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!

That is very interesting logic but I have a better one for you. I will show you how to net 50k in one year playing these games and you give me 25k. Lot better than this stupid RedCard don't you think?

It seems Chase cards work with this but can you load with an AMEX on the Prepaid card? Or does that show up as a cash advance?

Can you pay a credit card with a different name? Can you send money to a Bluebird account?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Avraham's CC can load Yitzchok's Redcard. They may ask avraham for ID.

IME Avraham's Redcard can pay Yitzchok's mortgage. I don't think paying a CC would be different.
