I loaded my Redbird Target card twice now, since the “big scare” of the new load procedure and program update at Target. I live in Florida and both times, the latest today, July 4th, there has been no change at all in the load procedures. Same method, quick and easy. No problems at all. Just reporting from the hot south.


Great to see you make a living at doing this. How many readers do you have? BTW the mall store is now carrying biz cards for $1k for $3.95. Pretty painless way to get Redbirds loaded
