Ways to Add Money to Your Bluebird Card

As a Bluebird card holder, you have many options for adding money to it. Below are the various ways to add funds to your prepaid card:

Wire Transfer

Do you have a savings or checkings account? You can transfer money from your bank directly to your Bluebird card through wire transfer. However, you may need to check with your bank on the charges per transfer. Also, the wire transfer may not be instant. It could take a few days, so you may want to consider other methods if you need the funds immediately. For wire transfers, you're only limited to $2,000 per month.

Simply link your bank to Bluebird via the app to add money from your debit card to your Bluebird account.

Through Retailers

Only Walmart and Money Center Kiosks offer free money transfers to your Bluebird account.

There is a small fee if you want to use other retailers. CVS, Walgreens, Duane Reade, Dollar General, and 7-11 stores may charge up to $3. 95 per transfer.

Direct Deposit

If you want a convenient way to add money to your Bluebird, set up a direct deposit from your paycheck or other federal payments such as tax refunds, VA benefits, Social Security benefits, or Worker's compensation.

Check Deposit

With a check deposit, you can either mail it, cash it at Walmart, or use a mobile check deposit.

There are no fees if you want to receive your money in days. However, if you're going to get them right away, there is a fee of up to 5 percent of the check amount. The amount depends on the type of check you're depositing.

Checks that are more than $2,000 are sent via regular mail. If you're using the mobile app, you can deposit up to $2000 per day and $10,000 per month.

How to Check Bluebird Card Balance

You can check your balance online by logging in to your Bluebird account or via the mobile app. Account holders can also call Customer Service to check their balance. Other ways to check card balance are through text, swiping your card at a retailer's register, and checking your transaction receipts.
