This Is What A Threat Looks Like

From @AmerBanker:

After years of providing financial services, Walmart is becoming a more formidable bank competitor with the addition of American Express’s checking account alternative, Bluebird.

The account, which is the first non-Serve card to be built on top of Amex’s digital wallet platform, lets users deposit checks by snapping a picture from their smartphones; electronically pay billers; send cash to friends; and do all of the above in a way that is nearly fee free.

Merchants will be charged Amex’s prepaid merchant discount rate on the Bluebird transactions.
