Thread Details

Don't know if it qualifies as a hot deal or how much it's close to Amex charge or serve cards

Saw about this on CNN video
http://money.cnn.com/2012/10/08/p...index.html

For me the deal would be to have one or couple as a virtually virtual card if they won't request SS# of course

If they're trying to market as free checking replacement, there is plenty of free checking and I recommend credit unions

you can get bluebird setup for free online. Buy a vanilla reload at office depot using a card like chase ink to earn 5x points and then pay off whatever bills you want with the bluebird card, you can even pay off the credit card you used to buy the vanilla reload card.

$500 + 3.95 load fee = 25.1975 in chase ink rewards
then load then vanilla on the bluebird and pay off the chase ink credit card

This method is bound to get blown up since it went up on Boarding Area and the bloggers have been posting about it.

Seems like the daily limit is $1000, monthly is $5000.

So, that's hypothetically $60,000/year x 5X points = 300,000 Chase UR points (and whatever extra bonus you get at end of year). You'd just use the bill pay option to pay off your credit card. Your only real expense would be paying load fees, and in this case its clearly worth it.

Even though it's getting blown up everywhere else, let's not add to it. The product has barely been out for a month!

Bluebird cs is not good. I have been on the phone with them twice today and still don't have my problem solved. Does anyone know how to find a list of the bill payees on the BB site? I have looked everywhere. I have been adding them manually, I know the credit card companies are listed because the payment arrives the next day. Where do they have them hidden?
