Budgeting for Your Future – American Express Serve Cash Back Card #ServeSomeGood #IC

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for American Express Serve. I applied for the Serve Cash Back card to facilitate my review and received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

As our children become older, they also have more opportunities to earn and spend money. They learn a lot from what we tell them but as with most things, they do what we show them. Knowing this has made us much more conscious of our spending when we have them out shopping with us.  We want them have good habits and solid budgeting in their financial future. Those habits start now, with the smaller purchases we make every day.

And let’s face it…. not everything is a “necessity” no matter how much we rationalize it.

Regardless of our spending habits, everyone could use a refresher lesson in budgeting and financial responsibility. The new American Express Serve Cash Back card is the first prepaid debit card to offer cash back. I am going to be doing an experiment in teaching our kids and myself better budgeting habits in the months leading up to the holidays. #GOALS

These months can be the trickiest to budget for so I think its a perfect time to teach these skills. Our family is taking a trip to New York this Christmas so we will have to be extremely careful with our budget so that we can do a few “extras” during trip.  I feel like this is a huge part of preparing our children for an independent life and another reason I am so excited about the American Express Serve Cash Back card.

Who’s with me??? You can sign up too!!! Go here to sign up now or read on for more details.


How do I get a the card & how much does it cost? The prepaid debit card is FREE is you register on-line and have it mailed to you. Otherwise you can purchase a card at a retailer for up to $3.95, price varies depending on the retailer.

Fees? There are no minimum balances required or hidden fees. There is a monthly fee of $5.95 for American Express Serve® Cash Back card holders

Can I use the prepaid debit card for cash? The card can be used to withdraw cash from over 24,000 MoneyPass® ATMs.

Is there a mobile app? An available mobile app gives you the option to check your balance, see recent transactions, pay bills, make deposits

Can I use it to send money? Yes! Send money to family and friends (18 years or older)  with a American Express Serve Cash Back account. Note, if you can send them money, they can send you money which is nice.

Another thing I love about the American Express Serve® cash back card is that customers have access to all the benefits of being in the American Express network. This is a great way to prepare our older children to manage their own money before having the responsibility of credit but still having the access to benefits like a traditional American Express cardholder including:World Class 24/7 American Express Customer Service,  Access to special offers, Purchase Protection, which protects eligible purchases made with the Card against accidental damage and theft for up to 90 days from the date of purchase, and Roadside Assistance Hotline they can call in case of emergency.
