Target is offering a FREE credit report, daily credit monitoring, and identity theft insurance (where available) to those who shopped at a Target store between November 27, 2013 and December 15, 2013.
Go to the link here to get started:
A few important things to know:
- Be wary of calls or email scams that may appear to offer protection but are really trying to get personal information from you. Please navigate directly to websites rather than clicking on links within emails.
- Guests who have been impacted by the breach have until April 23, 2014 to sign up to receive an activation code. Activation codes must be redeemed by April 30, 2014.
- The information captured in this process will not be used for any purpose other than providing you with credit monitoring services. Please note: if you are receiving other Target communications (e.g., weekly circular, Cartwheel, Target.com deals), you will continue to receive those offers and emails.
I shopped at Target during those dates and used my Target Red Card debit card. I have been monitoring my bank account myself but I am going to take advantage of this offer. Were you affected too?
