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!

Old news...
how is it old news?

I used get 5% of when paid with Target GC and 1 cent with Red card until few months ago but I was still getting free shipping with no minimum when paid with GC and 1 cent with Red card until just last week.

Is the Red Prepaid card now totally useless unless you pay in full with that card without using  target GC?

Is the Red debit better?  if yes how so? Thank you

Why buy a prepaid card? You can get one of the other REDcard flavors for free to get 5% off.

If a charge is declined on a red card how long does it take to disappear and reopen the credit line?

Farewell to the good old days with the TRC, was by far the easiest to ms.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
