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!

FYI I went to target the other day asked the cashier to fill up my card has no one behind me she knew what it is but she told me only cs can fill it I asked her to try she said she can't so I walked out.

Why not go to CS?
Yes cashiers can do, but there is such a great turnover rate with cashiers, some / most don't even know what the card is, they think we are paying a bill.
Just go str8 to CS. its really no big deal.

CS lines are usually very long,
Today a cashier told me to go to CS so I went on the next line found a cashier that had no clue what this is just told her swipe and did $2500 with 1 cc swipe another $2500 on my wife's card and 5 min later out with $5000 MS, gotta love red card as long as it lasts
