Online Shopping Smarts


What could be better than shopping from the comfort of your living room couch? No crowded malls, no long lines, no harried sales staff – it’s the ultimate in convenience!

Except when it’s just a click here, another there and – whoops! – you’re looking at a huge bill! Or you wait for a product and it never shows up, or, when it does, it’s not what you paid for.

Follow these tips for online shopping smarts.

  1. Look for favorable reviews on both the seller and their product.
  2. Don’t pay attention to arbitrary time limits.
  3. They’re usually falsified.
  4. Shop with a list.
  5. Yes, even when shopping online. Avoid all impossibly low-priced items.
  6. Be wary of products with inadequate descriptions.
  7. Make sure the site name matches the site address.

Check for a secure payment portal. Shopping online is awesome…as long as you’re smart about it.
