Can Serve be used to pay off a credit card?


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


Thanks for the tip. I don't have any Amex cards.

Also, it's best to PIF the card you use to load Serve.  Chase or Citi couldn't care less you've used it to load Serve, unless you start carrying a balance on a 0% promo; here, they could suspect you of "circumventing" the cash advance portion of the T&C.

 

But, if you use 3 charges on 3 cards each under $100, neither issuer would even bother with it, even if it triggered something.

Hmmm

Oh, I don't know!  Pretty linear for the internet.

 

1) I want an Amex green because they are so boss

2) Oh, the PRG is even more boss (it's GOLD!)

3) But would THAT AF be justified, since some of my bills can't even be paid with Amex

4) and so onto methods to do this.

 

And actually, I think Bluebird and Serve are really underrated here, they are very useful tools to get some rewards for bills you cannot pay with CCs. (That's not MY interest in BB, but it's still a good one!)

Lexie, those pages were too complicated for me. What I got from this thread in a nutshell is the importance of feeling like a boss. lol

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

How bout a good watch or a car? Seems to be a lot more "eye-catching" when one wears an expensive watch as opposed to having a plastic card.

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

Hahahaha funny you should mention, i LOVEEEE watches!  My friends think I'm crazy but I own a few decent watches, my notable one would be the Movado Series 800 :smileyhappy: I'm paying a decent price for my car too and trying to throw some money into that from time to time!  I just need to improve the plastic now!  I mean what 21 year old guy with a decent full time job wouldn't try to be a little flasy sometimes?  If you can play the role, why not?  I think I do a decent job.  I guess things will change some once I have even more bills, a mortage, and maybe a kid or two running around!

AMEX BCE- $12,600 I Discover IT- $10,000 I Chase Freedom- $7,000 I Citi Double Cash- $3,300 I Best Buy- $2,800 I Bayport CU Visa- $1,000
