Target: Free Credit Monitoring for their Data Breech

Hey you!  Yes you!   Did you shop at Target in December?  If so, or even if you didn’t, I’m sure you have heard about the breach in their credit card/debit card data security systems.

If you don’t know:

Now you know….

So to try and make amends, Target Corporate announced today that it would offer free credit monitoring for a year, for anyone who signs up on their site before April 2014.

So note the word “anyone” — you don’t have to have been effected by the breach to sign up, you don’t even have to have shopped at Target.  So for those who’s new years resolutions/goals/et. al. include better personal finance this seems like a fantastic opportunity!  The program Target has chosen to partner with is Experian, so it’s a legitimate monitoring program through a legitimate site.
