Target is offering to provide a FREE year of credit monitoring for all their guests who shopped at their stores during the time period of the recently publicized data breach. If you shopped at Target between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 2013, you should keep a close eye for any suspicious or unusual activity on any credit or debit card accounts that you used while shopping during that time. In addition to keeping an eye on your credit card and bank statements, you can sign up for to claim your FREE Experian ProtectMyID credit monitoring service. This is usually something you have to pay for, but Target has arranged to cover the cost for everyone and you’ll be given a special activation code so you do NOT need to provide your credit card number to take advantage.

It includes daily credit monitoring, identity theft insurance (except where prohibited by law), and access to personalized assistance from a highly trained Fraud Resolution Agent. Access to the Fraud Resolution Agent will continue even after other benefits of the initial one-year ProtectMyID membership expire. After 12 months, those who register have the option to continue their memberships at their own expense.

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 have until April 23, 2014 to sign up to receive an activation code. Activation codes must be redeemed by April 30, 2014.
