    i do not have a target credit card, nor ever shopped at target online. Do you know how they got my email address?

      Companies such as Target may hold a large database of customer information (for mailing lists, marketing lists, marketing analysis, etc.). If you ever shopped at Target or any businesses associated with Target in the past, it is likely you may have submitted information that was collected and used to send you an email.
