Bluebird Customer Service, though friendly enough, is completely unable to help you, making the 24/7 Customer Service line utterly pointless. If you have a problem and just want to listen to nice people tell you they can't help you, give them a call. If you actually want help, get another card.

I like the no fee card and the idea. We use them at work as tool to track and separate our expenses when traveling. I've been using mine for several months but I load cash directly onto the card at Walmart. I've had no issues with its use.. My deposits have always been immediately available. Things I have learned--- 1. You cannot register two cards using the same social- If you want additional cards you must use the "sub accounts". When I called and asked why my registration would not go through.. they matter-of- factly said that I would have to use another social Security number. As if it was an option. 2. Phone Support is the worst! I expected better from American Express and remain shocked at how bad the customer service phone support is. I've had several attempts and dealings with them... No one with any knowledge is ever available. It is obviously outsourced to India. I expect a serious hit to the reputation of American Express over this BlueBird customer service issue if they don't act fast to correct this.

The customer service is absolutely the worst. I called five times and was hung up on all five. They also do not do any advertising that they put a limit to how much of your money you can withdrawl in a month. They just say they are sorry there is nothing they can do. In some states this card is not accepted at most locations so now they have the money and you do not have access. I would not advise getting this card if you are looking for prepaid.

everyone get the rush card, had it for years never any problems. I just wanted this card to pay my daughter's bills but what a joke! I am going to do everything in my power to shut these people down Walmart you ought to be a shame of yourselves for endorsing this scam. this is how the rich keep getting richer by sucking the blood out of the rest of us. This is ridiculous! I have never heard of a prepaid card that allows you to go negative, total bullshit...the reason I have a prepaid card is to avoid all of that otherwise I could just open an account at the bank I work at...

I tried to deposit my paycheck to Bluebird. Didn't accept. I cashed my paycheck elsewhere (and paid the fee), then tried to deposit the cash in Bluebird. Only accepted $1000. Tried to make a money order out of the Bluebird card. Did not allow me, because it's a credit card (credit? with my own money?). I tried then to withdraw my money. Only allowed $500, including the fee. So I had to ask for $496 and wait until the next day. Customer service at two Walmart stores did not know anything about these limitations. I tried to call the Bluebird customer service, had to wait infinitely. Typed my card number on the phone, then the customer support asked me for the number again - they didn't receive my input. The whole experience was horrible. I'm deeply disappointed with Walmart. Will close this account A.S.A.P.

Been trying to link my debit card and bank account for my out of town college daughter and add funds. I keep getting "Not activated", called and am given another number. Been at this 2 hours. This is going in the trash. There is a $100 a day limit on adding funds. That is not good for college kids. This is trash!

Does anyone know if you can deposit a personal check to your bluebird card? It just says check so I wasn't sure if that meant payroll check only or a personal check that someone wrote out to me.

awful. bought for 17 year old. Wrapping did not disclose the 18yr old age requirement. Now sub-account locked out because we tried to set her email up as the Primary user. Been disconnected from helpdesk twice. 6-7 business days for checks to clear. Stay far, far away until they get their act together.

DO NOT get one of these cards. I have tried to load money onto the card at walmart 5 different times and every time, their "system is down". I finally did a transfer of funds from my bank account. (I am trying to pay ONE bill with this card - its the only reason I got it - and I am going on just over three weeks of trying!) After waiting three days, I called their joke of a "customer service" number to see why the fund were still pending. I talked to two people who only repeated over and over that the funds wouldn't be on the card for another five days. I could not believe it would take so long, so I tried to cancel the transaction, but they wouldn't do it. They said I would have to wait until the funds show up on my card before they can send the money back (taking another 5 days in the process). So now I'm stuck in limbo hoping like hell that the funds post before this stupid bill of mine goes into collections. SOOOO, long story short, DO NOT GET ONE OF THESE CARDS! They are worse than most of the other prepaid cards. I have never had one take so long to post a payment! I had a paypower card for over a year, and have use paypal, and the visa prepaid cards. ALL of those other cards have your funds loaded within 24hours! I am willing to pay a 3 dollar fee for the convenience of NOT HAVING TO WAIT A WEEK AND A HALF FOR MY FUNDS TO TRANSFER ONTO THIS CARD! I will NEVER use this card again.

I love the Bluebird card! There are no (NONE) fees, customer service is friendly and you can have your paycheck directly deposited quickly and easily. If you use a money pass atm you won't even have to pay atm fees, and that is pretty great! I bought my card kit at walmart but you can also get it free online. If you get the starter kit you have a paper starter card and wait 7 days for the "real" one in the mail. This is seriously the best card for anyone with not so great credit! The website is also pretty nice, it's simple to navigate.
