Online Shopping Guide for Early Holiday Shoppers

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008

It might sound silly, but online shopping is no different than store shopping when it comes to shopping lists. Lists can save you time when surfing the Net for items and they can save you money on shipping. You might need to buy gifts for several people. Make a list of the gift recipients and the possible gift items for each person. Visit an online shopping mall that carries a variety of merchandise. If you can buy multiple gifts at one online mall, you might save on shipping and possibly get a package discount.

When ordering from any online store or mall, be sure to print and keep your receipts. You never know when you might need to return something. Also, be sure you understand the return policies of the companies where you buy the gifts. Some companies may offer a refund while others only allow exchanges. Some will refund shipping with your purchase, some will not. Check for restocking fees and whether you or the store will pay for the shipment for returns.
