Understand the value of what you are buying.
In doing so, you become a better consumer and understand how to shop online.
Whenever you want to purchase an item (old or new), I do one or more of the following items.
1. Google it
There are a lot of other sites where you can do comparison shopping but the above sites are what I find most useful.
In determining the true value, you have to consider the following items:
- retail price
- shipping & handling
I find that amazon’s customer reviews are valuable in evaluating a product.
