Extended: Free AMEX Bluebird Checks Until June 1, 2014

Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook or Twitter!

I’ve written lots about American Express Bluebird and how you can use it to pay bills you can’t normally pay with a credit card, send money to other Bluebird users, or write checks for regular expenses.

By loading your Bluebird account with Vanilla Reloads or pre-paid gift cards you’ve bought with a credit card, you can earn lots of miles and points on expenses you would have otherwise paid cash for.  However, it’s become much harder to buy Vanilla Reloads with a credit card because CVS will no longer sell them with a credit card!  But perhaps you stocked up!

Bluebird was going to start charging for check orders after April 1, 2014.  But you can now order Bluebird checks for free until June 1, 2014!

This is a good deal, because Bluebird normally charges ~$26 for 50 checks, or ~$33 for 100 checks.
