Since October 12, 2015, the prepaid REDcard (Redbird) can only be loaded at Target with cash. It can still be loaded online with a bank-issued debit card, up to $200/day and $1K/month.

Therefore, for MS (manufactured spending) Redbird is now considered dead. RIP!

Why not just get a debit card?

why bother with requirements such as minimum balances, daily limits and debit card fees when the red prepaid has none?

I dont even know cash loading works at target location. The last time i loaded was 2 years ago with credit card.

You can connect a debit card.
And it will automatically load from it when you make a purchase.

it deducts 1 cent on all my onlin orders  after gift card is applied. My $30 lasted for  almost  16 months. Does the debit card has fees and requirements like regular bank checking account?

I do that too. The problem is that the max daily load is $200. So if you have no balance on the card account and make a $200+ purchase at target the card doesn't go through. Happened a few times until I realized the reason. And it's those big purchases that I especially want the 5% off.

No its just a debit card that's linked to an existing checking account from any bank. It pulls money out as you use the debit card.

In store, all you need is a check from the account you want to link it to.  You may be able to do it online also I'm not sure.

Wow.  Where did this thread come from?

At least no one can accuse peace123 of not using the search function.
