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.
