The American Express Bluebird Card is advertised as a good alternative to a bank account. This is why my husband and I opted to purchase one. When we got the packet home and registered online, and attempted to link up a direct deposit to the card, this is when we discovered this card is for EMPLOYEE PAYROLL ONLY. Having a government based direct deposit is not permissible. If this information had been printed on the packaging on the card (it's on the website but not on the package you get at the store), we would not have bothered with it.
We chose this card so we could have my husband's VA travel reimbursement deposited into it, because the government is no longer issuing cash or paper checks and is requiring all recipients of such funds to provide a routing number and bank account where the funds can be deposited.
