AmEx and Walmart Announce the Addition of FDIC Insurance to Bluebird

Amex logo 140pxAmerican Express and Walmart have announced expanded security and funding capabilities to Bluebird, a debit and checking alternative that provides Americans with a better way to manage and control their everyday spending.

Customers can also balance their Bluebird checkbook in real-time with pre-authorized check writing, add checks to their Bluebird Account by mail and add funds up to $100,000 annually.
