Where did Bluebird’s Transfer Money button go?

When logging into your Bluebird account, there used to be a nice little “transfer money” button on the “Recent Transactions” bar near the middle of the screen.  Like this:

Now, it’s gone.  The Recent Transactions bar now looks like this:

I used to transfer money to my checking account regularly.  Now, unless someone can find the missing button, I’ll have to “pay bills” or write checks.

Has anyone seen the transfer money button recently?  Where did it go?

Hat tip: numerous readers.

UPDATE: Commenter Snow told how to find the Transfer option.  Here’s how:

 

Step 1: Click “Add Funds”

Step 2: Select “add new funding source”

Step 3: Click “here” (literally, click the word “here”)

I had the same problem yesterday. It took some searching but I eventually found it after going through “Add/Edit Funding Source” and then scrolling to the “here” located underneath the bank section. Still works the same as before.

This doesn’t sound very good. 🙁

On another note, plink is changing the way they pay out rewards. I hope it’s not too restrictive.

avidtraveler: Are you talking about this on the Plink site?:

Why can’t I redeem for more than $10?

@Frequent Miler,

Do you know whats the limit to transfer $ to checking accounts? How much do you usually transfer? I dont want to transfer too much to raise any red flags. Please advise!

Thanks in advance.

Poorstudentblog: thanks

Bundy: What I genderally do is wait a few weeks after loading it up and then transfer out all but a few odd hundred. I can’t say whether that’s safe or not, but so far so good for me

You can also get to it by clicking “Add/edit bank account” which is normally right below the title of whatever you named your account. Then scrolling down a bit and clicking where it says “click here to transfer funds to your bank account.” Seems like they are trying to hide it! Definitely threw me for a loop!

Thank you!!! I was starting to fret over this and thought that maybe Bluebird was punishing me for my frequent transfers.

If you order the FRICKIN CHECKS then we would not be having this conversation………..no disrespect intended……….

Wow!! Today is the VERY FIRST TIME where I knew something that the Frequent Miler did not know. Amazing. I’ll have to buy a lottery ticket today – must be my lucky day.

Here’s a more serious question. Is there a limit on such transfers (the number of transfers per month, the dollar amount of each transfer, or the total dollars transferred per month)? I tried my first transfer (for $2500) a few days ago and the BB website accepted it without a hitch. Am now waiting to verify that it hits my bank account.

For me most of what I use Bluebird for is the places where I don’t have a routing and account number….ie water company, electric company, all the other autobill pay companies where my billpay checks a check without me getting any miles………..

On the final page it asks for a pin. I set this account up a long time ago but didn’t use it till a couple days ago. Is there a way to reset my pin, tried a couple things but no go, and I have no idea what it would be.

Nguyen: I don’t know.

Ed L: There is a $10K per month limit.

Joe S: There must be a way to reset the PIN. Call and ask if you can’t find the info online.

Bluebird appears to have moved this option again: my account-> withdraw funds -> transfer to bank.

Sucia: Thanks. I’m glad they made it relatively easy to find again!

I’m not seeing a way to transfer from Bluebird to another bank account. Am I doing it wrong?

FrequentMiler

They’ve made it easy to find again. Just click on the little menu button at the top right and click settings. Then click withdraw funds

Thanks for the update (couldn’t find it). I transferred $4000 without a problem last month and again today.
