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!

T&C says that all participating Target stores or Amex can make up their own rules re:loading. So it is what it is.
Maybe we should call the number on the back of the card and ask when cc load will die. Or demand that the manager at junction or Atlantic be fired because they are making up policies that aren't in the T&C's.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

As many as they have in the store, as long as you have a different social for each.

No you can buy them all just put in other people's info (or random numbers for that matter).

Unless they're free in you're state, because then you can't buy them.

No don't worry. You can still clean out the store even if they're free.
