bulletplus1.png What designs can I get on my card?



bulletplus1.png Can I get more than one card signed up for my account?

For security reasons, only 1 card can be tied to any one League of Legends account.


bulletplus1.png Will signing up for and using this Card impact my credit rating?

No. This is a prepaid card it will not impact your credit rating/history.


bulletplus1.png Will this promotion be available outside of United States?

We’re sorry, but RP+ from American Express Serve is only available to U.S. residents at this time. Consequently, only the NA accounts are eligible for registration and RP rewards.


bulletplus1.png I already have a Serve account but it’s not Riot.

Unfortunately, if you are a current Serve Account holder, you cannot convert your current American Express Serve Account to RP+ at this time.


bulletplus1.png Something is wrong, I can’t sign up/register for the card!

Please hit up the helpful folks at American Express Serve Customer Support and they will help you out! You can reach them at 1-800-954-0559. 


bulletplus1.png Why haven’t I received my confirmation email/registration RP yet?

Once the sign-up process has been completed, your Serve account enters a “Pended” state. This means that your account is being reviewed for authenticity. It can take up to 6 days to verify your email address with Serve.

To check the current state of your account, log in to Serve. If it says “Your Account is being reviewed” at the top of the page after you log in, your account is currently “Pended”.

The RP will be credited to your account after it has un-pended.


bulletplus1.png Is there a fee for using a card?

As a part of the recent Serve re-launch, starting on December 3rd, there will be a $1 monthly fee for using the card. This fee will never create a negative balance on the card and Serve will offer a number of new benefits in addition to the current contract.
