Get $50 With Direct Deposit To Bluebird

Written by Charlie

American Express is making a play to get more people to treat the Bluebird program as a real checking account. To help incentivize people to do that with direct deposits, they are offering $50 when you initiate two direct deposits over $250 into your Bluebird account.

Important Things To Know

First of all, my wife and I each received these e-mails but my e-mail says only $25. Also, the terms say that the offer is only available for the e-mail address that received it.

However, according to a press release from American Express (that can be seen here), anyone who has not previously enrolled for direct deposit is eligible for this statement credit. If you enroll and do not receive the bonus cash, definitely contact them to inquire about it. The number is 855-306-7394.

After the bonus posts, you can change your direct deposit back. I know it can be a little hassle, but for $50, I think it is worth it!
