Amex Serve Credit Card Loads Still Possible After April 15?


I logged into my Serve account the other day to do a bill pay and to my surprise, the option to load from my Citi Double Cash Mastercard was back. If you remember, Serve announced that after April 15, 2015, they would be ending credit card loads from Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. I had checked on the 16th and sure enough the option was gone but it seems like Serve has placed the option back for the time being.

I did a test load and it went through! I went to the green "Add Money" button and there is a clickable link titled "Change Source" which allows me to select either my bank account or my credit card for the load. It may be important to note that I was a Softcard signup and I kept my card tied to my account after April 15.

I’m not sure how long this will stick around but since I do not yet have the Fidelity Amex, this is good news for me. The Fidelity Amex is a third party card that uses the American Express network which should still work for the 2% cash back using Serve.

You can see from the screenshot below that the Mastercard load is dated April 21th.
