Target is now allowing anyone who shopped at their stores a chance to sign up for a year of free credit monitoring. According to a Target:

"Last week, Target announced that we would offer all Target guests who shopped our U.S. stores one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection. Beginning today, guests may sign up for that service.

After a thorough review of options, Target has chosen ProtectMyID, provided by Experian – a leading global information services company that helps individuals understand and keep track of their credit reports, as well as monitor for, and resolve, identity theft.

Guests have until April 23, 2014 to request an activation code, and then until April 30, 2014 to register for free credit monitoring through ProtectMyID."
