Buyer beware

  • Some may have shorter return periods or may not accept returns on sale items.
  • These items are sometimes referred to as final sales, non-refundable purchases, last-chance deals, no-return sales and clearance items.
  • Being aware of these policies can help customers make more informed decisions and avoid being stuck with items they don’t want.

What to buy and where to get it

  • However, some items, like the latest Playstation or newest smart phone, may not be as heavily discounted and might be better bought at other times of the year.
  • Shoppers should also avoid buying items they are unlikely to use or consume before they expire including perishable goods like food, cosmetics and vitamins.
  • Customers should also consider where to buy their items.

Pressure tactics

  • It is important to be wary any deceptive tactics to persuade you to buy unwanted products.
  • For example, some stores might use misleading advertising or pressure tactics to convince customers to make purchases with the feeling of fear of missing out (FOMO).
