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!

umm, that's what everyone is doing

Well, from what I am reading one can definitely do things a bit different. Like leaving some money on, actually do some shopping with the RB at Target etc.
Work hard, Play harder!

That's not what I'm doing. I don't pay bills or withdraw the money immediately after loading it, in the same amounts that I loaded. I also try to load in more random amounts than $1,000 and $500.

I have a feeling that things are about to end, there is no better sign than this closure
Not necessarily-look at the comments there at the guy who said he does 750$ loads. It's more of an issue with keeping on loading same amounts IMO.

If you load the money in and then wait and then you get shut down you're in hot water with getting your money back.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

That would be me  >:(. However note the explanation for closure-Section 15E-which actually doesn't exist in the T&C's. Go figure.

That's a bummer... What amounts did you typically load? How quickly did you takeout the funds? how did you load the card?

Ya your right for some reason I remember that as D and I thought there wasn't any E-but either way that's not a reason or explanation of what I violated just a way of saying "well do what we want".

if the worst case scenario is they shut u down and cant load anymore, not so bad
but how can they abscond with your funds. that will make me worried going to target now
