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 also have 4 free additional users on my Serve account and Serve cards qualify for Small Business Saturday. REDcard doesn’t appear to be eligible for AMEX Offers promotions."

Figured that's what you were talking about, but

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

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

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

I registered on a Friday afternoon, and got the card a week and a half later on Tuesday.

If you've maxed out your BB during the month, then cancel and activate RC, can you load an additional $5k?

ATM works quite well. Found an allpoint ATM at Shoprite. $400 max. Will try and find another one locally. PITA but works for now.

Can I use the account and routing number I have for my RC, to make a cc payment, or I need to send a bill payment?

that one. If you use the routing number and account number it won't go through and you'll get a returned payment fee (same as serve http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=6437.msg958376#msg958376)
