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!

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?
This may be obvious but are you certain you filled out all the bill pay correctly? I.e. did you choose chase credit card as your payee and then put in your cc#?
It sounds like you accidentally hit pay someone else and then put yourself as the payee and just typed in all your cc info there which is why they sent you a check to yourself.

Was I supposed to do business...?

Anyway to get multiple temporary cards on the same day? I read that you can change your social you enter by a number or two, would that work or no since they take ur ID as well?

Thnx

They don't check the SSN, so yes.

Yes. You go to pay bills add a payee and choose business. When you search for in the box that tells you to search for a business chase credit cards will come up. Follow the instructions and you'll be good to go.

Since its a registered business with redcard it will only ask for your acct # which is your cc # they will take care of the rest. Try it out and see if you still have more questions.  It should be pretty self explanatory once you see the steps.

As long as u dont use the same ss# they dont care. They scan license as many times as you want. all account info can be changed when you register.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Has anyone else received an error message when trying to register the card online:
"The card number and security code does not match. Please check your information and try again."

I've checked and retyped a few times, they definitely match.

EDIT: Purchased two cards from the same cashier, she scanned my ID twice and I entered the same personal information both times

Confirmed that you can buy more than one in the same store. I bought two with the same person. They scanned ID card but I put in different socials each time.
