I hope that you had a safe shop on Black Friday. Meanwhile, I wanted to tell you a little about the recent post I wrote – “4 Reasons Not To Shop On Black Friday and Cyber Monday.” I found that something was a little bit confusing, I had to make it right and corrected my recent post – “4 Reasons Not To Shop On Black Friday.” Please forgive my mistake and thank you for understanding (nervously smile).
Today, my two teen sons wanted to buy Xbox games on Black Friday. I told them that they were not worth the money. They were a little grumpy, but they needed to deal with that. They asked about Cyber Monday deals, I did not feel comfortable with it. Truthfully, I never go shopping on Cyber Monday. I asked my husband about Cyber Monday, he said that some online retail stores might have some troubles with the Cyber Monday deals and explained his reasons why Cyber Monday was not safe. Additionally, he said that online shopping with some Black Friday deals are not safe, too. I agreed with him. Let me tell you why you may consider not to shop on Cyber Monday.
3 Reasons Not To Shop On Cyber Monday
- Identity Theft Online & Hackers. Many people shopping online are hacked with their credit cards every day. Over the internet, some online retail stores does not guarantee their safety for credit cards due to the lack of security internet issues. Many people lost the money since their credit cards are robbed technically over the internet and they attempt to get the money back. It’s greatly frustrating and struggling with the internet security.
- Scams through Online Retail Stores. Many people are heartbroken with their scam experiences through online retail stores with the discounted deals. They end up being betrayed with online shopping on Cyber Monday. For example, one of the customers bought used iMac Desktop from the seller through Amazon.com on Cyber Monday, the delivery never arrived. A customer begged for the money back but the seller vanished quickly. It’s huge risk to buy some products from the “scam” sellers through eBay online or Amazon. Be careful what you see in the seller’s review through Amazon or eBay.
- Lack of Being Able to Check the Products. Some customers prefer to check with products physically and be sure that it works or not. For example, one customer bought an amazing toy on Cyber Monday for Christmas gift for her daughter, she found that the toy was not working properly. It could not be returned to the online seller because the toy package was opened. The online seller’s policy mentioned that the returned item was not acceptable. Her daughter was disappointed with the toy.
