And you want to trust private business with your health records?

I was at Target on Saturday and didn't get the promised 10% discount until I asked if it was applied. This should have been automatic. Another failure.

pitythefools-you don't remember when the Veterans administration burned in St. Louis and destroyed ALL the records for 12 million veterans. They had NO backup. Lost forever. I'd feel safer with Target and my records than the government.

This could have been averted had Target used stronger digital security.

I was at Target on Saturday and DID get the discount - in fact everyone in my line got the discount (even those who weren't aware of it). But, the US does needs to upgrade their technology on their cards so that the information isn't so easily hacked (which I understand happens mainly with US credit cards).

Target offered no service in store regarding the breach and whether my Red Card should be closed. Couldn't reach Target after numerous attempts by phone. I decided to mail the card back with instructions to close - it concerns me that if I had seen unauthorized debits against my bank account, no Target rep was available to assist or reassure me that they would take care of the problem. I will continue to shop at Target and pay cash only.

If they catch these people I want them publicly stoned! Not more slap on the wrists for identity theft and fraudulent documentation!

I've been hit! Apparently I was in Texas buying items at a Walmart yesterday. Wish it was me. Would be way better than shoveling the white stuff every 8 hours.

I did not get the 10% discount either.
