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 think Dan said no

Yes, I think that Dan wrote that it will not count when he wrote up the REDcard info pro and cons in the DDMS article.

Figured that's what you were talking about, but

1) Doesn't "appear" isn't conclusive; and
2) AMEX Offers ≠ SBS

There we go. Thanks. I'll hold off until after SBS to make the switch.

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.

Just maxed out the Temp cards (only 3 work) 4th one will just have to wait until someone turns 18. :-) Got 1k max on each today. waiting for the permanent cards. Anyone know how long they take to get delivered? Also, any way to cash out before permanent card arrives? I guess this is where they get their money from, the float for a few days.  :P
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Thats how I'm rolling. Although I wouldn't be surprised if rc is sbs eligible. Terms were probably made before rc existed
