Thread Details

Just got an email from Serve by American Express.

If you make 2 direct deposits of $250 or more, they will give you a $50 bonus.

So essentially its $50 for depositing $500.

Login to your serve account https://www.serve.com to setup direct deposit. Then set it up with your employer for $250+ out of each paycheck.

Email:


"Now is a great time to enroll in Direct Deposit!

We'll give you a $50 account credit after your second Direct Deposit of $250 or more to your American Express® Serve Account, when received by September 30, 2013.1 With Direct Deposit and your Serve® Card, enjoy fast and easy access to your pay."

FLEXIBILITY: Deposit all or part of your paycheck, no minimum balance required.

ACCESS: If you are enrolled in Direct Deposit (and you have received a Direct Deposit payment within the prior 30 days), ATM withdrawals at more than 22,000 MoneyPass® ATMs using your American Express® Serve Card are FREE.2

CONVENIENCE: Shop with your Serve Account online or in stores and you can help protect eligible purchases against accidental damage or theft for up to 90 days from the date of purchase with Purchase Protection.3



Does anyone know other simple ways to direct deposit without going through an employer? Would it be possible to withdraw paypal money to serve and count that as DD?

Unsubscribe Instructions: If you do not want to receive emails of this kind from Serve, please click here.

1To receive the $50 credit from Serve, you must: (i) activate your Serve Card, (ii) successfully enroll in Direct Deposit that your employer participates in and (iii) receive a minimum of two qualifying Direct Deposit transfers of $250 or more to your Serve Account, the second of which must post on or before September 30 2013. A qualifying Direct Deposit is defined as a recurring Direct Deposit of a paycheck or other regular monthly income electronically deposited by an employer into your Serve Account. Transfers and loads from any other funding source (including P2P, credit or debit card, cash, bank account) do not qualify as load transactions to receive a credit. Funds transferred via Direct Deposit generally post on the day Serve receives the transfer from your employer. However, in some instances it may take several days for Serve to receive your employer's transfer, so please allow sufficient time for that process to occur. Statement credit will be posted to your Serve Account within thirty (30) days of your satisfying the above requirements. Limit one (1) $50 credit per Serve Account. Subaccount holders are not eligible to earn a credit. Offer subject to change or cancellation at any time and cannot be combined with any other offer(s).

2Serve charges a $2 ATM withdrawal fee unless the Accountholder meets the following criteria: (i) the Accountholder is enrolled in Direct Deposit and has received a Direct Deposit payment within the prior 30 days and (ii) the Accountholder uses a MoneyPass ATM for the withdrawal. An ATM owner fee may also apply for withdrawals made outside of the MoneyPass ATM network. Transaction limits apply. See the Serve Consumer User Agreement for details.

Just got this e-mail. Seems like a great deal - can you direct deposit from anywhere? What's the best way to utilize this?

Got the same email. But don't want to setup direct deposit through pay check. Can we use Chase online payment to qualify the offer?

Yes I would do this but don't want to have to do it from a paycheck either. I went to the Serve site and the form it gives you seems like you have to give to your employer...way too much trouble for $50 in this case.

How much is your time worth? $50/hr? $25/hr? $10/hr? It can't take that long... I know in the past though there were other ways to do direct deposit without using an employer. Waiting for others to chime in...

In the past, with other bank deals (that required direct deposit), I was able to qualify by doing an ACH transfer from an existing bank or brokerage account, into the new bank (with the promotional offer).

Anyone see any possible objections to doing the same for the Serve account, here?

Just got this email also... In the past, I was able to transfer money from PayPal to do something like this.. But the T&C clearly state that such things will not be accepted.. No harm in trying though...

My time isn't worth that much but I have a feeling this just won't be possible without jumping through a lot of hoops...like hours and hours to just find out you can't do it.

But you are right and best to keep an open mind and see if anyone else can figure out how to do it. That is what SD is all about, after all.

DD is required from employer only. No ACH push push.

I have an option online to add new bank for a partial DD. Just set up DD for 3 times (to be safe) of $250 each. 5 minutes of my time. Pretty sure it will work.

An option online with who? What bank or other account? I have a credit union account and don't see that option, but if you can make it work, more power to you.

With my employer, which is awesome, as I can add delete bank info for DD with few clicks. Great for promos like this Smilie

do you have the option online to add a new bank on your SERVE account website or at another 'funding employer' bank account website?
