Target is offering a store discount and free credit monitoring after what's being called the second-largest credit card breach in U.S. history.

The Minneapolis-based discounter says it will offer 10 percent off for people who shop Saturday and Sunday.

Target hasn't disclosed exactly how the breach occurred but says it has fixed the problem.
