One thing I look forward to around Christmastime is that I know I’ll get to see my best buddy. My old college roommate. The girl who used to cut my hair on the porch of our old Charleston porch. The gal that I used to see all the time who moved to Chicago a few years ago. Her name is Melissa. Everyone calls her Melly. I call her Mizzy. The best college roommate you could ever have! Her laugh was infectious. I remember when she graduated and moved out how quiet the house seemed because I was so used to hearing her obnoxiously loud, but so pleasant to hear, laugh. Those were the days. . .
I did get to go visit Mizzy in Chicago during the summer of 2010. Just me. A girls’ weekend, just like old times! Anyway, before I go off on an unnecessary tangent, let me get to the point of the post.
I just found out about this cool new way to send and receive money securely. Serve is a new way to settle up with friends/buddies instantly. Let’s say you go out to dinner with a group of gal pals and the waiter/waitress doesn’t split the check. Or you go to dinner with a group and order some appetizers and a bottle of wine. It can be a little awkward at check time because you don’t want to pay for all of it, yet you don’t want to seem cheap. No big deal if everyone has a Serve account! Pay the bill and then split the check. The others can then quickly and easily transfer money to your account, right there at the table using the mobile ap! Or, do it later on your computer. Either way, it’s simple, fast and safe!
That’s what we did when Melly came to town to visit. Amex Serve treated my friends and I to an awesome dinner at The Fish Market in Baxter so we could try out the new program.
We had such a nice dinner of appetizers, salads, dinner and dessert. It was delish! Melly had one of their signature dishes, Chilean Sea Bass. I had the swordfish special and Sabrina and Mary Beth both had crab-stuffed lobster.
And of course we enjoyed a few fabulous bottles of wine as well.
Shortly after signing up you’ll receive a Serve debit card for your account. It can be used wherever American Express is accepted just like a debit card. As long as you have money in your account, you use it to make purchases in stores or online.
And here is how easy it was to exchange money after. . .
Just a few clicks and we were Even-Steven!
