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 was responding to the AFT comments. I quote the part of the posts that make sense.  :)

I realize I quoted the wrong post. It should be as follows:

This card is garbage. Glad I have not been using it for a few years.

These comments are really tiresome, especially for those who have used the Redbird to get their feet wet in the whole MS game.

By any objective measure, being able to MS $360K/year with $0 out of pocket costs and very little risk is a boon not a bust.

Anyone doing more than that, at a higher return and/or lower cost, is the 1% of this game.

"Hey, because you can't be First Team All American, kid, better stop rocking out Division I basketball... after all, at the very best, you'll end up making millions of dollars in the NBA."

Does that clarify?

Any recent visits to anyone to a miami target that is being easy with loading multiple cards with $2500 each?
 I wouldn't usualy be busy with this on vacation but brooklyn targets have gotten so difficult that if I could load $2500x4 cards in one trip I would do it

Anything that can't be loaded on RC or (AFT)?

AFAIK, there's nothing that can't be loaded onto RC. It's processed as a regular purchase.
