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!

What about getting 4k deposited into the redbird account from a friends bb account is that a trigger?

so i won :) the redcard from the ddsch, (thanks dan great job). i went to register it on line, and it tells me the card numbers dont match, checked three times to no avail. i put my DOB i just thinking that i might have to put the DOB that was put in when purchased.
do i have to put money on the card in-store before i register online?

i called up and the Indian lady tells me i have to fax in a whole list of stuff.

You have to first "buy" it in the store as I do not believe these cards were initially activated at the store.  That being said, you may now have a problem "buying" it since you attempted to register it online first.  Perhaps you should have just taken the UA amenity kit instead.   :)

You need to take it to Target and "purchase" it first. You can't register it before you buy it.

Not sure where you came up with that one.  Target in NY does not carry them.
