    I wrote about getting $10 free from American Express Serve here.

    I also wanted to report that I funded $100 through my Amex to the Serve account with no cash advance fees and was able to sweep the money back into my checking account after a day or so.

    I can't vouch for any other cards.

    The monthly limit is $250 (and daily limit of $100) so may not be worth the trouble, but an FYI for those trying to hit minimum spends.

    After January 1, 2012, there will be fees for:
    Funding your Serve account with a credit card (2.9% of the amount transferred + $0.30 per transfer)
    Getting cash from an ATM (first withdrawal per month is FREE**; after that, it’s $2.00)

    The game was kind of cool! But I thought the questions would be about Serve? got some trivia question about Henry the VIII ??? and only 15 seconds to Google the answer! Thanks for the $10.00

    Can you use an Amex card to fund your account? I tried three times and it said card number is invalid. which it is not I use it every day.

    For those who participated in this, after you've received an email from Serve, remember to accept the money by logging in to your account. I did the game a few days ago and only remembered to accept it today. According to the message from Serve, the cash will be gone after 7 days.

    I have been doing this for a while, you can fund up to $250 using your credit card each month.

    However, this month, when I went to do it, it says that my account is under investigation and I can't do that.

    So, be careful!

    Hmm. Answered the question, put in my e-mail, but didn't get anything in my inbox. Is there normally a delay?

    I'm curious about this. How do you use it? Do you send money to another person and vice versa?

    I fund the account with credit card and send it to another person and he can then withdraw the money to his bank

    I thought that others reported using the AXP issued cards to fund didn't draw a cash-advance fee, but didn't earn points either (or maybe that was the AAA/Target pre-paid card?)

    It's been about 4 days and I haven't received the email from the money maker trivia question. I don't see anywhere in Serve to accept the money. I assume because I need to do something with the email I haven't received. As far as I can tell there's no way forward for me and this is just a rock.

    A few days ago, I tried a second game and won another $10
    and claimed with a different e-mail.

    Within a few minutes I received an e-mail saying
    my account was permanently suspended for violation !

    The first $10 check came in my mailbox, deposited.
    Then another e-mail saying I should call them. I did.
    They talked me thru returning the second $10
    to them through their website. slick.

    Now I will try the $100 load friom AX card.

    And now I got some kind of Serve ATM card in the mail. Do I use this to withdraw my $10.00?
