At Walmart you may buy a kit to set up an American Express checking or debit account. With this account you will be able to set up direct deposits, pay bills online, and more. All you need to do is go to your local Walmart and purchase the kit for about $5. The Bluebird American Express account does not require a minimum balance,  charge overdraft fees, or charge monthly/annual fees.  There is a list available for viewing that shows you all the fees online which are seem to only be a fee to order checks along with ATM withdrawal fees. Everything else appear to be truly free or no charges. You will be provided with access to the official American Express Customer Service system 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
