lets get out there locust. move to that next field of plentiful food and strip it bare. I know you can do with the help of your “friendly” bloggers. Lets descend on that next deal and kill it in a week. Awesome game plan. Because as you know, “There will always be another deal right around the corner” until there isnt.

just got this in email about Redbird, (look at the bottom of this message, it says reload with debit card is still valid)

Hello ——————–,

We want to let you know about some changes to the terms and conditions of your Prepaid REDcard® by American Express Account:

• Funding & Transfers
As of October 28, you will not be able to link a new bank account to your Prepaid REDcard Account to add money. However, you will still be able to transfer money out of your Prepaid REDcard Account to a bank account.

If you currently have a linked bank account, nothing will change – you’ll still be able to add money from that account.

You can continue to easily add money through Direct Deposit, Debit Card, and Cash Reloads at any U.S. Target store.1
