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.

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?

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.

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.

Can I make a purchase with my Serve card if I don't have enough available funds in my account to complete my purchase?

They said they will take any card that I had added but most of them I have thrown away already since they were prepaid rebate cards, I'm still trying to find one that I might have kept.
my account was locked also and they sent me an email to fax a copy of debit cards. I tried to call their hotline because I don't have the cards but I was unable to reach the account verification hotline due to long wait time. I called the regular serve hotline and complained about the suspension of my account and how difficult it is to contact their account verification hotline but the agent offered no other solution but to fax the required docs. I hung-up and never called again, after a week they sent me an email that they reopen my account Smilie

Does anyone know know if you can use the serve card like a debit card and get back cash with a purchase? Say buy something from target for $5 then get $100 cash back?

If so, what would be the steps?
Just as if you made the purchase with a debit card.

I ask because it seems others have tried and its failed? Also I've never used a debit card, I only use credit cards.

Quote from mastergogo :
I got the $25 bonus offer. However I have a question.
I tried using Serve Card at local Walgreens, as a debit card and entered the PIN, and selected cashback to withdraw funds in the same transaction. But after doing that, the entire transaction got declined. Did anyone face similar issues with using Serve Card as a Debit Type?


Quote from tommygun8 View Post :
OP you need to subtract the exact amount of purchase from the total in your account balance and enter it on cash back amount. Works the same way with the Visa and Mastercard gift cards. shake head

I faxed them a copy of a debit card and they replied with an email thanking me for opening a Serve account (I've had an account for over a year) and requesting a copy of my social security card. This is just getting ridiculous at this point.

Call this number to speak to someone in Account Protection Services 18005554318 to ask what is really needed as they mistakenly locked my account for ssn verification only to find out that they needed my debit card information.... Please keep us updated.

Hope this helps,

Did they make you provide your social security card at any point?

I have a serve account, but I did not receive the email, if I load $25, will I still be able to get the bonus $25?

Also, does all Credit card charge cash advance for this type of loading?

thanks

It depends on how the merchant, in this case Serve, is processing the transaction when they send it over to your credit card company. If they are sending it over coded as cash then your credit card company will process it as a cash advance.

What I do is set all my credit cards cash limits to 0. There should be a separate cash limit from your purchase & balance transfer limits. That way if any merchant tries to process any transaction as cash it will get denied.

Serve no longer accepts other prepaid card as a funding source. An update in their system has prevented users from doing so.

Hope this helps,
