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 could buy from a DDFer or on ebay

Such as?
He sends unactivated unopened red cards...
Maybe not what Target wants but what issues can arise?
It is the same as someone giving them out for free.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Is there still no way to get one of these without driving/flying a long way if you live in the NYC area? I actually could go to Boston and North Carolina for work but the Targets aren't very close to any of the locations so I'd have to rent a car and drive all the way over.
Trade some lounge passes or something for one

Thinking of getting this but just wanted to confirm that if the card is registered in one name/SS# that you can load it with a cc with a diff name (e.g, my cc, husband's name/cc).
