Becky says: Retailers are keeping tabs

Posted: Updated:

Have you seen the article from the New York Times about retailers keeping some serious tabs on you? It's extremely interesting and a bit scary. It kind of brings me back to the whole 1984 "Big Brother is Watching You."

This time around, it's "Big Retailer is Watching You."

The article is all about how retailers gain information about your shopping habits. Basically, once you swipe that credit card of yours, it opens the door for retailers to learn pretty much anything they want about you.

Just click here to read the entire article.

It really is interesting ... amazing ... and yes, a tad bit scary.
