I had a problem with redbird yesterday and would like your thoughts. I bought a vanilla gift card from Office Depot and it wouldn’t load onto my redbird at target and I tried multiple counters. However, it worked for a visa gift card from staples. I hadn’t heard anything on vanilla visas not working at target so is this probably a fluke?


Update. I decided to try again and it loaded fine. So hopefully it was a one time fluke!
