Christmas Shopping Tips and
by: S. Roberts
It's that time of year again when everyone hits the high
street to do their Christmas shopping. There are a few
Christmas shopping tips.
Start in June. This saves you panicking in a number
of ways You don't get into debt because you are spreading
the cost of Christmas over 7 months. You get to buy presents
at bargain prices and take advantage of all the summer
sales. There are not Christmas queues and the weather
is dry fine and warm, making your Christmas shopping a
more enjoyable experience.
Leave it until Christmas Eve! The shops are desperate
by this time and slash they prices incredibly. It is a
bit of mad dash but all the Christmas stress is confined
to a single 24 hours.
Buy online. Quick and convenient, no queuing, no
trying to find car parking, no terrible weather. Plus
many retailers offer discounts for online orders, which
means you save money too!
Many people are worried about security and credit card
fraud when buying online. Of course this is a worry, nobody
wants to be the victim of credit card fraud. However,
there are some steps you can take to keep your online
shopping experience as safer transaction as possible.
When buying online, only use reputable retailers. This
maybe a high street retailer who have an online shopping
facilities or a large online store. Maybe a friend has
recommended a particular website that they have purchased
goods from in the past. Some online shops state how long
they have been trading. If a store has been trading online
for a number of years, and is well established, this is
a good indicator of a reputable store.
When shopping online you inevitably end up at the check
out. This is the point where the store will ask
you for your name, postal address and credit or debit
card details. This is the time when credit card fraud
is a danger.
To protect yourself look for a padlock icon in the status
bar at the bottom of the window on the actual check
out page, where the website is asking you to submit
your details. This padlock mean that this page of the
website has a secure connection, so any information that
you submit on this page will not be decipherable to anyone
else, it will be encrypted. If there is not a padlock,
it is not a secure connection despite what the actual
web page content may say.
You can still submit your details, However, you do significantly
increase the risk of becoming a victim of credit card
Our advice would be to contact the website and ask them
to provide you with a secure payment page, or shop elsewhere.
However you do your Christmas shopping this year, Enjoy
your experience and keep your card details safe.
