Serve have announced that starting on April 16th, they will no longer allow you to load your card online with a credit card if it runs on the Visa, Mastercard or Discover network. They added the following to their website some time yesterday:
Starting April 16, 2015 you will only be able to use an American Express® Card if you want to load your account with a credit card. Discover, MasterCard and Visa credit cards will no longer be supported after April 16
At the moment it’s possible to load $1,000 a month online using Serve and a credit card. If you have Softcard Serve (which is sadly no longer available) it’s actually possible to load $1,500 a month online. It’ll still be possible to use American Express credit cards to load Serve, but credit cards that are issued by American Express will not earn any rewards.
At the moment there doesn’t seem to be any changes to loading Serve using a debit card (which has the same loading limits), but this could change in the future. Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter to find out how you could still get value out of Serve after April 16th. Although most people will find that they are better off using Target Redcard which allows credit card loads in stores.
