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!

Seems like people have done/do it, but can be a cause for shutdown.

Not worth it IMHO.

Not worth it. Most of the time they require you to verify the bank account by uploading a bank statement, if it's not the same name as on the RedCard, you will have major issues.

Can a OneVanilla be loaded onto a RC?
you may be asked for ID that matches both the RC and the GC

Just transfer the amount needed from their RC to yours (online) - it's a breeze, only email address needed. Then withdraw to your bank account. Takes some more time but that's the best way to do it AFAIK.

When cancelling a BB and then opening a Redcard it been mentioned to use a different email address. After the account is opened can I switch to the original email address?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.
