Holiday Gift Cards the Latest Problem for Target
Some shoppers who received a Target gift card this holiday season may find that redeeming it requires some work. Target confirmed Tuesday that a number of gift cards sold during the holiday period weren't fully activated, so shoppers attempting to use them would find they had no value. The snafu comes at a tough time for Target, to say the least. The company recently announced that a data breach had affected an estimated 40 million debit and credit card accounts used to make purchases at Target stores during the holiday rush.
