I opened my account and used my debit card to load $25 and the $25 credit went in almost instantly.

I WAS AN IDIOT AND FUNDED ACCT WITH CREDIT CARD - DO NOT FUND WITH CC- CASH ADVANCE CHARGE WILL KILL THIS FOR YOU

1Offer expires September 30, 2012 and is not available to existing Serve account holders or any person that has previously canceled his or her Serve account. To receive the $25 from Serve, you must open a new Serve account (subject to approval) and add $25 or more, which must post to your new Serve account on or before September 30, 2012. In some instances, it may take several days for added funds to post to your account, so please allow sufficient time for that process to occur. Serve will provide a one-time credit to your Serve account of $25 within thirty (30) days of you satisfying the above requirements. Funds loaded via person-to-person send/receive money transactions will not satisfy the account funding requirements. Limit one (1) $25 credit per new Serve account. Subaccounts are not eligible for the credit. Offer subject to change or cancellation at any time and cannot be combined with any other offer(s).

Have to give last 4 digits of SSN
--> Comment: For those of you who are freaking out about giving out your social, American Express's standard policy for all accounts (from SERVE accounts to Prepaid cards to Credit Cards) is to require SSN for first-time customers. If you are an existing American Express account holder (with any of their products which already has your SSN on file), then you do not need to provide all the verification details again. Keep in mind, however, you WILL need to verify your identity if you have never been an American Express customer. This is their company policy.

- A Verizon account is NOT necessary... Fund using your debit card to get the bonus $25 instantly... Then you can withdraw the $50 to your bank account...

- Adding funds from a bank account can take a few days (plus a few days to verify the bank account itself if you don't opt for an instant verification). If you'd like your promo to be reflected on your account as soon as possible, then use a debit card instead.

- Serve is waiving load fees for credit cards until 2013, however, your financial institution's cash advance fees may (and most probably will) apply.

Make sure you go to My Account __> Settings __> Privacy to opt out of marketing and the sharing of your information!!


-Code is VZBTS25

Entire process can take as little as 5 days to complete, to see an example WITH SCREENSHOTS, please see this post: http://slickdeals.net/f/5001774-25-credit-when-you-open-a-Serve-Account-and-add-25?v=1&p=52342194#post52342194

What is the promotion? How does it work?
Sign up for a Serve® account (subject to approval) and when you load $25 or more via a checking account, savings account, debit card, credit card or MoneyPak® on or before September 30, 2012, Serve will provide a one-time $25 credit to your Serve account. You must sign up through serve.com/vzbts25 to receive the offer.

How long is the offer valid?
Once you sign up for a Serve account (subject to approval), you have through September 30, 2012 to complete a qualifying load from your funding source.

What funding source can I use to fund my account in order to qualify for the offer?
You can fund via checking account, savings account, debit card, credit card (MasterCard®, Visa®, or American Express® Cards) (cash advance fees may apply for credit card loads; please check with your credit card issuer for details) or add cash with a MoneyPak® (MoneyPak purchase fees may apply). Serve does not currently charge fees for adding money; please see the Schedule of Fees in the Serve Consumer User Agreement for details.

If I load my account by requesting funds from a friend, will I still qualify for the offer?
Only amounts loaded via checking account, savings account, debit card, credit card (MasterCard®, Visa®, or American Express® Cards) or MoneyPak® will satisfy the $25 funding requirement.

Once I load my account, how long will it take to credit my account?

Serve will credit your new Serve account $25 within thirty (30) days after you fund the account with $25 or more.

How will I know when the credit has been applied to my account?
The credit will appear in your Serve account.

Can I load several times to meet the load level?
No, you must meet or exceed the one-time load amount $25 or more to receive the offer.

If I establish subaccounts and fund those subaccounts with $25 or more, will Serve credit each subaccount $25?
No, unfortunately the $25 credit is a one-time credit that will only be deposited in the primary Serve account provided the qualifications are met.

I am a subaccount holder, can I receive the offer?
Unfortunately as a subaccount holder, you are not eligible for this offer.

The offer applies only to new Serve customers that sign up through the offer. Neither current nor former Serve account holders may receive the offer.

I signed up for an account, but I haven't received my verification email. What do I do?
The Serve account verification email should arrive in your email inbox within 30 minutes of registration. If it has not arrived, the first step is to check your spam folder or junk mail. The email is valid for seven days. If you still have not received the verification, you can log into your Serve account and request a new email verification by clicking on "Resend Email" on your Serve account dashboard. Still having trouble? Call Serve customer service at 1-800-954-0559.

When will I get my new Serve card in the mail so I can activate it?

Can I make a purchase with my Serve card if I don't have enough available funds in my account to complete my purchase?
If you have a credit card or debit card linked to your Serve account, the card you have set as your backup funding source will be charged or debited for the remaining balance of your purchase. Please note that cash advance fees may apply for credit card loads; please check with your credit card issuer for details.

Well if it does, here's an alternative link that doesn't expire until the end of the year.

I do aplogize for the tardy response. I, too, tried to add the American Express Campus Edition Card to my account and it was denied as well.

Perhaps you can use the card at a POS in a grocery store such as Food 4 Less, to receive cash back.

Tried two $30 AMEX prepaid rebate reward cards issued by TigerDirect and both got declined. Must use them at Safeway gas station now.

does anybody have any experience with serve locking your account with funds still on the account? i signed up with serve using this promotion and funded the account with an american express prepaid gift card. received the bonus and was left with a balance of $175 on the account. however they claimed that i used a credit card not registered to me even though those AMEX prepaid gift cards were purchased by my brother and registered to me. i tried to withdraw the money to my bank account but Serve cancelled the transfer and kept the funds in the account and locked it. Serve won't refund the money to my AMEX prepaid gift cards and AMEX prepaid gift card services can't do a charge back because they claim that it is not a credit card service and those AMEX prepaid gift cards should be treated like cash. i filed a claim with BBB but no one is really doing anything about it.

any advice or help to get this resolved would be greatly appreciated.

I just started an account, added my debit card. It now shows 50.00 after I added 25.00 to my account.

Can I now withdraw whatever I like of my 50.00 balance without penalty or fee?

I now see I have to verify my bank account first to withdraw from my balance. It says that will take 2-3 days so I will see how it goes in a few days.

I just started an account, added my debit card + 25.00 to my account and after 5 minutes I got $25. Then I verified my bank account (asked me user name/password for faster processing), took less than a minute and I was able to withdraw my $50 ;-). Now I just have to wait 2 days to see it on my bank account.

Just received an email from serve, stating that they have locked my account for my protection until I can verify my Social Security Number. I have been a customer for about 4 months and have a high balance on the account, which gives me great pause about using their services again. I am unable to contact them as their offices have closed for the weekend. Rest assured that I will be calling the verification's department the first thing on Monday morning.

As a warning to other SDer's out there contemplating on using this service as an emergency fund, I suggest searching elsewhere for that particular service as they have shown their true colors as a business.

Will give an update on Monday afternoon.

Aanairai.
