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!

The card thats being handeled yetzt is the american express prepaid redcard. This is not a card that can be singed (or signed for that matter) up for online rather only purchased in a participating target store. Uber hub nisht kain moireh i made the same exact mistake.

Thanks, so the nafka minah between the prepaid redcard and the AFT seems to be the fees.

I have somebody in MD picking up a RedCard for me. Are they meant to activate it? Does that mean it's under their name? Can they take it without activating it? In short...How does it work? :)

since u can load with CC's and GC's
is it safe to assume AGC's can be loaded as well?

http://www.thebreakroom.org/index.php?threads/prepaid-redcards.9382/ read the third part it seems to be that the loading by credit card is not officially supposed to happen the question is if it's a mistake or are they just waiting to get it rolling and then they will block CC's (Chas veshalom).
Also if you read more some of them seem to think you can use it out of target did anyone else know this? Is it true?
ETA: a good point is that no one on those forums is mentioning that people are using it for spending thresholds.
