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 registered it online with my siblings DOB & SS, but used my address as my sibling lives in Canada. Now Amex is asking me to upload proof of address but I have none in his name at the address I gave. Can I give them his Canadian address?
Do you have any choice? It sounds like giving the Canadian ID and address is the only option.

Two questions:
1) what's the suggested maximum amount that one can withdraw a month without risking getting the account closed?
2) if I'm trying to spend $1000 to get a bonus on an amex, will it count as meeting the spending amount?
3) if I load with an amex, will i get points as a transaction?
