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!

Did anyone try loading the prepaid red from a red credit card and getting 5% off? As in only paying $950 for the $1,000?
risk of CA? Maybe the red DC..

True, it also doesn't say one can use a regular credit card.. It only says debit...

Why would it say that, if it only says you can use debit, doesn't really mention credit..?

Does the initial 500 load, and loads made on the temp card go towards the $5000 monthly limit?

FWIU, the initial 500 does not, but subsequent loads on the temp card do.

Didn't work with Amex Target prepaid (old one) so it probably won't work for this either.

Lady at target told me she had about a dozen ppl come in with these cards and everyone kne how to use them better then the store employees!! I just smiled. She said "see u tomorrow ".

Alol 8)
I was loading this morning in a store that actually sells them (and the racks were full ) and the lady at customer service thought only 500 could be loaded, so I told her that 1000 works
