I wish... I could get cash back at the register and that I could transfer from this account to an outside bank account like my money network card. Then blue bird would be perfect.... And all I need. I'm forced to have another card because of these 2 things.
The most recent update BROKE Sub > Main account transfers! One star is for the app, not for the Bluebird service. Bluebird is fantastic. You can almost do everything that you can do at a bank.
Screw banks! Amazing alternative!!! I love what bluebird has provided, iv been with over ten banks since 2007, and all have been crooks and a bad experience in one way or another. There's no hidden fees or anything like that, my only complaint is I get government treasury checks and have another account thru the company that does the snap pic add funds...and bluebird charges over double thru the same (ingo) company I have with my other account, so I use my other account to deposit and wire transfer over to bluebird for a far lesser fee.
DANGER AHEAD: I have an AMEX BlueBird account for more than 4 years and I was fairly satisfied, I don't have to drive to town banks anymore, I used their check cashing app for my payroll check, and bill pay since the beginning years ago; I have good credit, never bounced a check, always money in the account, all my info, etc. I updated and tried the new INGO check cashing system: it failed and it said it cannot verify the document I provided, and my account cannot be activated... funny, I did not provided any document yet, I just follow the instructions in the app and took picture of my payroll check as usual. Now I cannot cash my payroll check anymore, for no reason what so ever, it always worked before and no in app solution. So I called BB, but they have no idea and pointed to INGO, I called and informed them about the problem and asked how to resolve, but no reason/solution was offered. I request to escalate, but instead they read of a script which states a vague policy, no info and hangup. Beware BB joined a dubious company, which will cause you problems for no reason: After I found credit inquiries lowering my score by 6 points for each call to INGO CS... I'm back to CHASE.
Pair this with Walmart savings catcher We use this at least once a week. No fees. No hidden BS. Also, Paired with Walmart savings catcher... any refunds from them go straight on this card. My wife and I each have a card linked to the same account. In a pinch, I can throw $ on her card in a few swipes. I like.
