Bluebird is a financial service offered by American Express and Walmart that allows you to pay bills online, make direct deposits, set up sub-accounts, and add checks using the Bluebird app directly from your mobile phone or tablet. Once you are logged in, you will have access to all the features and benefits of the Bluebird Account, including the ability to pay bills, transfer money, and track your financial activity. With Bluebird, you can make managing your finances easier and more convenient.
What I like about this service is that anyone can get in, since there are no credit reviews, your credit score really doesn’t matter. I also love the fact that it charges no fees to fund your account, so apart from helping you save time, you won’t have to deal with expensive monthly or annual fees, overdraft fees, bill pay fees, inactivity fees, card replacement fees, or even foreign exchange fees.
Another great feature that Bluebird offers is the SetAside Account, which is an account that what it basically does is help you save money for when you need it most, for special occasions such as family vacations, shopping, medical expenses, and more. A SetAside account allows you to easily move funds from your Bluebird account into your savings account, it helps you avoid unintentional spending, and you can also move funds back into your Bluebird account at any time, because the service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
What is the Bluebird Card?
Bluebird is a financial service offered by American Express and Walmart that allows you to pay bills online, make direct deposits, set up sub-accounts, and add checks using the Bluebird app directly from your mobile phone or tablet. The Bluebird card is a prepaid debit card that works as an alternative to a traditional bank checking account. One of the reasons we like the Bluebird card is that there are very minimum fees, compared to say the Walmart MoneyCard.
