1. Know your sales
With the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales over, it should be obvious that the best deals often appear during this time.
2. You can never have too many tabs opened!
With all the information online, there are many sites where you can compare prices and get information. So open a new tab for more information!
3. Research, research, research!
Does the item have all the functions you need? Have you read reviews? If not, continue searching!
4. Buy from reputable sites
If something goes wrong, at least there will be channels to give feedback to. Also, reputable sites are more likely to have proper terms and conditions laid out, ensuring a safer shopping experience.
5. Look out for online exclusives and discounts
Some online stores offer freebies or discounts – just because you’re shopping online! Businesses are able to close deals without congestions in stores, while you get to shop in comfort. It’s a win-win situation!
6. Get connected!

When you sign up for e-mail alerts and connect with online retailers on their social media accounts, chances are you’ll get notified of sales and discounts ahead of the rest!
7. Be prudent
As easy as online shopping may be, it could also be dangerous! When you shop online, you’re sharing confidential information such as your personal and credit card details. So make sure the Internet connection is secure, and there is the necessary security software in place.
8. Free delivery for you?
Look out for sites with free delivery! In the age where online shopping is so common, many online stores will offer free delivery – some with minimum spending. Otherwise, with delivery costs, the item may come up to a much heftier price than if you were to purchase it on another site which offers free delivery.
