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!

It actually does say that it's 5.95 + 1 shipping if you click on "product information".

But don't believe everything you read on the internet.

The $1500 load on temporary card counts towards the total $5k monthly limit when you get the permanent card? Or it is $5k monthly limit when you have the permanent card?

thank you  :)


Unbelievable! Unbelievable Frustrating  experience with US bank CC visa card with load.

I attempt the load, gets blocked. Receive text asking me to 1  for yes if I did it and get confirmation text saying card is good to go. I try loading again, wouldn't work. I called the Fraud dept line and the wait to get an agent was running longer than 20 mins, hung up,  called again while in store and no one picks up.
I left the store, called Fraud line again, asked and spoke with supervisor, made complaint. They apologized and got a customer support manager to give me some points  answered  some questions and Fraud dept supervisor told me I am all good. I drive back and still couldn't load. called fraud line and you can't get an agent to help you since the hold was for ever. I get home and spoke to Fraud rep supervisor  and he tells me the previous rep didn't do the over ride or whatever she has to do and he asks me questions and tells me this time you will not face the trouble again.

I have had to deal with these with Chase and Citi but  never like this with US bank .

The money you load when purchasing the card is not part of the $5000. Everything else is.

PSA: Target in Queens Center Mall is unable to do loads for at least a week, they are having problems with their system, It will display "contact CSE' I contacted amex and they confirmed the problem. (I have done loads there in the past w/o problems.)

Should work. that's the limit. Maybe it was your credit card being declined?

PSA: Target in Atlantic mall: nice cashier. no problem loading a RedCard not in my name. 1K, 1K,.5K. She didn't look at the cc's - asked me to read her the last 4 digits.  Success!

Thanks for this. Once I get my red card next week this is where I'll be going. Right near my office. Thanks!
