For the past several weeks I’ve been telling you that I would be working with Bluebird and American Express to document my experiences using the card over the next month or so. I told you how simple it was to sign up for the card, receive it and register your bank account to add money to it. This week I want to tell you about some of the fabulous account features Bluebird has – I know you’ll be impressed!
Bluebird allows you to create subaccounts. You can transfer money to special subaccounts for children, nannies, employees or anyone else in your life! You can designate up to 4 subaccounts and each user gets their own card. They only have access to the funds you designate for their subaccount! My husband has a subaccount of my card and I put money on it each week for him. He loves that he can use the card anywhere and that he only has a limited amount of money accessible! This would be great for teenagers!
Bluebird comes with a feature that lets you transfer from Bluebird to Bluebird accounts. You can use this feature for example when dining out with friends and you want to split the bill or even splitting gas if you’re on a road trip with friends!
Bluebird has a smartphone app. I am all about the apps that make my life easier! This way I can track my Bluebird account and spending with just one touch from my phone. It’s so much easier than accessing the account online through my phone! You can even set up alerts which I love!
The premium features are the most impressive to me. I love the purchase protection you get when you use Bluebird. Purchase Protection provides coverage if an item you buy gets damaged or stolen within 90 days of purchase. This would have come in handy last year when I got a new HTC phone and proceeded to drop it in a glass of water a few weeks after I got it! It was an accident but it was an expensive accident! I wish I had Bluebird then!
Roadside Assistance is another important premium feature that Bluebird carries. Roadside service is provided anywhere in the US regardless of how far away from home you are. It covers all kinds of things like towing and flat tire change!
I love the Bluebird tagline – Loaded with Features. Not Fees. Bank account fees are increasing all the time and many banks now charge per transaction! With Bluebird you’ll have an alternative and much lower fees and in many cases no fee! Here is the fee schedule:
As you can see Bluebird provides a great value! You can sign up for a FREE card (doesn’t impact your credit) online at Bluebird or you can purchase a kit for $5 at the Bluebird kiosk inside your local Walmart!
I am working with American Express on a sponsored Bluebird campaign. My opinions are my own.
