    Has anyone else run in to difficulties transferring money from their Bluebird account to their linked bank account? This function no longer works for me online. I had to call customer service to make the transfer -- not a viable workaround because of the time it took on hold with the CSR.

    Yes for about a month with one of my accounts. I think they are verifying names or something, as the one that I have issues with and get declined is another family members bluebird and the checking account to transfer to is mine. My bluebird and the wifes both go to accounts with our name on it.

    Some banks and brokerage firms are on BB's list of electronic payees. In those cases you can transfer out using the "bill payment" option. Of course, always test a new payee with a small amount.

    The problem appears to be rectified with their updated website.
