Protect Yourself From Identity Theft With a Fellowes Shredder @FellowesInc #ad #IDSafetySeason

Sharing is Caring

I’m sure you’re familiar with the recent Target security scare? I was at my son’s class Christmas party and my friend asked us if we’d heard about it, and had any of us shopped at Target during the time of the theft…. I had to think about. Luckily, I had not.

I was also appreciative that I have a state-of-the-art P-12C Fellowes paper shredder.

Fellowes P-12C  Shredder #IDSafetySeason

It definitely gives me peace of mind to be able to shred receipts, documents, credit cards, etc., that I no longer need, but contains information that a thief could use to to steal my identity.

My husband and I shred everything. Every. Thing.

Fellowes P-12C  Shredder #IDSafetySeason

We do most things electronically anymore. But any paper we do have, unless it’s filed away for tax purposes, gets shredded. The P-12C Fellowes paper shredder would make the perfect gift to spend those Christmas gift cards you received this holiday season.

Here are some of the things I love about the P-12C Fellowes Shredder besides the slim design:

  • Cross-Cut blades that destroy 12 sheets of paper into approximately 309 particles per sheet, making it extremely difficult to reassemble
  • SafeSense® technology which automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening
  • The ability to shred credit cards, paper clips, staples and junk mail for added convenience
  • The P-12C can be purchased at Walmart Stores nationwide and at www.Walmart.com for a suggested retail price of $99.97.

I love the SafeSense technology, especially with a child (and his friends) and a puppy in the home. And being able to drop in all my junk mail without worrying about removing the staples, is a nice little bonus.

If you are like me and concerned about protecting your identity (and we all should nowadays), I highly recommend the Fellowes P-12C Shredder.

    great post i agree

    My boyfriend and I were just speaking yesterday about getting a shredder.. Now I know which one I want to get.

  53. Kelly says:

    Great review. A good shredder is key. I have had ones that will only shred one piece of paper at a time and if you even think of putting in something with a staple or tape, it self destructs.
