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!

They asked me to send in ID and bill with address. I don't have a bill for that person at the address I gave. Any suggestions? Will they let me change the address I submited on application?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Again, unless they change the system of how its loaded, it shouldn't charge as Cash advance,
As on the receipt it says miscellaneous charge, so that's all that the cc company gets, and therefore they only will charge it as a regular target transaction,
Especially if you load say 986.96 instead of 1,000 it won't raise flags..

my wife has to meet $2k spend req on her Amex Everyday card. Got approved and activated the card 2 days ago . She was hit with FR 2 yrs ago and closed her SPG cards. Tried to apply last year but got hit with FR before she got approved.

I think FR is guaranteed if it is $500 or more Redbird load? If she gets hit with FR again, does she have to pay $57 something to send the tax docs and will take weeks to reopen her card?

Thanks
