Cyber Monday

I read in a recent survey that over 90% of shoppers will be partaking in Cyber Monday. 

Are you one of them?

Below you will find a few tips on ways to shop safe online (on Cyber Monday or anytime):

  1. Only purchase from trusted retailers sites (check for “s” in https:// and in the lower-right corner for the “lock” symbol before paying)
  2. Do not purchase items from unsolicited email links
  3. Do not respond to unsolicited emails verifying account information
  4. Read the privacy policies to be assured that they will not be selling your information to other 3rd parties.  If no privacy policy that is a good indicator that you might not want to purchase from site.
  5. Pay with credit card because your credit card most often has some type of fraud protection which will refund your money should you not receive your merchandise
  6. Always watch your statements for incorrect charges
  7. Make sure to keep all your order information handy i.e. order number, confirmation email, company contact info, etc...
  8. Make sure you know the return policy just in case (before you hit the "buy" button)
  9. Do your own price comparison ( and
  10. And last but not least, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is!

I found this great website that highlights the best deals from over 700 online retailers.

Here's to shopping in your pj's in the comfort of your own home!
