Cyber Monday tips from the Indiana Better Business Bureau


It's only a few days until the biggest online shopping day of the year so the Indiana Better Business Bureau has some tips to get you ready for Cyber Monday.

The first tip is to plan ahead by making a shopping list and make a budget. The budget will help cut down on impulse buying.

Another tip: make sure there is an "https" and a secure padlock in the internet browser on the purchase page. If there is not one, you should think twice about entering any credit or debit card information.

Also check for shipping details, read the company's return/exchange policy, and if shopping on your smartphone make sure the WiFi is secure.
