Credit monitoring package includes a copy of your Experian credit report, daily credit monitoring, identity theft resolution and insurance, and ProtectMyID ExtendCARE.

    I signed up for this two weeks ago (1/13). During the sign-up at the Experian website, I verified my identity by SSN/DOB, answering multiple choice questions about my credit history, usual things... but THEN the website said they would verify my identity by mailing a confirmation to my home address (wait, WHAT?). Two weeks later, I haven't received a thing from them. Perhaps they're too busy handling Target's customers, but WTF?

    Yeah input more information into a website whose data can be hacked. I'll take my chances with just getting a new cc.

    Target needs to die. They should have spent more on network security and less on god-awful ads that support crappy TV shows. If you MUST buy Chinese-made crap there, then at least spend cash, send them a message that they cannot be trusted. All we need is for Target to go the way of Circuit City in order to tell the rest of them to HIRE SOME F'N IT SUPPORT!

    Target IT obviously leaves a lot to be desired, however I'd rather see Walmart go away.

    Wondering where in the fine print they snuck in the line that says by using this service, you agree not to join a class action lawsuit against Target?? Rolling Eyes

    Considering that the CIA, NSA and dod have all been hacked you can hardly blame target.

    ^ Yeah but given today's climate, nobody in their right mind would trust those 3 agencies with credit card data, despite what Obama will tell you an hour from now.

    That's weird, I actually had no issues signing up (other than qualms about giving Target my email address), and they never said anything about mailing a confirmation. Maybe you got one of the questions wrong, according to their data at least?
