Holiday Online Shopping Guide

The holidays quickly approaching, millions of us will go online for hassle-free shopping this weekend.

With so many great deal around it’s great to check out a couple different websites before making your final purchase. Also check online websites for store discounts & promo codes, every little 10% helps.

But before you make those purchases here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • Know who you’re dealing with. Have you shopped from this site before?

  • Know exactly what you’re buying. Read the seller’s description of the product closely, especially the fine print.

  • What it will cost. Check out websites that offer price comparisons. Factor shipping and handling – along with your needs and budget into the total cost of the order.

  • Check out the terms of the deal, like refund policies and delivery dates. Can you return the item for a full refund if you’re not satisfied? If you return it, find out who pays the shipping costs or restocking fees and when you will receive your order.

  • Lastly, keep a paper trail. Print and save records of your online transactions, including the product description and price, the online receipt, and copies of every e-mail you send or receive from the seller.

Happy Online - Shopping Darlings!
