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!

Can this only be registered with a drivers license?

Can this only be registered with a drivers license?

when I called and asked if a 19 yr old doesn't have a license but he has a passport,
they said that will work for Target. They just swiped my license when I went last week but the cs said that they may need to manually enter the info from a passport or a gov't issued ID.

when you purchase it it prompts for a DL. But when you register it, you can use any name , birthday and SS#.

true he wrote 'registering', however maybe avrumy22 was referring to buying the card in target with a DL in the first place.

it works, but the question is how far we can get if we still have a bb acct. Do they know it when scanning in target?
not only did I have to cancel my bb acct, i needed to send out the $3 remaining balance and that had to first be accepted/withdrawn before the bb could be cancelled.

I purchased it while having an active Serve acct. Went home and registered it in someone elser's name. More than once.
So did Dan IIRC.

that's good. so your acct showed a $500 balance when you registered it online? And then at home you could write in the other person -- that's good. let's pray that they keep the cc loads alive.
