Shop Around

It never fails to amaze me how many people don't bother to shop around!

They often buy the first item they see either in a shop or on the internet, get it home or have it delivered, only to find out at a later date, from a friend, workmate or a neighbour, they could have bought the same item or service for far less money.

As a consumer, before you make any purchase, whether it's a product or a service - you owe it to yourself to take the time to shop around for the lowest price, the best quality, and what guarantees and after sales service is offered.

Remember - "Time spent on reconnaissance is seldom, if ever, wasted!"

In other words - do your homework!

  • Check out the supplier and product before you buy.
  • Never sign anything without reading and understanding it.
  • Check the return policy before you buy.
  • If it's important to you, get it in writing.
  • Credit costs. Use it wisely.
  • Assume all contracts are binding.
  • Always check your bills for errors and scams.
  • Never succumb to high-pressure sales pitches.
  • Never pay for a "free" prize.
  • Consider quality. The lowest price may not be the best value.

Mortgages, loans, credit cards, bank charges, interest rates, and utilities are perhaps the worst examples where people fail to compare trends, offers, prices and hidden costs.
