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!

it would work but since many are cracking down, i wouldn't do it. i have had bad experience with these
Tell us more. I plan on loading with amex CG's at Atlantic, since they dont do cc, I figured It would be easier.

yes please. If they stopped taking cc would it be easier to use gc? They would most likely stop taking them as well.

cashier, black, fake eyebrows. CS took over once she made a scene and didnt let me use VGC either. Twas the last day of the month and I had 2+k in GC to get rid of so I hung around. My persistence paid off and founf a rookie to do the everything I wanted... until I got slammed by fraud alerts
How'd you get fraud alerts on gc?

Even after calling Chase Fraud Services and telling them to expect 15k in purchases at Target over the next couple of months, my card STILL got a FA last night after loading one card (2.5k). WTF else can I do to avoid these things? Stop getting new cards? LOL

Sure. Because you specifically called in before hand for this reason.
