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!

Was it the temporary card? Did your CC get flagged for fraud?

No the credit card was fine. The machine wouldn't even let her swipe the Red card again

when they scan the red to reload, it says check Id, but that is to match it to the cc not the red, as why would they care who's card you load, remember there is a pin to take out cash..
-1 When you reload it doesn't ask for ID, only when you activate the first time.

I was asked a couple of times
The 1st time she saw it, she didn't understand, the card didn't yet have my name on it.. So I suggested that its to match with the cc, she asked he's manager to "confirm" and she agreed,
But not every time did they ask, sometimes yes sometimes no
What's your plan for yud shvat?

You wrote that the machine says check ID and I was just pointing out that is not the case. Can they technically ask for ID? Yes.

Awaiting my permanent card, loaded my temp in NYC without a problem (H/T noturbizness). If this is OT, kindly direct me to the right place; looking for background on how best to unload the card and triggers (e.g. - loading an SP to RED, unloading to Chase Checking and paying SP seems imprudent). TIA!

Is it possible to reload a amex prepaid Redcard using a target visa credit card or target debt card. Thereby earn 5% for every dollar of manufactured spend (best part there would be no cap)?

No. Is stated upthread that if you use the Visa CC you do not get the 5% off.

Was able to load something on my temporary  card but the ATM in target store was chase ATM and shows limit of $400.  I couldn't  withdraw anything  and I am sure  it would  have  charged  me fee. Can I withdraw  from the temporary  card?
