Tip of the Week

Tip Eighty-Five

December 18, 2012 | Alliant Credit Union

Last minute shopping? Don't get gouged on shipping fees!

While many websites will still claim to certify Holiday delivery, be sure you aren't getting gouged on the shipping fees.

Do your homework before you buy online and check the shipping fee. If it is exceptionally high, print the online price of the item you are shopping for and find a local retailer who will match the price.

Buy your item in-store at the online price to save on shipping and take the gift home with you!

Keep in mind: without the brown box packaging your gift will be easily recognizable. Be sure to find a clever hiding spot to store the gift until you can wrap it up!
