The Providian credit card used to be distributed by the Providian Financial Corporation. However Providian was sold to Washington Mutual (WAMU) in the year 2005. Another transition took place in 2008 when Washington Mutual was acquired by JPMorgan Chase. Providian credit cards are still in circulation and in use. However when you choose to make a Providian credit card payment through the online system you must visit the “Chase Online” services. In this case you will receive all of the benefits and conveniences that come with dealing with Chase in the virtual manner.
If you decide to enroll to use the online service then you will not regret that you did. To start go to the “Chase Online” page found here- http://www.chase.com/welcomewamu1/. Once here click on the section that is labeled “Sign up.” It should be in a region that says “Access Chase Online.” This will take you to the place you need to be. Now you will need to type in your identification information. This includes your social security number as well as your Providian credit card number.
The next step for you is to choose the button marked “My Personal Accounts.” Click on “Next” and then follow the instructions required to create a user ID and a password.
