Consumers Educate Yourself For The Up and Coming Holiday Season

There are so many deals out there these days, with money so tight, businesses are trying desperately to get your business in order to keep them alive and keep themselves in business. This will be an interesting holiday season coming up in just a few short months with the economy still in crisis, big time and most people hurting, big time as well. We the consumers need to be aware of what they are getting into, the old saying “buyer beware” is oh so true, especially when dealing with online shopping.

Lately I have been seeing a good amount of offers for free business cards online. Only to find out that free doesn’t necessarily mean free. It worries me that so many people are reeled in by offers like these only to find out the hard way that they have been fooled into giving their information (name, address, credit card numbers, etc.) only to find out that they are going to be charged in some way, one way or another.

Folks please be careful all year round and especially around Christmas time.
