Bluebird by American Express, the card carried by Wal-Mart is a complete and total scam. They will give you your direct deposit for the first few pay times, at a later time of day each pay period. This time I did not receive my direct deposit. I called my coworkers with other bank accounts they received theirs just fine. I called bluebird they tell me to call back after 2 pm eastern time and will surely be there. 2 PM Eastern Time passes, so I call back and they inform me it will be no later than 4pm Eastern time. What I find most ridiculous is when I call from the same phone I called from earlier Bluebird says due to their success and high call volume, bluebird will not be able to take your call. I FIND IT VERY FUNNY I CALL FROM ANY OTHER NUMBER THEY ANSWER. THEY ARE A SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM, are doing something funny with my money and refusing to talk to me. Now I am holding for a supervisor. All they say is wait until 4pm est because we have had technical difficulties with our direct deposit system.

  • I too am in the same boat with Bluebird. Each of the last few pays my direct deposit has been going in later and later until today..nada. I have already updated my direct deposit info with my employer. An aside as well with this card is that if you pay for gas at the pump they put an automatic $100 charge, unlike MasterCard/Visa who both put a $1 charge whether it is Credit or Debit.
