Online Shopping Tips:
- Shop early for computers. Because of massive flooding damage in Thailand, hard drives are in limited supply and have increased in price.
- Watch where you click. Don't open emails from unfamiliar stores or "friends". Beware of advertisements with prices or offers that are too good to be true. Make sure to have the latest antivirus program and operating system updates.
- When using a credit card to shop online, check recent activity and monthly statements to make sure charges are accurate.
The overall peak of UK online shopping is Cyber Boxing Day, 26 December, with early Boxing Day sales starting a few days before Christmas.
