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!

Visa? Yes

Does it make a difference if it's MetaBank or UsBank?

One more question, Im a N00b to Visa GC's, When I swipe to load on to Target prepaid, do I need a Pin, is it the last 4 digits of the card or do i need to get it somewhere?

No PIN needed. Run it as credit not debit.

Last 4
It depends on the card and is not always the last 4. These you run as credit and not debit.

Besides for the cashier, can those also be swiped at the Allpoint ATMs in the store?

The machine defaults them to debit (which is a good sign,  for when they stop allowing cc) so easier to just put in pin

You want cash from a VGC at an ATM?
