More Shoppers Paying With Cash After Security Breach

Posted: Updated:

It's the last shopping weekend before Christmas and many people are choosing to pay with cash.

That's after Target announced last week that criminals hacked information from as many as 40 million debit and credit cards used at their stores.

The big-box retailer offered weekend shoppers a 10 percent discount, but still, some customers are wary of how to pay as they finish all of their holiday shopping.

"If I have cash it's safer, so I know it's not going to happen." says Ashley Meyer.

"I was really surprised, I thought stores kind of knew how to prevent those kinds of things, but I also feel kind of bad for Target because they seemed, a lot of people are really upset, but they didn't try and do this, I don't know what steps they could take to prevent it because obviously it does make me cautious about using a credit card or a debit card, I much prefer to use cash or gift cards." says Megan Graupmann.
