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!

My point was that when getting one from a different state it's better to get it unactivated and then go to your local target and activate it yourself.

yes to activate it has to be in a Target (bb can be done online).  prob has to be in a participating target.

Again I've never done it but I read in this thread that somoene was able to activate it in a Target in NJ (so a non participating one). That's why it makes sense for someone to pick one up in a participating target for you (unactivated) and then you can take care of the rest yourself.

+1
Many reports are that ANY target can activate it. Even those that do not sell the cards themselves.

Hi I just opened a red card in Baltimore (where its free) and loaded it with $500, then went home and registered it, I then went back tried 1,500, but it was to small  :-P, so I did $1,000
Than came back today. And the same message came up with the 1,500 but when they tried and other amount, it says can't process.. Contact csc...
Than I called costumer service, they said I can only add 1,000 b4 I get my real card..
Anyone know what's going on?
Is it my card or the location?
What's your plan for yud shvat?

Until you get the perm card you can load another 1000 but only 500 at a time

Just went to a target in NJ with my activated redcard and loaded it with 1000$ without any problem and then pulled out 400$ from ATM.
Wouldn't let me draw more because of the daily limit

Just tried to create account after buying a temp card . Did something funny and it says that they will send me an email to complete registration with some questions. 9hrs later still no email. Is that normal?

Yes call the number at the back of the card they will probably tell you to upload a image of your SS card and your drivers license
