Bluebird financial services ensure rapid access to funds in any situation. You can pay bills using your Bluebird card, online Bill Pay or Bluebird Checks, or transfer money instantly to anyone else with a Bluebird account.
Building a nest egg
Whether you're saving up for a rainy day, or you're expecting some big expenses in the next few days, we understand the best place for your money is in your own account. Enroll in Direct Deposit to gain access to pay checks up to 2 days faster compared to a standard payday electronic deposit. You can also arrange to receive your tax refund by Direct Deposit: You don't have to wait for your refund check in the mail, and you have the added convenience of the cash going directly to your Bluebird account for use when shopping or paying bills.
You even have an opportunity to gain instant access to funds paid to you by check. Simply use the Mobile Check Capture by Ingo Money through the Bluebird Mobile app. The cash is available for free within 10 days if your check isn't returned unpaid, or you can access the money within minutes for a small fee. The total fee to instantly access the funds is 1 percent on payroll, government and preprinted checks, or 5 percent on other checks (minimum fee $5).
Swift and secure
Keeping your money safe matters, and your Bluebird account makes protecting your finances a priority. Purchase Protection lets you shop with confidence, as eligible purchases have protection against accidental damage and theft for up to 90 days from the point of sale. Additionally, Fraud Protection means that we protect you against fraudulent purchases if your Bluebird card is lost or stolen. We'll even replace your card for free.
