I found this announcement and thought it was pretty awesome for free points for just using a pre-paid card. Something I do already from time to time, might as well some freebies for a game I already play.

RP+ from American Express Serve is offering a new way for League of Legends players to get RP – you can earn RP when you sign up and start using your Full Service Reloadable Prepaid Account:

+1,000 RP after successful sign up and email verification
+1,000 RP the first time you load $20 or more to your Account
+10,000 RP the first time you use Direct Deposit to add $20 or more to your Account
+100 RP for each of your first 10 Card purchases
+Continue earning RP on the things you already buy


Choose a Card design with Teemo, Vi, Lux, Twisted Fate, the Summoner's Cup or the League of Legends logo, depending on how you'd like to represent off the Fields of Justice.

A few things to remember before you sign up:
Accountholders must be 18 or older (or 19 in certain states)
Accountholders must be US residents
You must have a North American League of Legends account to earn rewards
No credit check or minimum balance

Value of over $100 in Riot Points for us League of Legends gamers.

As of 9/20/14, the RP+ Amex card is no longer available. Existing members are still able to earn RP.

Please make sure you know the difference between a CREDIT card and a Pre-paid Debit Card BEFORE you post. This is NOT a credit card, it does not pull your credit to use it, it does not utilize credit.

You can withdraw Paypal funds to a bank account trigger direct deposit 10k bonus, with that bank account being this Amex Serve account. This has been confirmed to work to receive the 10,000 RP DD.

Can also do with amazon payments.
Possible workaround to the DD necessary for the 10000 RP bonus

there is $1 monthly fee. You can cancel the account after getting your rp bonus.

Alternate Pre-paid debit card option
This posts mentions another Serve prepaid debit card you can get that instead of giving you Riot points, gives you cash, which you can then use to purchase an equivalent value of riot points, but would end up giving you the 2000 RP bonus associated with buying with cash. See the post for details.

i saw this too
does anyone know if loading the card with money will cost a fee?

if it doesnt cost a fee to load money onto the card this would be awesome to dump left over rebate cards into.

i love lol.

I can't wait for these to show up in stores. I hope the fees are either non-existant, or are very minimal.

I'm wondering if this needs to be linked to your account for the points to appear, or if you get redemption codes to redeem for RP. I'm sure there is something linking to the account so that you can't just keep doing this over and over.

So I get the feeling that they'll be expecting abuse and only allowing the initial bonus rewards once per account.

Well, I just registered, and I'm very excited. It even let's you choose you own Card style/art. I chose Teemo, but there was like 6-8 to choose from.

Warning for those who have a Amex Bluebird - I don't believe you are eligible for a Serve card if you already have Bluebird.

I can't set up the direct deposit until after I get the card in a few days, but I'm wondering what sources of Direct Deposit does it allow? Is it only a direct deposit from like my Work paycheck system? I don't think I'd want to ask my HR department to direct deposit into my Teemo card...

However, if it allows me to direct deposit just from my regular bank account or from my Visa card, that would be perfect. Then I'd get my reward points from Visa, and get all my RP from this card. Basically, sending money from my Credit Card to a Debit card, then spending it from there for the double dip in reward bonuses.

Disappointed that there's no Annie/Tibbers card, though.

You have to set it up with anyone you get payroll from.

LOL @ the people on the link comments who don't understand how direct deposit works. No, you don't get 11,000 points for loading $20 onto the card... Direct deposit is when your work deposits your check into an account without you ever seeing/getting the check (My company does not allow Direct Deposit and it sucks for me).

Either way, pretty cool!

Darn, I was hoping at least it would work like something similar to Paypall or my EZpass, where my bank account can deposit money onto it. I'm sure that works for putting money on it, but you're right, it likely wouldn't count as direct deposit for the bonus.

Is there any downside to this? I see there is no credit check...but I'm not one to signup for cards willy nilly.

Here's some fine print:

Offer subject to change or cancellation at any time. Cash withdrawals, cash equivalent purchases, P2P transactions, and Account fees are not eligible to earn Riot Points (RP). If the first funds loaded onto your account are via Direct Deposit then you will qualify for both the 1,000 and 10,000 RP. Receive 100 RP for each of your first 10 purchases using your American Express Serve Card, after which you will receive 1 RP for each Card purchase up to $3.00. Increased point thresholds will then apply for each Card purchase in $3 increments as follows: up to $3.00: 1 RP; $3.01-$6.00: 2 RP; $6.01-$9.00: 3 RP; $9.01-$12.00: 4 RP; etc. Direct Deposit is not available with all employers. Please allow up to two billing cycles for the first Direct Deposit payment to appear in your account. Allow up to 30 days after you register, add money, enroll in Direct Deposit, or complete a spend transaction for the RP credits to appear in your League of Legends game account. RP is subject to Riot Games
