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 & SavingsDealNews, 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.

Also, check out our Online Shopping Guide to make sure you get the best prices this holiday shopping season!
