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!

All amex or any cc sees is target. They don't see what your purchases actually are.
I don't think that's true. Sometimes it even reflects on your statements.

If I reload a card and get groceries and school supplies, your telling me that you believe the CC companies can see everything I bought?

Not sure what level 3 data is, but why wouldn't they get that from Target?
