In case you happen to miss out on Black Friday deals, all you have to do is sit back and wait for another three days. Cyber Monday is the next big shopping event after Black Friday. It comes with its own set of deals on the Monday after Thanksgiving. What started as a spin-off to Black Friday, encouraging people to shop online has now evolved into a full-fledged event. Which means you can skip long lines and crazy crowds, sit at home comfortably and shop your heart out. Cyber Monday brings with it incredible deals and discounts. But before you dive in, here are a few things you should keep in mind:
Verify the seller and the product – Research the site you wish to buy from as well as the product. Read as many reviews as you can. Be sure that you can contact the seller if any problem arises.
Do not click on random email links – Scammers and data hackers are aware of Cyber Monday too and will use it as an opportunity to gain access to your personal information and money. You may receive unexpected emails offering great deals. Do not click on such links. Type in the site name manually in the search engine, confirm the company and then proceed from there.
Look for discounts – Most retailers offer site wide discounts on Cyber Monday. If the product you are looking for is not on sale on a particular website, then try another site. You’re most likely to find it there. Do not dive into a purchase straight away without checking for the best deal.
Use credit cards for your payments – Credit cards are secured and give you extra security as they have fraud protection. You can also block the payment in case of any discrepancies.
Check for easy returns – Find out about the seller’s return policy and whether the payment is refundable. You do not want to get stuck with something that is not your size or something that you’re not happy with.
Ensure secured checkout – Look for a URL that starts with https. The ‘s’ stands for secured. If you are not too sure of the site or if the payment gateway is not secured, leave the site.
Save all records – Keep all your receipts and records of payment transactions until you have received all goods and are satisfied with the quality of the product.
Look out for deals that start early by following retailers on social media and signing up for any newsletters. This will ensure that you get to know when the deals go live.
