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!

So your reliable source is reporting unreliable information?  :)
Pretty much the case.

I would like to make the initial in-store activation in NJ today. Can I give totally make up info in the store? Can I use a social that already had BB (and change it when registering online)? Do they ask for ID?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

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
That's why I asked. I didn't jump on you cuz I hoped your were smart enough not to call

They scanned my dl and it pulled my info. I know I could have changed it, not sure if they checked again after. Don't think they did.

They will ask for ID when u register. U dont need to give ur ss# or DOB but whatever DOB u use will be required when u register for perm card.

You can't use a different DOB when you register online? So the initial date if birth has to match the social I'm going to use online?

Just to log in DOB has to match what u registered. After that u can change to match ss#. If those dont match then they will not register u without sending in ss card and other addl documents.

Gotchya.. But technically you can still register the card without putting in that registered date of birth
