ShopRTO offers the following advice to make Christmas shopping as productive and pleasant as possible.
Austin, TX (PRWEB)
Christmas shopping can be one of the most frustrating times of the year, so ShopRTO offers these Holiday shopping tips to best handle the busiest shopping days of the year.
Preparation is key. Long shopping lists mean some items and their specials must be sacrificed. Shopping during the Christmas season and, especially, “Black Friday” means crowds, full parking lots so much time is spent waiting. Maximize that small amount of time to its best advantage.
Prioritize big ticket items. Saving hundreds of dollars on a $1,000 3D TV is much better than a $50 on an iPad.
Coordinate with your friends and family members to distribute the list and stores. Assign each person to a certain part of your town, the shopping mall or different stores.
Be sure of the purchases. Many stores charge re-stocking fees especially high end electronics and computers. If there is uncertainty of Flat Screen TVs, computers and expensive home furniture, rent to own stores return policy is part of the rent to own transaction. There is no obligation or penalty when returning any item.
Have a parking strategy. Find an easy exit even if it’s a little longer of a walk. But make sure to dress warm for winter. Getting sick because of Christmas shopping will not make for a festive holiday.
Shopping for large items such as HD TVs, bedroom furniture, washer/dryer combos for a surprise present can be tricky. Ask the store if they will hold the items for delivery for December 26th. Prepare a nice voucher or card for under the tree.
Many stores have additional charges for holding and delivery. Rent to own stores offer delivery services free and are more customer service orientated so consider those stores when shopping.
