Cyber Monday: How To Avoid Online Shopping Pitfalls

Move over Black Friday, as Cyber Monday is right behind you on becoming the biggest shopping day of the year. It’s not surprising that many people are beginning to look forward to Cyber Monday over Black Friday.

Cyber Monday is known to eliminate a lot of hassle that Black Friday brings.

Once you make the decision to get your holiday shopping done online, there are a few aspects to consider. We broke down the best tips to make your online Cyber Monday experience go smoothly, and the list begins here.

40. Use Social Media To Follow Your Favorite Retailers

Most businesses have at least one social media account. You can find their account through a search, asking them, or they might have a link on their website. If you have a social media account, check out your favorite retailers and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media platform. 

If you are a visual shopper, you definitely want to check out Instagram or Pinterest. Facebook is excellent for anyone who is looking for relevant information on sales. Twitter is the best platform when it comes to time-sensitive deals.
