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
How long did u wait? because I just did that today
If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill

I was the one who told u that. I always do 2k. I thought it was funny how she didn't let me swiper for 2k
In your neck of the woods do Rite Aid and Walgreens swipe ID, if not it's time to make some friends there...
Many cashiers/store managers say many funny things, (the best of course would be, Let's try and see if system lets)...

FYI I just tried paying a bill from one of my Redcards but kept on getting an error message. I called the 800 number and was told to change the phone number in my profile. It seems 2 redcards having the same phone number can cause a system error. Has anyone had the same experience?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Plenty of reasons. Certain cash back cards give bonuses at pharmacy

I've heard of it. You cant have the same number on 2 accounts.
Why dont you just change the number?

Thats exactly what I did. Just never heard of that before.
Yup. See the wiki
Don't see it in Wiki. Aderaba, probably a good idea to add it.

Under 'Notes & Technical Issues:' see #2.
But you're excused from not seeing it.  The wiki is gigantic, and most of it needs to be there.

Arrrggggg.  the Target in Monsey (spring Valley) was so good, they always allowed me to do a many swipes as I wanted by customer service with out a problem, (sometime at registers as well).
Now they make you go to CS & CS calls a manger who only allows 1 swipe of $1k with matching Id/CC/Redcard. She told me that your allowed $2500 but store policy only allows $1000. Oh Well I Guess I see allot of target visits in my future.

Not sure that going from 2 trips to 5 trips per month per card is that terrible. Still works for me. Once they make it  a $500/day itll start getting annoying. But then Ill start crying in the appropriate thread
