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!

Thanks, I did. The wiki doesn't seem to have anything about what I see, but maybe it's the same thing

Just had an interesting experience at a Target.

The store i went to matches RC to CC and DL. After checking all three, the guy handed me back my DL and swiped my RC to load $1,000. He then swiped my CC and i signed the monitor, but the card only took off $0.46 and i had to pay with a different card. I called my CC company to see what the issue was and was told no charges were made that day. I checked the receipt and saw that the guy swiped my RC two times and it withdrew the $0.46 that was left on the card.

So aside from the manager being a bit incompetent, how does it work loading a RC with the same RC. Not that it accomplishes anything, but does it count towards your monthly limit?

Well for one, we see that you dont get 5% off!
