The Bluebird Card is a type of pre-paid debit card created and made available from a partnership between major credit card brand American Express and US nationwide retailer Walmart.
How Does It Work?
New account holders can sign up for a Bluebird Card at their website, Bluebird.com, or at their local Walmart retailer as long as you are 18 years old, a United States citizen and resident, and do not currently have a Serve from an American Express prepaid digital account.
Customers can make direct deposits into their Bluebird account and then use their card to pay bills online, make purchases at stores, and withdraw money from MoneyPass ATMs and Money Center Express machines.
You can also use this card to manage your family's spending by setting up sub accounts underneath your card.
All sub account holders will receive their own card with their names on them, while you can set daily spending limits, turn ATM access on and off, and receive email alerts about sub account holder activity.
Cost & Price Plans
It's free to sign up for this card online, and only costs $5 at Walmart. Other than that, the Bluebird Card will charge a $2 fee for withdrawing money at non-participating ATMs, but states that there will never be any annual, monthly, or overdraft fees, nor is there a minimum balance required.
There is both an iPhone and Android app available to manage your card account from your mobile device.
Since the use of this card does not require any money or fees, this company does not have a published refund policy.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team with questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 877-486-5990.
While this card generally has positive reviews regarding the types of features it offers cardholders and its low fees, there does seem to be a consensus among their users that they have a lack of quality customer service and few ATM options.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are other prepaid card services available to users, such as Green Dot, if consumers are interested in alternatives.
