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!

Thats where i was, figured it was a huca situation. The manager said they have a "new memo stating no more credit cards"
I went to the one by barclays center and it was fine

From what I heard is that its a dont ask dont tell policy. You walk in and tell them "I'd like to load this card" and thats it. If they have issues tell them to follow the prompts on the screen. Do not ask for a manager. They make up the rules. There is no memo.
