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!

I just loaded in Howell at CS (to avoid line at register). I was told that name on cc has to match name on redcard.

In Baltimore, they ask for ID but don't care if it matches. So strange. In fact,  when I show them the gc, they say "oh forget about it"

I once had that and before the cashier got too far i offered my id that matched the cc and had no problem
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Last night I went to target and loaded. Np. Didn't ask for ID. But some registers were making up a rule that you can only register one card, others didn't care and let me register more. I loaded my card and my mom's card w/ no ID needed.

Asking for ID is always a YMMV,
this morn in Nanuet they didnt, this evening they did. Thats why I posted it...As a PSA

ID should be mandatory for CC use. Matching RC to CC shouldn't. It makes sense that a person charging thousands of dollars should have to show ID that he/she is the card holder or an AU. Why are people so surprised when they ask for ID?
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Just a note: Had the load issue tonight again. Loaded $500, my credit card was approved and charged but did not load onto my redcard. Called up Redcard, they opened a case, and told me to dispute my CC so I wouldn't need to pay the $500. Done and Done.

My other 5 swipes went perfectly.

So the RC reps weren't surprised about CC payments?

looks like they are out to get you, so how about you take one for the team and stop loading and having to do these disputes! 8)

Never. As long as I have a few success, a 4 minute phone call to dispute the charge is worth it.
