Target RedCard and MD+ Issue

keith's Avatar


05 Jul, 2022 12:36 PM

I have a Target RedCard that is registered with MD+. I am able to download an initial set of data from the RedCard account via MD+ (and match those in the register) but then new transactions are not properly downloaded after that. MD indicates that it connects via MD+ and there is no error presented, but no new transactions are downloaded. If I delete the MD+ entry for RedCard in MD+ (the re-linking option does not work to fix the issue) and set up the connection anew, the it downloads the new transactions I expect. After that, no more new transactions download until I repeat the described process. This has been the case for at least 3+ months with Target RedCard and MD+. Can you please assist me to fix this issue?

    I am running Quicken, in addition to Moneydance, and the Target transactions download flawlessly.

    follow up:

    I did a re-sync for the Target account and downloaded starting Aug 1st. Interestingly, I only received transactions for August. Nothing for September!

    Interesting. I do know that every time I remove and add Target back to MD+ It will download transactions for the first time, but never again until I repeat that process.

    Hi all,

    We are sorry to hear about the problem you have encountered.

    Firstly, (if you haven't already) you should download and install Moneydance 2022.5 (4091).

    Then install the latest Toolbox, v1053. You can find the Toolbox under "Extensions->Manage Extensions".

    • Launch the Toolbox and enable "Advanced Mode" from "Toolbox Options" (top left).

    • Choose, "MENU:Online banking Tools".

    • Finally, select the "Force MD+ name cache & access tokens rebuild" option and follow the on-screen instruction.

    Restarting Moneydance should rebuild the connection list. It might take a few minutes and you can also try with the "Refresh" button.
    You should expect the the connection that said "expired" to be fine.
    If the problem persists, take a backup and try this procedure again. Allow some time and restart Moneydance. Then click "Refresh".

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions or need more assistance.

    Maddy, Infinite Kind Support

    Hi Maddy,

    I do already have the latest preview version (2022.5 Build 4091) and I have tried the "Force MD+ name cache & access tokens rebuild" multiple times with this issue. The proposed solution does not fix the issue with the Target RedCard. In fact, the connection for Target RedCard never says "Expired". The connection is valid and up to date, but will not download transactions after the initial setup and first download of data for this particular institution.

    hi Maddy,

    The procedure did not work for me.
    But I have noticed that the current balance matches the target website when I try to reconcile the account. MD is connecting to Target and updating the balance and account information, but as we have noted, it is not downloading the transactions.

    I've had this issue with Target Redcard and MD+ literally since day one on MD+.

    We have created a ticket in Plaid's ticketing system regarding this issue. We will be able to provide an update as soon as they respond.

    We'd recommend importing your data manually for the time being. You can download it using the OFX or QFX file format, if available. If not, use the QIF file format. (These files are sometimes referred to as Quicken or MS Money files). You can import the files to Moneydance using File --> Import.
    The steps for manually importing your data are outlined in this article from the Knowledge Base.
