Important Changes to BlueBird Announced

Our site may contain affiliate links. Read Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

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.

Bottom Line

At least these are changes don’t really affect the ability to load money onto your BlueBird. Do you use Bluebird?

  1. We had an unpleasant surprise at Walmart yesterday. The cashiers, who are very friendly and pleasant, said there is a new policy and they will only load one card at a visit, regardless of whether anyone is waiting, a situation I always try to be sensitive to. Wondering if this is everywhere or just my Walmart?

  2. Ironic your name is ‘Kate’ in a WalMart/Bluebird loading post:)
    Anyway, my latest experience with loading “debit”(remember, never “gift”) cards is biz as usual. In fact, since the kiosk was down(shocking!) the Money Center staff was as accomodating as usual.
    You might wanna cite Kate as proof that a one card a day limit is simply not correct.
