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!

Some stores are having technical problems activating them in store. Can I get one from one of those stores and activate it later?

I called the stores in Greensboro, NC, prior to making the 90 min drive to go pick some up. Turns out they have been having technical difficulties processing the RedCards in all the Greensboro area stores since October 5th, and they aren't selling any. Oh well. I guess it's good I called first :)

You In high point?

When activating a card for someone else. Do they activate it under their own name and ssn, or under the name of the person and ssn it's intended for? tia
