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!

Interestingly, now that I've been poking around RC's T&C, it seems that Amex intended to include non-cash sources in their definition of cash. From Section 5(b)(4):

Quote
You may add funds to your Account by (i) presenting cash (US currency only) or other accepted tender and your Card at participating Target stores in the U.S. or (ii) using other cash funding sources and methods accepted by us from time to time (collectively, "Cash Funding Sources").

To add funds to your Account with cash or other accepted tender at a participating Target store in the U.S., present your activated Card and the amount of cash or other accepted tender you want to add to your Account to the cashier. To find a participating Target location, visit the Prepaid REDcard Site. Cash loads are subject to your Account transaction limits and such other restrictions we may add to this feature from time to time.

We reserve the right to delay the availability of funds added to your Account from any Cash Funding Source until such funds have cleared and posted to your Account, although such funds will generally post within thirty (30) minutes of the funding transaction. We and participating Target stores in the U.S. may change accepted tender types and funding methods for the Account at any time for legal, risk management, security or other purposes. In addition, your ability to add funds from any Cash Funding Source is also subject to the transaction limits on your Account related to adding funds (visit the Prepaid REDcard Site or contact us to find out what those transaction limits are).

Please note: Cash Funding Sources are services and products provided by third parties. Even though we allow the use of these Cash Funding Sources to add money to your Account, we do not provide these services or products and are not responsible for any service issues that arise with them. Use of a Cash Funding Source is subject to the terms and conditions established by the provider of the Cash Funding Source.

When you attempt to add money to your Account via a Cash Funding Source, we will notify you via e-mail when the transaction is completed successfully. You may also view any approved transactions by logging into your Account on the Prepaid REDcard Site.

Not all of us actually read the t and c when signing up for things. I'm just surprised no one has mentioned this whenever they get fearful that credit card load are somehow a system oversight, albeit one amex is fully aware of.

Maybe for red it was. It wasn't the case for bb/serve. I can't remember when I noticed the change in their terms.

BB/Serve you don't load at Target. AFT has always been this way for years.

T&C says that all participating Target stores or Amex can make up their own rules re:loading. So it is what it is.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
