How Target Figured Out A Teen Girl Was Pregnant Before Her Father Did
Target assigns every customer a Guest ID number, tied to their credit card, name, or email address that becomes a bucket that stores a history of everything they’ve bought and any demographic information Target has collected from them or bought from other sources. Using that, Pole looked at historical buying data for all the ladies who had signed up for Target baby registries in the past.

This is why you have to stop using the little tags they give you at stores or debit and go cash only and when they ask for info you can say no!

I knew Target stalked me my sister had a baby last month so I bought her a lot of presents at Target. Now I get all kind of coupons for baby crap and even emails from Target about baby items. I don't have kids I hate the way they stalk people.

Same for me - bought shower gifts at Target & now get coupons for baby items.
The really creeeepy thing is, I didn't give them my address.
I used my debit card, but did not give them any information.
