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!

As stated earlier these T&Cs were issued before RedCard was launched.

OK they sent me checks. I just got it in the mail
It says on top of the check account #... (my credit card #)
Than it says pay to... (my name)
Do i now forward this check to the cc company (mail it to them)? Or just deposit it into my bank account?

So how does that translates to 'bill pay'?

How many checks did you receive?

Would they make a 50 check delivery like Bluebird does?

Why not just call them and find out what went wrong and what to do with the checks?

They were aware of the RC when the T&C's were written.

Well, I called to find out why it wasn't credited to my account.. The guy said it's in the mail..
I thought he didn't know what he was talking about so I decided to wait till I get the mail, and then if I didn't get it, call again..
But the real question is, is paying your own cc allowed?
