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!

Can u pay an Amex cc bill from your red card account?  will that cause u to get shut down? Or f/r? Don't they see u just charged your cc onto a red card and now using those funds to pay the cc?
if youre worried, send the money to your bank account and then pay it

I did it 2 days ago and it was no problem. I also switch it up and send some funds back to my bank account and pay some from my redbird account. I also like using non-round numbers. 1950 from one account and the balance from another...

when sending the money to my bank I am worried about raising eyes to the IRS if I charge 10k onto 2 red cards a month over the course of the year there is a 120k going in and out of my account!!!

Anyone have experience in disputing a check? I did it for one just to get confirmation that the receiver received the check....

No worries.

Not planning on doing $200's there, but wouldn't want to ruin a good spot.

If I have my bank account set as backup funding for Redcard purchases would it work for redcard subaccount cards too?

Reloaded again today. Started keeping track of how long it takes to reload. Today was 17 seconds! ;D Love the ultra friendly folks at my local Target! Much nicer than the morons working down the street at Walmart. ::)
