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!

waiting for the permanent cards. Anyone know how long they take to get delivered? Also, any way to cash out before permanent card arrives? I guess this is where they get their money from, the float for a few days.  :P

I registered on a Friday afternoon, and got the card a week and a half later on Tuesday.

If you've maxed out your BB during the month, then cancel and activate RC, can you load an additional $5k?

I believe atm works
ATM works quite well. Found an allpoint ATM at Shoprite. $400 max. Will try and find another one locally. PITA but works for now.

Can I use the account and routing number I have for my RC, to make a cc payment, or I need to send a bill payment?

that one. If you use the routing number and account number it won't go through and you'll get a returned payment fee (same as serve http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=6437.msg958376#msg958376)

Well card number 4 came online today. Off to make the initial deposit. Used allpoint ATM to cash out some yesterday. Only allowed me $400 per card. Tried a different location a few hours later and it still wouldnt allow more. Tried same machine this morning and it didnt work either. Will try again tonight to see if it is a 24 hour vs calendar day difference.

I've been sidelined by bad credit and/or no credit for way too long. Finally found an opening and I'm riding it until the cows come home. Amex still owes me 125k miles they took when they cancelled me 6 years ago. Lets not discuss what I owe them. :P

Guess I'm making up for lost time and missing all other churning opportunities. We shall see how long this cc loading lasts.
