You know all those stories of people who have had their identity stolen? It may all seem like it is “someone else” but that isn’t the case in my family. My mom had her identity stolen a few years ago. She has no idea how it happened and didn’t even know until they filed their taxes and her social security number had come up already used. Talk about a scary situation!
I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Fellowes Brands. I received a product sample to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
My mom has always been careful. She never trusted anyone with her social security number or credit cards. She never gave that information away. There is no reason for her information to be stolen, but it was. That is a tough thing to handle, especially when you are so careful. She had a shredder she used but it recently stopped working. That is why I knew this Fellowes M-12C shredder was going to be a gift to her before it even arrived at my house.
There are so many great features with this shredder. My mom has been testing it out for a bit now and told me the things she enjoys most.
Features of Fellowes M-12C Shredder
It is powerful!
- The M-12C shredder can shred up to 12 pieces of paper at one time. My mom can go through her mail and shred anything she needs right away.
It really shreds!
- The cross cut blades make the shredding super easy. You don’t have to worry that your shredding is going to be easy to put back together. Those blades can turn one sheet of paper into about 302 particles!
It’s a workhorse!
- The shredder will run for 5 minutes without having to cool down. That is a lot of shredding!
- The Fellowes M-12C is a slim shredder that can fit in small spaces. My mom is able to use this near her trash can, which is the perfect spot for it.
It takes it all!
- The shredder has the ability to shred credit cards, paper clips, staples and junk mail so you can have a faster job of shredding.
- With little kids often in her house, my mom worries about the safety of having a shredder. With SafeSense® Technology she doesn’t have to worry any longer. It automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening.
This shredder is the perfect gift for those on your shopping list who need some organization in their life… or those that are worried about identity theft. I know my mom is so happy to have a shredder back in her life. She knows the true danger of letting your information get out into the world and using a shredder sets her mind at ease.
The Fellowes M-12C is available at Target Stores nationwide and at Target.com with a suggested retail price of $99.99. Be sure to check it out for your loved ones this holiday season.
