Tip # 12 on Saving, Spending, and Savoring Money

12Nov09

Before you buy any product of value, be sure to check out the reviews of those who have purchased it.

Simply Google the name of the product (and the brand if relevant) and the word reviews, for example “ice cream maker reviews”.

  • Some sites will help you determine the criteria for making a decision on features, cost, or possible uses.
  • You may decide that some features are worth the cost and others are not important enough to spend extra for them.
  • You may learn that the manufacturer is sloppy or meticulous about shipping all of the parts or with the product intact and decide to buy local rather than online.
  • And many of the review sites have brand comparison charts which are particularly helpful.

A few minutes to check out your prospective purchase could save you from making a costly and frustrating mistake!
