Get $50 with Direct Deposit

For a limited time, sign up for Direct Deposit and get a $50 credit to your American Express Serve® Account when you receive two Direct Deposits of $250 or more.

https://www.serve.com/pslearnmore...60890:10:0

Terms:

To receive the $50 credit from American Express Serve, you must: (i) successfully sign up for a new American Express Serve Account, (ii) activate your American Express Serve Card, (iii) successfully enroll in Direct Deposit if your employer or government benefits provider participates in and (iv) receive a minimum of two qualifying Direct Deposit transfers of $250 or more to your American Express Serve Account, the second of which must post on or before March 31, 2014. A qualifying Direct Deposit is defined as a recurring Direct Deposit of a paycheck or other regular monthly income electronically deposited by a payor into your American Express 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 American Express Serve receives the transfer from your payor. However, in some instances it may take several days for American Express Serve to receive your payor's transfer, so please allow sufficient time for that process to occur. Statement credit will be posted to your American Express Serve Account within thirty (30) days of your satisfying the above requirements. Limit one (1) $50 credit per American Express 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). Direct Deposit is not available with all employers. Please allow up to two pay cycles for the first Direct Deposit to appear in your Account.

I Found this from GOOGLE.

Step 1: Sign up for Amex Serve @ https://www.serve.com/
You should get your 1000RP in a few hours after you have completed this step
Step 2 Make an Amazon Payments account @ https://payments.amazon.com/
Step 3 Link your Main bank account to your AP account
Click on the add funds button http://i.imgur.com/kVaKj2z.png
Click on Add Bank Account http://i.imgur.com/onAFUsB.png
In put your bank details and DL number.http://i.imgur.com/RK8KlkL.png
This step is time consuming and can be a bit confusing. If your bank has an online banking option you will be able to securely log in from AP to instantly verify your account. If you don't have online banking or do not want to use the instant option then AP will verify by having you confirm 2 random deposits that they will make into your account. AP will make 2 deposits less than $0.99 into your account and you must then log in and find out the values and use those to verify. This step takes about 1-2 days in total.
Step 4 Link your Amex Serve account to your AP account. In order to do this you must 1st activate your Serve card which takes 4-5 business days to arrive in the mail. Once your card is activated you need to get the serve direct debit details and use those to link your serve account to AP.
Log into serve and go to mywallet -> funding sources http://i.imgur.com/FWnrnxc.png
Under Fund your Account Go to the Direct Debit part and click on enroll. http://i.imgur.com/EVe4cuu.png
From there either you will be able to see your amex serve routing number and account number. http://i.imgur.com/EVe4cuu.png
If not click on open form and get the numbers from there.

Next Repeat the parts of Step 3 again but this time using your Amex Serve Details. Amex serve does not allow for AP instant verification so you will have to verify the 2 random deposit values to confirm your account. It will look something like this. http://i.imgur.com/cB9cx1m.png
Step 5 Transfer $250 from your bank account into your AP account.
NOTE THIS STEP CAN TAKE 7-10 DAYS Log into your AP account and go to Add funds http://i.imgur.com/TYC3WOd.png
Under Add funds select your Regular BANK ACCOUNT and choose your amount (in this case use $250). http://i.imgur.com/2LPHGA0.png
Step 6 Once the funds are added to your AP Account go back and instead of Add funds Select WITHDRAW FUNDS. http://i.imgur.com/1RTL9YP.png
In the withdraw funds tab select your AMEX SERVE ACCOUNT. and choose $250 to withdraw. http://i.imgur.com/tX92OwG.png


Update: 8/22/2014
I called in this morning and spoke with a rep regarding the direct deposit promotion. I was informed that the promotion has been extended until Sep. 29th, 2014. Good luck all!

Do we need to pay any monthly fees to Amex for maintaining the serve accounts (like other prepay cards)?

From terms:

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.

But as iBoo says, it worked on amazon payments.

On the same account? How did you do that? Did you just use different funding sources each time? I would think it would know the first time you already did the promo.
