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!

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.

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)

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.

Figured I'd max out my PRG 30k bonus first then on to growing my SPG account until I get my Everyday card...then the fun begins.

I scheduled a payment to my cc, it said that payment will be applied on the 6th
It is currently 9:30 PM. And my cc was not credited they officially stand behind the date that there will be no late payments...
Anyone had this issue?

In total? Per transaction? Per month?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Lucky you. I know my parents and in laws would not want to do it since it requires their ssn. Yes, no hard pull, but they can be like that. Somehow I doubt I could register my 4 year old.
