  • Samantha says: “My dominicks was also re-stocking the freezer on Tuesday night with the same items.”
  • She follows up: “I should add that they were only using one section of freezer so it was hard to tell what the original prices of the items were because the tags didn’t match-up. The pizza, fries, Kashi frozen meals were good deals, the waffles and frozen veggies only so-so.”
  • Angie sends over: “I have an inside scoop from an employee that tomorrow starts 75% off. They have been getting truck loads from the warehouse everynight with new stuff to “stock”.  they never really know what will show up!”

  • A question from sarah: “does anyone know if this includes your target red card? It is linked to a debit card but you can only use it in target stores…..TIA”
  • And julie shares: “Been reading up on some news sites. So far, it seems to only affect in-store purchases, not online. It looks like it was the POS terminals themselves that were hacked, and not the central database, so far. What this means is that RedCard linked checking accounts and routing numbers should not be affected, but card numbers and PIN’s may be. Also, be very wary if you’ve signed up for a RedCard during this time as the POS terminals were used. This means potentially DL#’s or SS#’s may have been hacked from those signing up for a card during that time. Regular credit and debit cards were also affected. I would recommend monitoring any cards you’ve used at a Target store for unusual activity. If you see and suspicious activity, report it to the back/CC company immediately and get a new card number issued. If you don’t have anything suspicious yet, you can either request new cards now or wait a bit, as the major credit card companies typically send out replacements automatically once they can confirm with Target may ahve been compromised”
  • Sarah reports: “Just an FYI. I know that I used my debit card during the dates mentioned at Target. Even though I did not see any suspicious activity on my account, I did call my bank to be on the safe side. Be prepared to wait a bit whoever you call today, I’m sure everyone and their mom is calling. The customer service rep said that my info specifically wasn’t involved, but did put a flag on my account to be safe. So it is quite possible that banks and credit card companies may already know which specific customers had their info stolen or they could just be saying this for my peace of mind :-)”

    Two weeks ago I had a fraud charge on my discover. It was an online purchase at Gander Moutain. I still had my discovercard. Check your accounts! I can’t be sure but I suspect this happened as a result of this Target situation.
