Bluebird is a debit card program offered to anyone. American Express and WalMart have teamed together to bring you this alternative to your normal banking experience. The Bluebird card allows you to do just about anything that a bank card can such as direct deposits, check balances, pay bills online, add checks and even set up sub accounts for other family. The cool thing is you only work with the money you have in your account so you never will endure any overdraft fees.

You can also load money at any WalMart register making it even more convenient for you. The card can be used anywhere that accepts AMEX and it also offers access to more than 22,000 ATMs nationwide. Unlike a traditional debit card from a bank, Bluebird requires no minimum account balance and there are no monthly or annual fees either.
