Yesteday I wrote of the problem I had loading my Target Prepaid REDcard at a store in Brooklyn, NY.
At the Target Atlantic Terminal I asked to load $600 to my REDcard, splitting the amount among three cards. I was told that more than one debit card was not allowed when doing the load.
This was a bit of a surprise to me since I had heard or read nothing about this to date. (Target employees have had a hard times splitting debit loads since they didnt know how to do the transaction but I was never told no before.)
I figured that this was an issue related to this location (and possibly other local Targets) so I headed over to another store in Brooklyn yesterday.
I stopped in the Gateway Target at Erskine Street to see what would happen.
Rather than purchasing more Visa gift cards from Staples, I decided to just bring the two $200 cards that I had trouble loading the day before.
I waited for a few minutes on line before it was my turn.
I then asked to load $400 to my Target REDcard. As I handed over my card, I asked if she could split the payment, doing $200 each time.
The rep didn’t think much of it and went ahead with my transaction.
It looks like the one debit card rules only applies at the Target Atlantic Terminal store based on how my experience went at the Gateway store along with some comments from readers.
Hopefully Target continues to allow multiple debit card loads to REDcard and the issue I had remains a one store rule…
