Cyber Monday: Shoppers Log-On to Buy

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Its the first Monday after Black Friday: Cyber Monday, the biggest online shopping day of the year.

Shoppers like Chuck Vaughan will log-on this year to look for the best deals without the legwork involved in Black Friday. Chuck says he will be buying for those reasons: no crowds, more selection and lower prices.

The fact that these websites are competing with each other normally mean the most affordable prices for consumers. It is much easier to lower prices online than in a store, as one analyst said.

That could lead to you checking the same website two or three times in a single day to get the best deals.

For websites like eBay and Amazon, where you can buy from individuals, feedback is very important. Check it to avoid buying from potentially bad buyers.

Websites like those, as well as PayPal, have gaurentees that protect buyers money. Resolution sections will let you request refunds and after short investigations, customer service representatives will help you out.
