Benefits of Online Shopping
With our lives getting ever busier, Internet shopping can
be a stress-free time saver in many cases. Benefits include:
- Anytime Shopping: The Internet is open
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, allowing you to shop at your
convenience. And you don't have to dress up to go there
— robes and bunny slippers are welcome!
- No Traffic: When you shop online, you
don't have to worry about holiday traffic, driving in winter
weather, or trying to find a parking space.
- Less Stress: No standing in long lines,
no inattentive sales clerks, no overly-aggressive sales
clerks, no unruly children and no grumpy customers. And
no getting stuck behind that person in the speedy checkout
lane who is talking loudly on their cell phone, has more
than 10 items, needs a price check, wants to use an expired
coupon and can't find their wallet.
- Variety: The Internet offers an endless
selection of products that might be hard to find locally
or could only be purchased by making many shopping stops.
- Saving Time: In a season when minutes
are precious, online shopping can often save hours. Not
only can you skip driving, parking, shopping and standing
in line to purchase your item, but you can have some of
your gifts shipped directly to their recipients. This also
saves you from wrapping, packaging and addressing your gifts,
as well as driving to the post office and standing in line
to mail them!
- Saving Money: At this time, taxes are
generally only charged for online purchases when items are
bought and shipped in your home state. Every penny counts!
Smart Online Shopping Tips
Here are a few simple tips to make your online shopping
a fun and secure experience:
- Coupon Codes: Whenever possible, use
a coupon code. Though ATC Shopping Deal newsletters are
sent about once a week, new codes are added daily at ATC's
Shopping Section. Coupon codes are offered at other sites
as well, and can often be found at retailers' websites,
in their catalogs, or are sent to you when you join their
- Keep Your Gift List Handy: Create a
gift list and keep it convenient while shopping online.
Use our Printable Gift List for convenience. Sticking
to your list helps you avoid wasting money by making impulse
purchases and staying focused on exactly who you need
gifts for saves browsing and shopping time.
- Free Shipping: Many retailers offer
Free Shipping with minimum purchases. If you have $20
worth of eligible Free Shipping items in your cart at
store that offers Free Shipping at $25, why pay $5-$6
shipping when for the same price you can add at $5 item
of something else from your list or for yourself and have
everything shipped free? In ATC's Shopping section, Free
Shipping offers are indicated in green text to be easily
- Act Fast on Hot Deals: Greatly discounted
items usually don't last long, so buy them while you have
the chance. If it's a really super deal, consider purchasing
more than one of that item and saving extras to be used
for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries or other occasions.
- Buy Off Season: For great savings,
buy Christmas cards, wrapping paper and decorations in
January. Toys and gift sets are frequently discounted
after the holidays. If you have blankets or clothing items
on your gift list, buy them out of season and you're likely
to find great bargains. But stick to your list so you
don't wind up making unnecessary purchases and with a
pile of unneeded gifts come Christmas time, in which case
you're losing rather than saving money.
- Shop Year Round: Don't wait until December
to buy all of your gifts, maxing out your credit cards
and adding stress to your shopping experience. Again,
use your gift list to shop throughout the year. This not
only reduces stress during the holidays, but allows you
to save money by purchasing some gift items while they
are on sale. Buy a plastic storage box to keep in a closet
and store gifts there.
- Debit Cards: Consider opening a second
bank account with a debit card which can be used for online
purchases. This way you control the balance, your purchases
are often protected and you can use your monthly statement
to verify purchases or dispute charges. And you remove
the worry of online hackers getting into your bank account
or stealing credit cards accounts with high limits.
- Save Receipts: Print online receipts
and save all receipts for returns and to verify your credit
card statements. Use a sturdy envelope or purchase an
inexpesive, wallet-size plastic file to keep them in.
Many stores now offer gift receipts which do not show
the price of the item and may included when wrapping presents.
General Shopping Tips
- Your Gift List: Never underestimate
the importance of your Christmas list. Take it with you
when you shop to avoid impulse purchases and overspending.
Use our Printable Gift List for convenience.
- Shopping Wallet: Use a spare wallet
while shopping. Place in it only the items you will need
for shopping (credit cards, department store cards, identification,
checkbook, etc.) Should your wallet be stolen, you will
at least be spared losing precious pictures or having
to replace library cards, voter's registration cards,
- Shop Early: Shop early to avoid long
lines and to ensure that the products you want will not
be sold out.
- Purse Smarts: Do not make yourself
a target for shoplifters or pickpockets. Wear your purse
toward the front of your body and keep it fastened shut.
Try to keep one hand free at all times.
Store Policies: Be sure to check out refund and return
policies before making your purchase.
- Charge It: Pay with a credit card.
It's safer than carrying cash and offers consumer protections
you don't get with purchases by cash or check. If you
find an error on your credit or charge card statement,
you may dispute the charge and withhold payment on the
disputed amount while the charge is in dispute.
- Stow Packages: Do not tempt thieves
by storing packages in plain view in your car. Store them
in the trunk and keep your car locked.
- Save Receipts: Save all your receipts
for returns and to verify your credit card statements.
Use a sturdy envelope or purchase an inexpesive, wallet-size
plastic file to keep them in. Many stores now offer gift
receipts which do not show the price of the item and may
included when wrapping presents.
