I’m a huge fan of my American Express Bluebird since I’m able to load money on it to pay bills and a way to help increase my credit card spending.
I just got the following email from American Express about these changes:
We are writing to inform you of some changes to the terms and conditions of your Bluebird® Account. Please review the changes below and share them with any Family Account holders:
• Out-of-Network ATM Fees:
Beginning October 30, 2014, the fee for withdrawing funds using out-of-network ATMs will increase from $2.00 to $2.50. ATM operator fees may also apply.
• Free In-Network MoneyPass® ATMs:
Effective immediately, all Bluebird Customers can withdraw funds for free when using in-network MoneyPass ATMs. You can find one of the more than 24,000 MoneyPass ATMs below.
• ATM Withdrawal Limits Increase:
We have increased your daily ATM limit, so you can withdraw up to $750 per day. Your monthly ATM withdrawal limit will remain at $2,000.
At least these are changes don’t really affect the ability to load money onto your BlueBird. Do you use Bluebird?
