Here we are again – just two months after the initial round of closures to Bluebird/Serve cards, American Express has gone another another spree of closing more accounts.
More Bluebird/Serve Closures – But Some Still Remain
It had appeared, initially, that the last round was a closure to across all the accounts but many escaped the axe. Those that had escaped proceeded cautiously as many people tried to gather data points to figure out what may have caused the closures on some cards but not all.

Some Still Alive
However, not even this latest closure has shut down all the Bluebird/Serve cards. One card I have access to, a Serve card, has not been closed. But, we also have not done any activity with it at all since the last round. It will be interesting to see what the data points are regarding the accounts that have just been closed and those that still remain open.
Frequent Miler guesses that if Amex follows this possible pattern of doing closures 9 weeks apart, we should know the fate of the still-open Bluebird/Serve cards next on May 6.
Did you get closed down this time? What activity had you done since the last closures?
