No issues so far, but we’re watching. I’m grateful that I use credit cards and not my bank card. If we get dinged at least the credit card company will remove the charges before we have to pay the bill.

So far, I haven’t noticed anything weird. I’m hoping that it stays that way. I know I used my debit card there at least once during that time frame.

No issues so far. I am fairly sure that I only used my Target debit card. I’m watching carefully. My bank (USAA) also has on their website a statement that they are aware of the problem and are watching/taking steps as well.

No issues so far. But I’ll be checking the credit card statements a little more frequently. I’m glad I didn’t use my debit card. I normally check our account statements for bank cards, credit, every two weeks.

@Treejewel19:  I shopped December 10th with Credit Card. So far, so good.

No issues here! But DH is keeping an extra-close eye on it!

None yet. However, I was reading that in the previous TJMaxx breach some had their info used months later. I don’t want to have to watch my card for that long so I just ordered a new one.

Question:  Does this affect any person that used any credit card?? Or just Target Card users?  That is really unclear to me.

Ugh… I did shop in store during that time, but both my husband and I have agreed not to look at the credit card activity until after Christmas as to not spoil what things we got each other. I’m conflicted. I feel DUMB for not looking, but I’d feel guilty FOR looking. No bueno.

Edit: Obviously seeing most stores like Target on the statement will be innocent enough, but I don’t want the conversation “Husband, did you go to a Coach store???” “…yes” *SPOILED* to happen.

@Treejewel19:  I was at Target on 12/14 and used my Citi credit card. I’ve been monitoring my activity, and nothing suspicious yet.

For Citi creditholders, there is a banner on the site that says Citi is aware of breach and keeping an eye out. I had my CC info stolen back in October when I was traveling, and they caught $340 of suspicious Walmart charges so I know they’re good at having my back.

It’s just so annoying for those who needed to get new cards as they probably wanted to use them for Christmas shopping. :/

I think I read that they said Target cards are okay and can’t be stolen but I’m not 100% sure.

I used my CC a few times over the past few weeks but AMEX has always been great with fraud so I’m not worried about it at all. If I had used my debit card, I would be worried though because those are worse.

Nothing yet, knock on wood.  I used mine several times and DH did once. So we are keeping a close eye.
