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!

PSA: Regarding the redbird email from target/amex last night.
They are offering to open sub-accounts and get cards for family members.
These cards aren't loadable and the Parent Account does not receive an increase in Loadable $ allowed.
I HUCA'd a couple of times, No more then 100k/year Total  - 50k/Year 'Cash' Load.

Can you make the initial registration on a temp card in Nj?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Go to a computer and register this temporary card.  You can register it to any SS#., regardless of which # you used when buying the temporary card.
They send you a permanent REDcard. (hereafter also known as a RedBird.)
You load these at Target directly with a cc. ( No GCs needed.  )

3) if answer to 2 is yes then is that when i load it?
See above
In the spirit of trying to be nice to n00bs asking questions that are answered I will attempt to point you to the answers.

Just heard rumblings that cc load will end this week. Anyone hear anything of the sort? CS says they keep changing their mind over it.

Heaven forbid!!! Have a friend who was just informed in store when he went to load. They only allowed him 2k instead of 2500 and told him that it may be cash or debit only. This is NY so i dont know how they would even be informed as they dont sell these in NY. The story is suspect but the source is reliable.

Please guys...a little more credit than that. Never call until a good thing is over. Even a relative n00b like me know that. I did read the basics before I dove head first into the game

So your reliable source is reporting unreliable information?  :)
