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!

is there a limit to how much you can load on the temporary card?
what happens when the real card comes how do you transfer the
money from the temporary one?

Any way to split the payment when loading this card to make the $200 cards easier to load (like with bluebird)? Or does each card have to be a new transaction?

i don't have Serve or RedCard yet, but found out my local target carries it. Is it possible to sign up and get on this today or does it take a few days to get signed up for SERVE?

You can sign up and register the card today. You will be able to load $500 when you buy the card, and another $1000 after you register it online. Also, once you register the card online, you can withdraw up to $400 a day from the ATM.

After that you'll have to wait for the permanent card to come in the mail.
