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!

I tried sending myself a check through rc bill pay it never came I called and asked them what happened and they said the name on the check can't match the name on the account. I guess the next best way is to withdrawal funds straight to ur account

Or just pay off the cc directly with the rc?

I used to get many fraud alerts when loading 10k  today I did different,  I didn't  swipe 1k 1k 500, I rather did $321.21 and then $678.79 it took longer but at least I wanna so busy with the fraud alerts I just got 1 alerts,  but if you want to do it don't start to think at the cashier the amount and then take your calculator,  come with the ready amounts,  because otherwise the cashier will send you away.
