My Bluebird card arrived in the mail and I added money to my card. With my android phone I was able to download the Bluebird app and deposit my check easily. This will also work for those that have iPhones as there is an app for you guys as well. You just take a picture of your check with the app and it reads all the information and deposits the check. I’ve been wanting to deposit money to an account with my phone forever. It’s a good thing that I still have the Samsung GS III that Sprint is letting me borrow because you all know I usually use a Windows phone and well, there’s not an app for the Windows phone yet. Just in case you’re like I usually am, I’d like to tell you other ways you can easily add money, use your card or take cash out without accruing any fees.
Ways to Add Money to your Bluebird Account:
Direct Deposit at an ATM machine. You can withdraw or deposit money at any ATM that accepts American Express cards and in the network of more than 22,000 MoneyPass ATMs. Find a MoneyPass Network ATM near you. Bluebird members never pay surcharge fees at MoneyPass ATMs, including Money Center Express machines at Walmart (but a $2 Amex network fee will apply unless you have Direct Deposit)
From Checking to Savings account. You can easily transfer money from your checking account or savings account onto your bluebird account without any fees.
Cash from Walmart. Walmart allows you to add cash to your bluebird account at any register without any fees.
Cash Load Packs
Deposit Checks with Mobile App. You can make direct deposits, pay bills online, deposit checks with your iPhone® or Androidtm device, and set up Sub-Accounts — a great new way to manage family spending.
THERE ARE NO HIDDEN FEES
How to Spend Money Or Get Cash
The beauty of the bluebird account is that it is accepted anywhere American Express is accepted. Use your card like a credit card but understand that it has a limit. It’s your checking card. This is the answer to those of us that want a checking account but don’t want all those hidden fees. So many banks now require you to have a minimum amount of like a billion dollars in your account to skip out on the fees. Who has that much (yes I’m exaggerating a little bit but seriously the bank fees are out of control these days).
You have the ATM options that I listed above.
Transfer money to an account like I listed above.
How TO Become A Member
The first thing on the list was to sign up and create an account at Bluebird.com. You can do everything on-line or you can go into Walmart and buy a Bluebird card then register the account on-line. It was an easy process.
