Target May Have Botched Up to 40,000 Gift Card Activations Over the Holidays

You guys!


Target appears to have another problem on its hands this holiday shopping season. 

Separate from a data breach that affected some 40 million people who shopped at Target between November 27 and December 15, KMSP-TV has learned that thousands of gift cards sold over the holidays weren't properly activated. As a result, some gift card recipients are left rankled after finding out their present was worth about as much as a lump of coal at the register.
