 The Target Security Breach didn't seem to stop many holiday shoppers from hitting the after Christmas sales and using their credit cards to make purchases.

"I think that we have to be careful all the time.  I wasn't particularly worried over this holiday versus any other time.  I just thought that you always, today, in today's world have to be careful.  Everytime you order something on the internet or you are shopping places, because people are not as honest as we would like,” says, holiday shopper, Faye Owens.

Target Customer Erica Catt had a bit of a scare when she shopped there during the holidays.

"I went in probably the week after Thanksgiving and bought several gifts there, so then I got the notice that it had been compromised, but I had not received the notice from my own bank saying it happened to me, but I was one of those that could have been compromised I guess,” says Target customer, Erica Catt.

"I was and coincidentally I happened to have bought some gift cards the day after the story broke, so I am hopeful that things are safer now,” says holiday shopper, Sunni Millen.

Laura Smith from Idaho Central Credit Union says they are issuing new cards to their customers, just to be on the safe side.

It's just a way to kind of protect them long term and the biggest thing to stress is that none of the cards that they have right now will stop working, in the meantime until the new card is being activated,” says Laura Smith, Public Relations Manager, Idaho Central Credit Union.

Laura says there are still some people out there that have concerns about their credit card purchases.

"There is definitely a lot of questions associated with this situation, but we have actually only had one confirmed case that may or may not be connected with this that we are looking into,” Smith added.

Holiday shoppers have advice for others that may still want charge those After Christmas items.

"Just check your statements, be diligent, our grandparents always paid cash for things, so maybe it's time to go back to the old ways,” added Millen.
