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!

I'll know if I can get more within the next 48 hrs.

If so, can send. (They are the $0 cards.)
Please don't send me one.
I just found a new supply of forks!

If I register the REDcard in someone else's name and ID# will I be able to transfer the funds to MY bank account or do the names have to match exactly?  I haven't seen this addressed in this thread yet.

Look at the target redcard site and it will list the locations that carry the cards...

On eBay you can get it with 2 counteroffers for around $40 start at $30 or less and slowly go up $5 at a time...
