Only a few days after a system breach, Target has announced a 10% discount for this holiday weekend for all customers. But how comfortable do people really feel swiping their cards from here on out?
When Target's system was compromised, 40 million debit and credit card users were potentially at risk for hackers. A 10% discount wasn't enough to get many people back in Target's good graces, but some people were more understanding.
"I personally go through Chase and there's a message when you check your account information saying that if there are any unauthorized transactions they are 100% and they will debit the money back into your account. So i don't think it's a huge deal. If you did lose some money, you get it paid back," said Steven Lowther, a Harrison County resident.
For the time being, Target will have to repair it's relationship with millions of customers, but an interesting question relates to the future of credit cards and their security as a whole.
