Give the Gift of Security with Fellowes Powershred 73Ci Shredder #IDSafetySeason

This post was created in partnership with Fellowes. All opinions are my own.

The recent Target security breach, during the holiday season, has many of us giving more thought to protecting ourselves against theft. From savvy internet hackers, to mail thieves, and the people who dig through trash heaps in hopes of snagging a bank or credit card statement, there is so much risk of identity theft. Thanks to the Fellowes Powershred 73Ci Shredder, I am feeling a little bit safer these days.

According to Javelin Strategy & Research, there was one incident of ID fraud every three seconds in 2012. The holiday season is an especially dangerous time of year for this crime as consumers are distracted and sharing their confidential information frequently, such as credit card numbers. It’s also the time of year when people are making changes to health insurance plans, and preparing for tax season. The opportunities for identity thieves are greater than any other time of the year.

I love that this shredder is on castors and can easily be moved around my office or into another room of the house. Unlike shredders I have owned in the past, this one crunches up credit cards with ease and large stacks of paper at once. The bin holds a lot of shredded paper, so I don’t have to empty it very often and it easily pulls open from the front of the machine. My shredder has been used a lot these past few weeks, and it hasn’t jammed once.

This is the perfect gift to help someone start the new year off protected!

How will you and your loved ones be protect in the new year against identity theft?

    This looks like a great shredder! Last night we were going through a big pile of accumulated mail and really put our shredder to work on the unwanted credit card offers, etc.

    We should have a shredder, but haven’t gotten one yet. I love that the one you tried can be moved easily and will shred stacks of papers as well as cards.

    A shredder is on my list of must-haves this year for my office. Both personally and business-wise it is good form to be properly disposing of all that personal information! I really like size and sleek look of this one! Thanks for sharing!

    I own my own business and use a shredder regularly. Having a good one that doesn’t jam is so important. No one wants to spend time unjamming a shredder. This looks like a really nice one.

    I plan to be more careful when throwing out “junk mail”. I’d love to have this shredder. My landlord’s daughter was arrested for mail fraud, going in people’s mail boxes and stealing their mail. With people like that around who is safe?

    I have been wanting a shredder for many years. This one looks like it would do what I need it to do. I think we all need to be super careful about what we throw out.
