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!

gonna be driving out to WI from Chicago to get this card today.  Yet to find the nearest Target in WI here they carry this. Please give me a tip on how to get this.

go to cashier , look at the rack, pick up one, tell the cashier you want to buy and load? Do they ask for my ID? and SS and address? can't buy one for my sister?
Thanks

You'll need your SS#, but it can later be registered in someone else's #. There's a limit to how many you can buy in a day. (It may be 1)

My wife is going to Detroit in a few weeks. If she picks up one for me, can she activate it there without physically possessing my driver's license?

She has to put in "a" drivers license. it doesn't make a diff who's. But then she can add your social or what ever other info they ask for.
Can always be changed when registering the card,

Yes,
Or you can just activate it yourself in your local Target store.

Sorry.
So she can put in her social once. and yours the next time. 
The social and the drivers licence do not need to match

Someone mentioned that there are targets near Boston that have this card but when I looked at the stores listed on the website none seemed close to Boston. Anyone know if any targets near Boston carry this card?

will go to two stores, buy  both using my own name, social and address?
Once at home, I can register one for my sister in her name?

If they don't check ID, I can put her info directly  in the store when buying.
