Walmart debit card

American Express and Walmart are teaming up. The companies have come up with a new low-fee prepaid debit card called Bluebird.

There's no annual fee, activation fee or monthly service fee. There's a $2 charge for out-of-network ATM withdrawals, but no fee associated with purchases, including electronic bill pay.

You can deposit money several ways, including payroll direct deposit, using cash at any Walmart register, or by linking a checking, savings, or debit card to the account. Walmart currently offers a prepaid Visa/Mastercard debit card with a $3 monthly service charge.
