New York (News 12 NJ via CNN) -- Target has run into another holiday shopping glitch!

The retailer confirmed on Tuesday that some customers are having problems using their Target gift cards at the the cash register.

A spokeswoman tells CNN that "some Target gift cards were not fully activated and apologize for the inconvenience."

Target declined to provide a tally of faulty cards but said they will honor the problematic cards.

This comes just after Target revealed it had been the victim of a massive credit card hack that breached 40 million customer accounts, and stole encrypted pins.
