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!

How many reports have you seen at FT? The first poster is a troll and is part of a MS group that puts out miss information.
I hear I have no idea about that. But I saw at least one other guy say it a few pages down.

Here is the full text of my RC emails. Compare them to the FT one. Keep in mind again that the chargebackwas only on one and that the 2 were under different names. They're compressed hopefully they'll be clear enough.

Why is it when you go to read the prepaid red card terms and conditions, there is no section 15 E?
There are only A-D for section 15. Leads me to believe more and more this is a hoax.

Yes that's what I said before there's no E. But Serve T&C's have E which somebody mentioned before.

I'm also uncertain about the shutdowns, but the Serve T&C do have a section 15(e). Could be that they're all the same internally, maybe.

As you can see above even CM has come around because he says he knows a guy who posted in FT. So you can believe all you want. I'm telling you mine are real. First off if they were fake I would've made them both the same. Second off I have better things to do than make up emails like that. Of course mine were not shut down over target loads but you can still examine the emails and see that the FT ones are identical to mine.

Why would they use a section that does not exist for the product at hand? So if Serve has a section 15 E, that should only apply to that product.

Have you considered calling (I know never call) and just mention your account was shut down for being in violation of a policy that does not even exist? I would think AMEX would be smarter than to use a section from another product unless all three products (BB/Serve/Red Card) have the exact same T&C, word for word.

RedCard's website is Amex.serve.com/prepaidredcard, so maybe the T&C's on serve.com should apply to RedCard as well.

So after reading the Serve T&C section 15 E, it still does not make any sense (mind you, I am not smart  :P )

But section 15 E just mentions it is their right to shut you down.
The email states you are in violation of section 15 E.
How can you be in violation of their right to shut you down?

Wouldn't they say something to the affect that they are invoking Section 15 E to close your account?
