Target just undercut Amazon on free shipping for online orders

Target just undercut Amazon on free shipping for online orders

When you think online shopping, we bet you don’t really consider Target. The big-box retailer might be your go-to for — well, everything ever — but when you’re shopping online, you’re likely looking to Amazon. That might change, though, as Target just stepped up their online shopping game in a big way. Now, all orders of $25 or more ship for free. That’s $10 less than Amazon’s threshold, and half of Walmart’s $50 minimum purchase amount for free shipping. Target is also offering free returns.

Target ends streaming video service (you didn’t know they had)

Target ends streaming video service (you didn’t know they had)

Believe it or not, Target had a streaming video service for the past 2-years. Did you know about it? Apparently not a lot of people did, as Target has decided to shut the service down. "Target has made the decision," the company said this week "to end the services offered on Target Ticket and will be focusing efforts on other entertainment offerings." This means they'll be bringing more heat to their other, slightly more physical media. Meanwhile those that actually DID know there was a Target streaming video service and actually DID purchase videos through said service will be able to access these videos through CinemaNow.

Target Australia bans GTA 5 due to violence against women

Target Australia bans GTA 5 due to violence against women

Target's Australian branch has taken a rather bold move that will most likely send ripples throughout the country's gaming community and advocacy groups. The retail chain, taking to heart majority of customer feedback, has decided to yank Grand Theft Auto 5 from their store shelves, not because of violence in general, which the game is already popular and notorious for, but specifically because of how women are portrayed and treated in the game. A well-timed move given the recent high-profile controversies regarding genders in games and gaming culture.

Target, other retailers join cyber intelligence sharing co-op

A bevy of retailers have allied to share information on their cyber-security efforts, which should help stem the tide of black-hat hacks like the massive data breach that affected Target last year. The Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center has some of the heaviest hitters in retail, but some who have been affected are abstaining from membership — for now.

Target reportedly ignored credit card hack warnings

Target reportedly ignored credit card hack warnings

Target ignored warnings of the massive credit card hack from the $1.6m security system it had installed specifically to watch out for data thefts, insiders claims, with signs of abuse being flagged weeks before the company recognized the breach. 40m credit card numbers, as well as the personal details of around 70m customers, were stolen late in 2013, costing the retailer $61m already in setting up advice hotlines and taking other measures, but which could well run to the billions once compensation and lawsuits are settled.

Target wasn’t the only retailer that had data stolen in 2013

We've know for a while now that retailer Target was the target of an attack that resulted in the loss of shopper credit card data. Target noted from the start that the credit card data that that was stolen was from customers that shopped in physical stores, not those who shopped online. Early on Target denied that any PIN numbers were stolen along with the card data.

Target: never mind, they’ve got the PINs

It would appear that the debacle Target is facing this holiday season is turning over as we speak. Though they’d previously suggested that findings showed no PIN data to have been stolen in their 2013 credit card breach, today’s update says otherwise. The positive side of this situation is the fact that these PIN numbers are wholly encrypted.

Target says no PIN numbers were lifted in credit card breach

Target was hacked during the busy Christmas shopping season and the resulting data breach is believed to have compromised as many as 40 million credit cards.
