(UPDATE: The American Express Prepaid Card is no longer available, instead you should check out American Express Serve Card.)
Before American Express introduced its Bluebird account, it offered the American Express Prepaid Card, which is a decent prepaid card in its own right.
The American Express Prepaid Card only has one fee: $2 per ATM withdrawal after the first ATM withdrawal per month (the ATM operator may impose a surcharge). Cardmembers will have to pay to purchase third-party reload services if they want to load cash into the prepaid card.
Noteworthy card features
- No activation, monthly maintenance or inactivity fees
- First ATM withdrawal per month is free
- Additional benefits include purchase protection, roadside assistance and emergency assistance
