Bank of scotland ONE joint card

Options
Have just applied for and received a joint card for my wife (BOS ONE Mastercard).

However when I received my own card( I am the account holder) there was a sticker on it saying I had to call to activate the card, this card in my wifes name on the joint account does not have any such sticker on it.

Question is, should I need to activate it before use?

    Nope, its valid as it is an extention of your card. It is not a joint account.

    It is ready to use.

    Credit Cards do not come in joint names, you are main a/c holder and the wife is additional cardholder. You share the limit etc....
