Navigating the holiday shopping season can be tough, because how do you know if that great deal is really a great deal?
Traditional stores and online retailers everywhere are offering all kinds of deals this season. But if you want to make sure you’re really getting a great deal online, here are a few tips to follow:
- Check the online seller’s ratings: If there are no ratings, low ratings or the seller is unknown, move on! The savings aren’t worth it.
- Use these trusted sites to keep track of the best deals: Clark Howard’s Deals & Savings, DealNews, Brad’s Deals and BlackFriday.com.
- Price match: If you see a great price online, but aren’t sure about the seller, check with known retailers to see if they will match the price.
