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'm happy it's a show roll out I'm getting to teach multiple cashiers how to do it before they get overwhelmed.

So I received the card from a friend yesterday.  Registered it online.
Today I went to target in LA.  The cashier asked her manager for help.  The manager got all excited,  said I was the first customer she saw that has it. Showed it to all the nearby cashiers so they would recognize it.  Asked where I got it from because she really wants one....
She said she heard that it should be coming to California in a month or so.
Loaded cc and then gc.
Only issue was that the second cashier asked the same manager for help and she told me I can only do 1k a day,  so I couldn't do the full 1.5k.
Something doesn't make sense,
Was it the temp card?
You can only load $1,000 after it was registered,
B4 it was registered you can do 500

That's not what 'ganizzy' said, and others, people are reporting that target only allowed $1,000 a day

is there a limit on the temporary card?

Yes, $500 then $1,000

You can only load $1,000 after it was registered,
B4 it was registered you can do 500
I initially loaded 400 on the temp card.  Then wanted to do an additional 1k but manager limited me to 1k total

You registered the card online after you activated and put $400 while in the store, and then wanted to ad an additional $1,000 and the guy only let $600??

Don't rely on phone reps
Your referring to the fact that one can do more than 1,000 a day?
It says so online

Target Reps
I'm not, don't worry, I went into the store and 2.5+
But the question is, where is the 1,000 limit coming from?
Is it going to be the policy soon...?
