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!

You can't have 4 different account numbers for same bank account.
Sure you can. I am not in a spoonfeeding mood tonight so don't ask.

Also why are people using bill pay instead of just transferring to bank and then pay?
I would assume to have less 'traffic' in the back account?!?

You should stick to what you know so you don't look so foolish. Your lack of knowledge on this subject explains all your n00b questions and comments.

Pay with one account you have been paying for months or yrs. Don't keep changing the chase cards bill payment source.

Chase shuts down accounts for many reasons and paying bills from difference sources or accounts is one of them. For example If you pay bill from chase checking this time, than with serve or blue bird of someone  the next time,  than   paying from CITI bank checking another time, than from BOA checking another time. If you keep paying from different sources like the example given above, it is suspicious, abnormal behavior for them and your account risks closure!
 Chase also doesn't like checking account deposits from many source.  If they close your checking, your cards will also be closed

If you love  your chase cards and want to keep them, you should not do these. try and use a different checking like TCF or any othe checking or  even your local small branch.
To summarize, Chase likes consistancy with your payments.
Q:What about accounts in my name, at Chase checking, Serve or BB, Citi checking, BOA checking, etc.  If the accounts are all in the same name as the cc account,  Does that pose a problem? Does Chase get nervous and shut sown accounts for that?

I don't know many things  that's why I ask NOOB questions but on this I think you are incorrect  but  You could have ended this by explaining  how you can have multiple bank account numbers with same bank account ! Anyway, I will end this here! :)
