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!

Didn't work with Amex Target prepaid (old one) so it probably won't work for this either.
it may, in this case, with the initial prepaid purchase because it comes up as a purchase alongside my regular target purchases at the cashier.

Thanks. Anybody have some 'datapoints' on this? I'm trying not to annoy the cashiers.

The permanent REDcard had been funded with $500 initially, $1,000 on Wednesday after being registered, and $2,500 last night when the permanent version came. Today I was able to load it with another $1,500 in 2 transactions, bringing the total load to $5,500. The initial load didnít count towards the $5K monthly limit,

Just wanted to point out, that if you are using GC's to load please enter the PIN and use as debit.
The less it costs Target the longer this might last.

(Debit transactions are significantly cheaper than credit)
