You’ll now be able to load your eligible Serve account for free at Dollar General and Rite Aid stores.
While the press release refers to adding cash, folks have been able to load their accounts with certain PIN-enabled Visa and MasterCard gift cards at some other locations in the American Express network, like Family Dollar and Walmart.
I have NOT tried loading Serve at either location with a PIN-enabled gift card, so I’m NOT sure if it works. But I’m looking forward to trying!
For example, CVS is also part of the AMEX cash reload network. But you can NOT use a PIN-enabled gift card to add funds to your Serve account at CVS.
If PIN-enabled gift cards DO work, this could make it more convenient for many folks who aren’t near a Walmart or Family Dollar, but have a Dollar General or Rite Aid close-by.
Read my post on how to decide which AMEX prepaid account is right for you!
I’m traveling right now so I won’t be able to test this right away. But if you’re near a Dollar General or Rite Aid and decide to try loading your Serve account with a PIN-enabled gift card, please share your experience in the comments!
