2. When shopping online, most places only accept debit or credit cards. Keep this in mind when you are selecting a site to purchase from. If you don't feel comfortable providing the company with your credit card information, try to find another site. Try to find a website that offers a good page when you're adding your credit card information.
3. If you're purchasing clothes or shoes online, be careful with the sizing. Some items typically run smaller or greater than normal. Some shopping sites will advertise if an item runs true to size. If the site doesn't list anything about sizing, glance at the reviews. In most cases, if the item is running larger or smaller, the reviewers will let you know.
4. When looking for a product online, take the time to read reviews. Try finding the same product on different sites to read as many reviews as is possible. Reading many reviews can help you get a more general idea of whether or not the product you are interested in meets high standards of quality.
5. Be extra careful when you search for shopping deals on social media. Although it's a great way to get announcements regarding sales and coupon-codes, social media accounts can be easily impersonated as well as out-right hacked. Get your information on the social networking sites, then proceed directly to the main site of the store mentioned to wheel and deal.
