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!

Had anyone registered a RC recently and got asked identity verification questions from public record info, instead of having to upload documents?

Not personally but one of the people who bought the REDcard from me had this happen, he said he answered the questions and was approved instantly.

They basically want to make sure that an actual John Smith that lives at 123 street is applying for the Redcard, to prevent one person signing up for multiple cards, or people signing up with fake identities (money laundering) etc. I have 3 Redbirds, had family members help me out by signing up for the other two.

Is it a problem to say that I bought gift cards?
No
I had it denied once on arrival+ and rep just assumed it was GC and I went along with it although that was just 1k
GC sounds good because it makes sense to get a charge for even amouts
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Yes, but I think that gift cards can trigger a FR...

So tell them you loaded RC because you planned on spending a lot in target over the next few days and wanted to get 5% off

Okay time heeled it.  I just attempted a charge and it went through I guess it was denied for target 1k but it works fine now.  I just hope that no FR is on the way.

Again!  According the rules of RC on their website you CAN NOT  load with a cc.  So I don't think it's a good idea

I understand why they would require it. It's just that IME in the past, the only method of identity verification they had for both Serve and RC was to upload SS card and photo ID. Seems like this method is new, and much easier.

But they let you do it. They don't expect you to actually read the terms. Jeez, just suck it up and call already. We've all been through it. If you play the game it comes with risks, if you can't handle it stop playing

Idk why I feel like a criminal when I put money on the redcard. The guy at the register said "all done, should I swipe it again" while he was still holding the RC and I thought he was telling me that the card doesn't go through. then I just took it and left. You guys that have the balls to stay there and load 5 cards shokyach.
