Recent Reviews and Comments


  • Good card crappy app

    Glitchy, barely let's you check your balance


  • Crashes every time.

    I'd love to leave a review about this recent update, but so far the app just crashes. I expect it will remain this way for quite some time.... DONT UPDATE!!


  • App Crashes

    As of the last update on August 27, 2015 the app closes a soon as I log in. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and rebooted my phone. Please fix!


  • Useless

    This app always force closes when you try to logon don't install it


  • Great card, App needs some work

    The card is a life saver! It has all the features of a regular debit card without all the hassle. The card was very easy to activate and when I forgot my password customer service was extremely helpful and fixed my issue quickly and effectively. The app however needs some work, it keeps crashing and after deleting to try and fix the problem it will not let me redownload the app. Please fix quickly as I use my bluebird card and app multiple times a day!


  • Doesn't work

    App keeps force closing. Please fix!


  • Waste of time & money

    I am very disappointed with blue bird ! I heard great things but none of them were true. I've tried to activate my temp. Card & it will not let me on computer or mobile app. I've called the company multiple times for help , only to be told to "keep trying". I was also told there was nothing they could do. VERY disappointing .


  • Haven't had a problem

    I'm not for sure why all the bad comments and I use the app a lot. I thought it was fairly easy no complaints.


  • Crashes

    I don't think the app is that good. I download it , then it works when logging in , then after several times of the app being good. I'll try to log in and it crashes . So I totally delete the app and download again. Needs to be fixed ASAP!!


  • DO NOT UPDATE APP!!!

    AngryAfterUpdate I'm no longer able to even sign in to the app after the latest update - because it crashes EVERY single time I try to open it! I don't understand how changes can be made to a perfectly functioning application, and that non-functioning updated application be released, without anyone knowing there is a problem? I understand that mistakes can be made, or code can be written wrong, and that there will be issues because of this, but the app won't even open! After making the changes/enhancements for this update, did anyone even TRY to OPEN the app to TEST it BEFORE they released it??? Very frustrated!!! I tried to contact app support before writing this review by clicking on the link in the App Store, but the link re-directed me to the Bluebird website. My review before the latest update: I don't usually write reviews, but felt that I needed to let people know how great this card and app are. I signed up for, and received, a Bluebird card after seeing an advertisement about Walmart's Savings Catcher (which promoted the Bluebird card as the account to manage your earned Walmart Bucks). After receiving the card, I downloaded the Bluebird app simply to keep track of my card balance, and my Walmart Bucks balance. What I got was SO much more!! The first time I used the app, I discovered that I had access to a 'Set Aside' account. (It's basically a savings account, where you can set money aside from your main account balance to use at a later date.) I also discovered that I could set up sub-accounts for family members. (I can set up a sub-account for my son so he has his own card; I can fund his account with the amount I see fit, like allowance for doing his chores; I can also set account restrictions at my discretion, like an ATM withdrawal limit, or no ATM access if I want to keep track of where/how he's spending his money.) I couldn't believe everything I was able to do within this app! After discovering all that, I was also able to add my business debit card as a funding source. So within the app, I'm able to transfer funds to my Bluebird account with just a few clicks. And the funds are available IMMEDIATELY!! And that's still not all! After transferring funds from my business debit card (that charges me anywhere from $3-$6 for each ATM withdrawal, no matter where I go), I can go straight to an ATM (within the Bluebird network) and withdraw cash with NO fees!! (Additionally, there are no monthly, annual or overdraft fees, and there is no minimum balance requirement.) I'm SO thankful to have stumbled upon an app that does everything - things I didn't even know I needed it to do! And then some! The app works perfectly on my iPhone 4S. I've never had any issues with signing in, unavailable networks, or crashing. And all of the reviews complaining about the length of time it takes for funds to become available after initiating a deposit of a photo check through the app, or the photo check deposits not being approved - this is not an app issue! The developers of this app have no control over the Bluebird Terms of Service or Member Agreement.


  • Crashes

    I can't even login. Every time I try the app crashes. Not ok with this. Needs bug fixes.


  • Ugh

    I updated my app and now it just crashes every time I try to log in.


  • About to close

    This app took a full 24 hours to update and it's still taking forever to login I have to make multiple attempts before it lets me in. With the last version as well I am so fed up with this mess. I love the BB features of the card just fix the app. I don't want to stop using BB but I will if I cannot keep track of my money.


  • Ok but...

    It's ok but can use a widget on the notifications center


  • Can NEVER use

    App will open but if I try to login or use the quick balance, it closes. I end up having to resort to the website which is slow to load...


  • Nothing works

    Money is not recognized as available and app won't give preview balance or allow you to sign in. It keeps crashing. Would like to give zero stars but I can't.


  • word of advice: Don't bank w/blue bird

    If you don't want to be unconvinced of a sudden account closure and your money NOT being available to you at your convenience I suggest to you NOT to bank with blue bird!! thought bluebird was a continence because they have all of these awesome services. - checking - direct deposit - ability to link family accounts. Saturday at 9:45am my account was closed no other explanation except for the one listed below after spending more than four hours on the phone I was told by a CSR with a bad accept named "Kevin" my entire payroll check as well as my savings will be sent to me in a check form 7 - 10 business days. Without any warning so I can pull out my money. I received an email saying " During a recent review of your Account, we noticed activity that was in violation of the Bluebird Member Agreement, section: Section 10 and Section 22D Due to the violation, your Account has been closed. If you have any questions, please call Account Protection Services at 1-800-660-2454. Thanks, Bluebird


  • MIA Fingerprint ID!

    Hello? Security & convenience...


  • Excellent app !

    Bluebird rules !!! Cool app. Great way to manage money... But the fact that it takes several days to deposit a check is a joke. Change it.


  • Ugh

    Great app but it crashes too much!!


  • More check deposit

    Great app but it needs to let you deposit more checks then what it does know


  • Was pretty good, now keeps crashing

    I've had the card for over a year and use the app all the time. Since the last update it crashes almost instantly on starting. I've uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times and no better. I use an iPhone 4 with ios 7


  • Love this

    So far so good. No problems & easily convenient.


  • App

    Good app but a great card better than any bank account that I have ever had!


  • Used to work fine now not at all

    I've had the bluebird card and app for 4 yrs now and so far I've loved all the updates and new uses keep adding features they are awesome


  • Upgrade ruined it

    Are you ever going to fix this app? Crashes when I try to login to actually use app and has been this way for a long time.


  • Amex people don't know how to take suggestions

    I spent almost an hour with a rep and then a supervisor both saying the same thing over and over again. Why does a family account teenager or anyone else for that matter have to have their own phone to register for their own family account card? You have to supply a separate phone number which is crazy. The primary card holder's number should be sufficient. The family account feature is great if you could register for it. The set aside account also protects your funds which a debit card does not do to my knowledge. If you cannot use the features because of a stupid registration process, what good is it?


  • Great job!

    Haven't had a problem with it!!


  • Crashes too often

    It used to crash every now and then but with each update it's gotten progressively worse. Now, it crashes almost every time before I can log in. Both after typing in my password and swiping right for the quick balance. This is MOST frustrating when I need a balance fast and can't get to a computer. The only reason I gave it more than one star is because when I can actually get into the app, it's a great app. It's a shame it doesn't happen too often.


  • Suggestion

    Maybe you guys could do like some of the other apps where they can do a thumb print touch to log in so I don't have to type my password in every time... I would really like that but other than that I love this app.. Thanx!!!


  • This App is horrible!!!

    Every time I try to log in to write a check it crashes! This app is not usable, never opens! FIX IT!!! 😡😡


  • WORST APP EVER.

    This app is seriously the worst one I've ever used. Crashes 100% of the time and is not even usable. Don't waste your time trying to use it after it crashes EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!!!!


  • FIX THE APP ASAP!!!

    I can't log into my account!!! Just fix the app please!


  • Really Great where accepted

    AMEX BB card is wonderful but not everyone will accept it, but it's ok, just keep a MC or Visa with you. I especially love the Amex cash back offers however, you guys need to add more popular one's in a user area. I know I would used it more.Ex: Walmart, Target, Panera Bread, McDonald's Wendy's, Red Lobster, the only current Amex offers that I am familiar with,is Whole Foods, please add more vendors


  • No Passport Support

    Happy with card and app, but card cannot be added to use for Apple Pay. Passbook says: "issuer does not yet offer support for this card". I hope this changes - I would use the card more often. I use Apple Pay in any place that takes it. I use it with my other cards out of convenience, instead of my bluebird card.


  • FIX THIS APP NOW

    I have not been able to sign in to the app for some time now. I just got an update, so I thought maybe you fixed the issue with it crashing when you try to open the app, so I updated, but no fix! It still crashes and will not open. Come on, fix this stupid app!!!


  • Updates PLEASE

    Touch ID to login would be great. Why does it take 6 business days to add funds by check? Apple pay is a must. Cmon Amex get current please.


  • Works sometime

    It works sometime it won't let me submit the funds I want to add


  • Could Offer More

    I do like the benefits of the Bluebird account but there's some things that's missing--no Touch ID or passcode to unlock the app, no Apple Pay available although American Express offers Apple Pay, unable to view monthly statements from the app, etc. When the debit card on your account expires, then you must call customer service and speak to an agent which will then call your bank to verify the debit card belongs to you. While I have no problem with verifying my account, this should be able to be verified online or via app. For this to be owned by American Express, there's many features available by the prepaid American Express that's not offered here. On the plus side, this account is great for making online purchases rather than using your debit card or credit card. Any checks written on the account are guaranteed funds like a cashier's check without paying the fee for a cashiers check.


  • Funds

    Not sure what the others are talking about but my funds are immediately available when taken from my debt account.


  • Add card

    Trying to add a debit card is impossible and according other reviews I saved myself the hassle.


  • Latest update crashed the app

    Can't even do the quick balance check


  • Crashes after update. No support.

    Crashes each time you try to log in after last update. Worse is that there is no support site. The app support link goes to the bluebird home page.


  • Fail

    Crashes on login, post-update. I thought this update fixed bugs, not added them.


  • App

    Ever since I did the update the app will not even open?


  • Kicks me out

    I go to sign in and put in my password and it kicks me out a bunch if times before it accepts my password. And it dose this every time I go to sign in.


  • Boots me

    Download the upgrade and now I can't even use the app...awesome upgrade


  • To slow to add funds

    I hate how long it takes to have funds available. Please speed up this process.


  • Availability

    The ability to add funds from bank account on the mobile app takes too long for funds to be available. 5 business days? That's too long. Also for log in it should have finger print scanner. Other then those 2 things it is a great app.


  • Crashes every time

    Unusable. Boots me from app after logging in
