3 Black Friday Shopping Tips

 

As we enter the 2017 winter holiday shopping season, Victory State Bank is sharing some advice on how to safeguard your money while shopping online.

Black Friday, Nov. 24, marks the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season, as many large retailers advertise sales on popular gift items, like electronics, jewelry, and clothes.

Before you head out to the stores, Victory State Bank, Staten Island’s only community-based business bank, advises you protect your hard-earned dollars by following these tips from USA.gov:

 

§  READ THE FINE PRINT

There may be quantity limits or other conditions that apply to the sales. Report misleading ads to your state consumer protection office.

§  COMPARE BEFORE YOU SHOP

Compare prices for the same item between competing stores. Don’t forget to check for differences in a product’s features and accessories.  

§  RESEARCH UPSELLS

Ask if multi-year contracts, warranties, or subscriptions must be purchased in order to get the advertised offer. Don’t feel pressured to buy services that you don’t need or want.
