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

Promotion FAQs

What is the promotion? How does it work?

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(R), Visa(R), or American Express(R) 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(R) (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(R), Visa(R), or American Express(R) Cards) or MoneyPak(R) 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.

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.

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.

Anyone had problems linking their debit card?

Signed up for the acct. np but had to use my bank acct. My debit card kept sending back an error "Trying to link credit as debit" and when I finally gave up and tried to link it as a credit card I get "unable to process, try again later".

Hopefully, once the acct. is verified i'll be able to add the $25 and see the bonus credit.

Hmmm... If you are not an AMEX customer and get the 25 dollars, then I don't understand why they request SS from me. Or were you once an AMEX customer, even if it meant you were a supplementary card holder?

I am actually not "surprised" that they see nothing on my credit report (and hence the request) since I don't apply for credits at all, never. I don't think my AMEX's request is random.
Never had an Amex card in any fashion - not as a primary, not as a supplementary. They aren't asking for your SSN to run your credit history, I believe it's solely for ID verification.

for some reason my debit card wouldn't go through so I had to use my checking acct....now the transaction is "pending"...does that mean I have to wait for the additional $25?

EDIT: NM...read the wiki...funds must be confirmed, thus pending will not work...yet.

I used withdrawal to my bank account almost immediately after loading the initial $25 and receiving the free $25 deposit. There was no charge and the money should be withdrawn to my bank account within 5 days.

I tried to tell some people about this deal and they complained about how annoying it was to setup the account for an easy 25 dollars..Isn't it sad how lazy and pathetic some people are? Long live slickdeals!

I agree with you. However, I don't understand how they "pick" customer to verify their ID's. Random? I know there are people who didn't get this request and they also did not provide any SSN info when they were filling out the application.

You can withdraw via bank. Takes 3 to 5 days for the transfer. There's no fee. I can confirm I've done this before a couple times with my SERVE account without a problem. Just make sure to link a correct bank account.

SERVE has virtually all of the features that Paypal has from a regular consumer standpoint, including money transfer.
