Savvy Online Shopping with American Express



Have you made an online purchase that you regret? Tell us about it, and you could win $250 worth of merchandise and gift cards from American Express! That should go a long way towards making up for your mistake, so keep reading to find out how to enter.....


I love online shopping. You just can't beat the variety, the prices and the convenience. As recently as twenty years ago, who would have thought that you could enter the world's largest department store just by turning on your computer, then buy anything and have it delivered straight to your home with a mere click of a button!

Of course, it's important to remember that as simple as it is to shop online, you're still spending your real, hard-earned money. And just like you would guard your wallet in a department store, you need to be safe and savvy when you shop online.

To help educate shoppers about making smart online shopping choices, I'm joining American Express in an Online Savvy Shopper series of posts. For starters, I'm sharing one of my online shopping mistakes below, and reflecting on what I could have done to avoid it:


Be familiar with the site's return policy
Last summer I bought a pair of sheepskin boots online. Since the weather had not yet grown cooler when they arrived, I tried them on once and stashed them in my closet. Once fall had arrived, I started wearing them -- but it only took a couple of uses for me to realize that I should have ordered a size up, because every time I wore them, the boots rubbed my heels raw. Unfortunately, the return period had already expired, so I was stuck with them. Now I have to wear them with socks. I should have made sure they fit properly before the return period was up -- or paid for them with an American Express card, which lets cardmembers return items even though the merchant's return policy has expired (up to $300, up to 90 days).



Buy from a site you know and trust
In hindsight, I should have bought those boots from Zappos or one of my regular online shoe sites with free shipping and returns and a 365-day return policy. I was drawn in by the lower price -- so instead of spending $20 more from an online store with a good reputation, I've wasted $120 on boots that don't fit!

Use a credit card, not a debit card, when making purchases online.
The worst kind of online shopping mistake is the kind you didn't even make. Hackers steal credit and debit card information all the time -- but debit cards don't offer purchase protection. Fortunately I've never had to learn this lesson the hard way, since I always use a credit card when shopping online. I've had to report fraudulent online charges several times -- for a subscription to a "How to Make Money From Home" website, for domain name registration, even for online gaming! -- but since the hackers used my credit card, I was able to get the purchases taken off my bill.




Next week I'll be posting about my Top 5 Fall Must-Haves, and sharing more savvy online shopping tips so that my fall shopping experiences stay fab and fun, not frightful. The week after, I'll be posting about my readers' top online shopping mistakes -- so please leave a comment below with your own mistakes! Don't be shy, we've all made them. Need an extra incentive to share yours stories of shame? How about the chance to win $250 from American Express?

My biggest online shopping mistake was using my debit card to make a Paypal purchase. My Paypal account was hacked and my checking account was raided. Credit cards are protected, but unfortunately checking accounts are not.

My biggest online shopping mistake was ordering beauty products online form a less than reputable site. It turned out my order was an auto renewal program and I got charged bi weekly for new shipments. Who orders the same make up products bi weekly!?! I learned my lesson on that scam and shop with Sephora and other companies I know now.

my biggest online shopping mistake was when I had ordered a pair of shoes a few days before a wedding I was in. They were too small and they wouldnt ship the new ones until the received the ones I was returning. I guess that was understandable but I learned to never order shoes online unless youve tried them on in a store and know they will fit and dont wait until the last minute!

My biggest online shopping mistake was entering the wrong address for a fairly large purchase (computer). I had recently moved and entered the old address.

It all turned out in the end, but was very stressful at the time.

My biggest was trying to order cards through a company that offered free shipping. I went through h*ll and back trying to get the free shipping code to come through, then my correct info didn't show but it chared my credit card three times. It was a nightmare and I finally gave up on it. Thanks.

There's not a specific incident that comes to mind, though I have had my credit card number and/or identity stolen twice in the past, so that might have been the result of shopping at a not-very-secure site. (Don't know.) BUT I often make the mistake of not checking the shipping costs when I am shopping online, usually when I've been shopping for a while and am starting to get irritated and impatient. I have paid WAAAAY too much in shipping sometimes because of that, when for the same amount of money I could have driven to the store to buy the item I purchased. Ugh.
