It will make a product look bigger or smaller than. Make sure to browse the description which means you know exactly what you are actually purchasing.
2. Be careful when it comes to the online stores that you consider buying from. If the online store is poorly designed, packed with misspellings, and overall fishy, you should take your money elsewhere. These are signs that something might not be right about this store. It's safer to be safe than sorry.
4. Make it a habit to register for price alerts. This goes for purchases that you've recently made. Price alerts will tell you when a product has dropped to a price you like. And when you've recently purchased at full price, you can request a price adjustment to meet the new deal.
5. Be wary of any emails you receive, even if they appear to be coming from a retailer you trust. Never click on a hyperlink that directs you to a site other than the one you shopped on. Should you, you may become vulnerable to a scam. Rather than simply clicking on an email hyperlink, just go approximately your browser and enter the web site you want to go to. It is actually much safer that way.
