Re: I want an AMEX Green. But why????

Hmmmm. I spoke with a CU rep and they swipe it as cash advance so as long as pre paid cards swipe that way then it'll work!

So how would that work if I were to swipe my debit card? I never have because I online bank with that CU so I just transfer from checking to the auto loan. How does that work with gift cards?

Debit cards just take it out of your bank account.   If you use a credit card, and it is coded as a cash advance, you get charged an additional fee and are also charged interest.   Not sure how a gift card would work, although not sure how a cash advance would work on a prepaid card, might just be an extra fee.

Yeah ill have to look into that. It seems like itd be possible because they claim it works just like a debit card! But who knows. It looks like adding spending to this PRG just for the bonus and justifying the annual fee isn't going over so well!

Can Serve be used to pay off a credit card?

I haven't used Serve, but most of my payments on Bluebird are to credit cards.

Yes, but I wouldn't use it to pay Amex.
