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.

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

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!

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