Overdoing It to Reach Minimum Shipping Requirements
This can tempt you into adding just a few more items to your cart to reach that minimum—items you probably don’t really need, whose cost alone could nullify whatever you’re saving on shipping.
Not Paying Attention to Shipping Times
Being Lured in by Bright, Shiny Sales and Discounts
Not Knowing Return Policies
The solution? Check out the return policies on any new site you visit (or any site you’re not thoroughly familiar with). Make sure there’s at least a 30-day return window and that items can be returned for any reason. Stores that give you free return labels to send items back get double-points.
How about you all? What mistakes have you made in the past when shopping online? What strategies do you use that seem to work very well?
