SERVE, released several months ago, is American Express’s version of Paypal. It allows you to send and receive money online, as well as to accept payments and even pay in-person using a SERVE card that acts just like a debit card, pulling money from your SERVE account.
For a limited time only, SERVE by American Express is offering a free $25 for new SERVE accounts that load $25 into their account. You can add your bank account to your SERVE account, and after you receive the free bonus $25, you can simply withdraw all the money back to your bank account if you don’t plan on using or spending with your SERVE account.
Keep in mind though, that American Express’s new Bluebird card seems to be running on the same system as SERVE, so there may be some issues with creating an account using the same email address. (I have not verified if this is true creating a SERVE account if you already have a Bluebird account. I do know from personal experience, however, that having a SERVE account conflicts with creating a Bluebird account.)
