • Expiration Date (MM/YY format)
  • 3-digit CVV Security Code

This temporary number acts as your Torrid card for making purchases at Torrid until your permanent plastic card is received in the mail.

Checking Your Receipt for Temporary Card Details

Your temporary Torrid card information will be printed on the receipt after approval. Here’s where to find each piece of info:

  • Card Number: Listed under “Temporary Card Number”. This 16-digit number works like your permanent card number.
  • Expiration Date: Printed under “Expiration Date” as MM/YY (e.g. 06/25).

Review your receipt closely – all temporary card details are labeled. Take a photo or make a copy for reference.
