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!

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

Can this only be registered with a drivers license?

when I called and asked if a 19 yr old doesn't have a license but he has a passport,
they said that will work for Target. They just swiped my license when I went last week but the cs said that they may need to manually enter the info from a passport or a gov't issued ID.

when you purchase it it prompts for a DL. But when you register it, you can use any name , birthday and SS#.

true he wrote 'registering', however maybe avrumy22 was referring to buying the card in target with a DL in the first place.

it works, but the question is how far we can get if we still have a bb acct. Do they know it when scanning in target?
not only did I have to cancel my bb acct, i needed to send out the $3 remaining balance and that had to first be accepted/withdrawn before the bb could be cancelled.
