Faulty gift cards latest stumble for Target

Retail Editor 1 -- Home Textiles Today, January 2, 2014

Minneapolis - The headaches continued to pile up for Target Corp. As the hours wound down on 2013, the retailer said some of its gift cards were not working.
On Tuesday afternoon, the retailer, which is mopping up from a major data breach, said that a small percentage of cards sold over the holiday were not activated. Target said less than 0.1 percent of total cards sold were impacted and that it will honor the affected cards.
Customers were advised to bring faulty cards to any Target service desk or call 800-544-2943.
This latest snafu comes after Target revealed a massive data breach impacting about 40 million debit and credit card holders who shopped in stores at the beginning of the holiday season.
