I think in the BB thread, someone tried it, their bank applied the funds, and then two days later deducted it again, citing that BB disallowed the transaction or something similar to that. So you won't notice a problem with the initial transaction, but it'll get reversed later on, and you could be out a late fee or something.

Has anybody established DD with Target AMEX using ACH push from a bank account of Paypal? When i transferred a few bucks (or even trial deposits) with BB, they're listed as DD on BB's website. But trial deposits show up as "value load" on Target AMEX's website, same as deposits from within the Target store. DD will increase max balance to $10K, which is huge!

Those of you who have set up for online access for Target Amex, were you able to use existing Amex ID and password to link Target Amex (like the blue Prepaid Amex)? Or had to create new one?

I tried using existing ID, but after I enter in Target Amex info, it spat out Error 404 page. First call technical support said would work and to wait till ID verified. Second call rep said ID verified but technical support said cannot use same ID....???

I don't have permanent card yet, maybe I should wait for that? Is 4-digit code on temp card same as on permanent card?

I have the permanent Target AMEX as well as the BB AMEX, and both have separate log in names. Not sure why. So I have 3 AMEX log ins-- the main one (including AMEX prepaid), BB, Target.

I know BB requires its own since it has its own domain.

Did you try putting Target Amex in your main Amex login ID before creating a new one for it?

Amex Prepaid works with main, I don't see why Target shouldn't.

I did; it didn't work. Maybe if I tried harder, it would've worked, I don't know. But I have my new log-in and I've had no issues with it.

Hmm hmm ok thanks! I just wasn't sure which technical support guy was right. Not the end of the world but I would rather not have to create a new one.

Yeah, I tried a Paypal transfer and it's just listed as a 'value load' which is the same as if I load it via Target store.
