Did anybody try to use Target Visa card (that earns 5% cash back for Target purchases) to load Amex for Target? I am wondering if it works since $50 is a good cash back for each load.

Curious about this as well. From personal experience, I know it allows you to pay the $3 load fee with your Target Visa, bringing the fee down to $2.85.

Using Target GC or Target Debit/CC to fund the Target Amex.

During lunch today, I went the Atlantic Terminal Target location to load some Visa gift cards to my Target prepaid card. When the cashier saw that I was about to swipe a gift card, she told me it was not allowed, only credit or debit. She then called over a manager who said that it was a company policy not to accept gift cards for reloads. Has anyone else experienced this recently?

Sorry to ask this question as I am new to this thread. Can we still use Amex GC to load the Target card? It seems that some people have trouble doing this. If so, we will need to use Visa and MC gift cards, but where can we get them for a discount? Cheers and sorry if this has been discussed before.

Using gift cards (Visa/MC/Amex) to load target AMEX is mostly a hit or a miss situation. Some cashiers do it and some don't. If someone doesn't allow me to do it, I just move on and try another time.
We all know for sure that there is no restriction from the POS system, it's just the cashier/store managers discretion.

After being denied so many times, I have now applied for a second card and I will always take 2K in gift cards when I go next time. So that if the cashiers accepts GC, I can do it 2K in one trip.

Has anyone had issues with loading 2 cards with 1K each at the same time?

Good call. Just tried another location and no issues. Picked up a second Target card as well

Target GC isn't allowed for a long time. But why Target CC is not allowed? Is it hard coded or you just would not get 5% back?

In my local target, it is OK to load by gift cards.

Not at all, it's exactly how I do it every time I load my cards.

Had a weird experience in Target:

I went in this morning to load 2x1000 to 2 of my Amex cards with 200$ gift cards (bought from OD). The first load went through fine and in the second load, 2 of the cards didn't work. One of them didn't load any amount and the other only loaded $60. I thought the card was compromised and thought it's going to be a mess to get this sorted out. After I came home, I registered the cards online and it showed a balance of $200 and $140. I have loaded so many times in target and this is the first time, I have got this issue. Anyone else has seen this??
