Cyber Monday is an easy way to save money on items you want all from the convenience of your own home. Last year over 2.2 billion dollars were spent online. Here are a few tips that can make a huge difference in being prepared for the big day.
Browse, click and pay, your holiday shopping can be as easy as that and half of all cyber spenders do it while at work!
First, forget about scouring through all the paper ads and check out Retale app and website. Just list the products you want, the stores you shop in and where you live. Retale app sources the circulars and then gives you the store with the best price.
Also, just because you're not in a store, doesn't mean you don't have to shop early. Many items run out and sales may be time specific. Remember, only pay with a credit card, not a bank debit card. This will help protect you from giving cyber criminals your bank info.
And before Monday go to cybermonday.com and freeshipping.com to receive codes for free shipping and discounts at over 800 stores. Here's another tip, make sure your browser says "https" when entering your credit card or personal information online because the "s" stands for secure.
