How to Find Credit Card Expiration Dates

Credit cards generally have expiration dates, which are easy to find just by looking at the front of the card. The expiration date exists for numerous reasons, the most important of which is to protect against fraud.

Front of Card

Expiration dates are always displayed on the front of the card and most often can be found in the lower right hand corner under the account number. The date is usually shown as a four-digit number, which represents the month and year of expiration. For example, ''08/19'' indicates that the card expires in August 2019.

Wear and Tear

With repeated use, the numbers on the front of the card can become worn and difficult to read. In this case, or if you do not have the card handy, you can check your online account or call customer service to find the expiration date.
