Target Redcard credit card loads no longer supported?

  1. I never hopped on board with the Redcard. But I received an email from a travel hacking friend first thing yesterday morning. I could sense his tears through his tone in his email. At least now I don’t have to listen to him try to guilt me into participating anymore 🙂 While I just got the Chase Sapphire Preferred credit card to the sign-on bonus, the Redcard was too much out of my comfort zone. Plus no Targets near me to make the time worth it.

    1. Hi Fervent,

      The Chase Sapphire card was one of the cards that we used to manufacture spend through the Target Redcard, actually. Made everything super easy. But I agree that if you don’t have a Target near you, it makes very little sense for you to have looked into getting one.

      Your friend should keep in mind that there are other ways to utilize the Redcard to manufacture spend. It is true that the credit card load made it easy, but it certainly isn’t the only way.

    1. Yup, exactly. Though, I kinda get the feeling that Target specifically set it up this way to get more people on-board with the card with every intent to disallow the credit card loading capabilities at some point in the future. Well, I guess the future is now. 🙂
