With thousands of sites to choose from, concern is mounting for vulnerable online shoppers who were supposed to buy the best products during last year’s Cyber Monday, and be among the happiest shoppers online. But what went wrong for thousands of online shoppers across the country during Cyber Monday 2012?
Many things could go wrong for shoppers during Cyber Monday if they don’t know how to get the best electronic deals; if buyers don’t know any tactics to make the most of their shopping experience; don’t know if they are certain retails that have the best deals; if buyers don’t know what electronics tend to be “best buys” during many of the Cyber Monday sales.
Good Tactics or Tips to Make the Most of Your Cyber Monday Dollars
Buy now or buy later. Shopping online during Cyber Monday is no different from shopping on Black Friday: if we don’t buy what we want quickly, somebody else will. However, online shopping has one advantage that traditional shopping doesn’t have: the “add to cart button.” In order to get the best deals, buyers should click the “add to shopping cart” or “add to cart” to place the items they wish to buy on hold before purchasing. This strategy will give buyers time to make a quick consultation (price comparisons) to see if he or she is getting a good deal, but they need to make the decision quickly so they do not miss the opportunity to buy the selected items.
Buyers should use a price comparison tool. There are sites that can help buyers compare prices on several items at once to get the best deals. Google Products and PriceGrabber are the best sites to compare prices.
Seek the opinions of experts. Reviews from experts and people who have already purchased the items on our list would help us determinate if a particular offer is worthwhile. For electronics and technology, we can count on the opinion from other customers on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.
Using coupons is a great way to further reduce the cost of products; however, there are thousands of sites waiting for buyers to buy their products at ridiculous prices with or without the aid of coupons. For this purpose we recommend buyers the following site:
Cybermonday.com highlights the best deals from over 800 online retailers. Buyers can receive coupons and great deals in advance if they subscribe to any of the retailers. The site will also be providing special offers at various times during Cyber Monday; a few of this offers include free shipping on any purchase.
Shop.org gave birth to the idea of Cyber Monday and owns cybermonday.com. This site is the most trusted site for our Cyber Monday needs. Of course, there is Amazon and many more, but we prefer cybermonday.com
What types of electronics purchases should consumers be focusing on Cyber Monday? The answer to the question depends on the consumers. Nonetheless, a smart consumer will opt for low-priced electronics during Cyber Monday because he or she knows that any item on sale is worth more. And they don’t have to regret anything because they bought everything 70% off. We have highlighted our favorite electronics and view our opinions:
- Bowers and Wilkins P5 headphones. Online retailers could have good deals for these high-fidelity earphones. The earphones are made with sheep leather and metal designed to protect the ears while filling the tympanic membrane with melodies of high quality sound. The headphones include an integrated microphone that allows users to take phone calls. Priced at 300 dollars.
- The Lenovo IdealPad Yoga 13 should be included on the Cyber Monday shopping list of buyers. This new device runs on windows 8, costs approximate 900 dollars, and has something that laptops were lacking: flexibility. Buyers can fold the screen all the way back and use it as a tablet.
- Sonic Compact camera Rx1. For people who are looking for a compact camera and want a reasonable price, they should take a look at the Fujifilm x10. But if they are looking for the smallest camera on the market with a full frame sensor, they should buy the Rx1. Its exorbitant price reaches $2,999; however, during Cyber Monday, for photographers who take their career seriously and want a high quality camera, they could buy this camera without going broke.
The federal laws of the United States of America states that purchases made online need to be shipped within the time specified. If not, consumers can cancel the purchase and claim back the money. On the other hand, if consumers need or want to return the items, which are commonly accepted by retailers for a period of three days or depending on the terms and conditions on the website, they could do so.
Also, consumers need to take the time to check the policies of the websites; nobody wants to buy an item and end up getting thousands of unsolicited offers because their personal information was sold to a third party.
Print the confirmation. Once buyers have made the purchase, it is very important to print the receipt. Buyers can print or receive a copy by email.
