Fourth Round Of BlueBird/Serve Shutdowns

If you’ve just entered the MS world in the last few months, you probably don’t know what Serve and Bluebird is. It’s now part of the “good old times”. But there’s actually some more people out there that still have those cards and Amex is apparently still going after them. After three rounds of shutdowns, in January, March and April, there’s now a fourth round after a four month break.

Yesterday there was a new wave of emails telling people that the loading capabilities on their cards have been suspended. I don’t have any cards left, as my last one was killed on the third round of shutdowns.

Here’s the text of today’s email:

    has anyone successfully reopened serve/bb after being shut down?
    does using a different phone #, email, address work? or is it all tied to the SSN?
