Serve from American Express
Everyone experiences this – go out to dinner with friends, the check comes, and people start scrambling for calculators, their wallets and scrounging up bills smaller than a $20. I know it can’t just be my friends and I – it’s hard to always get exact or close, so you wind up with “can you toss in a few bucks for me? I’ll get you next time” and while that usually works out and evens out in the end, maybe you want less uncertainty in this part of your life.
That’s where Serve, a new program from American Express, comes in. Available for Droid and iPhone (and you can use the internet to send money via email – thus my BlackBerry in the above pic, cuz I am not elite in terms of smartphones… anyone want to buy me an Evo or iPhone? Hahaha!), you can instantly send funds to your friend sitting across the table from you. It also comes equipped with a bill calculator – input how many people are eating, and it will even help you calculate tip.
Right now, there’s even a $10 bonus for signing up. You should totally sign up – not just for the $10 but because for the next week, if you comment below, you’re entered to win an extra $100 to be deposited into your account!
