Atty Gen Jackley Encourges Consumers To Do Holiday Shopping With Care

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Attorney General Marty Jackley’s encouraging consumers to shop with care as the holiday season kicks off.

Jackley suggests that shoppers check refund and return policies for restrictions and exceptions, double check delivery dates, review warranties, compare prices and check shipping and handling fees. Those buying gift cards should also check for fees and expiration dates.

Jackley says online shoppers should avoid using email links, which can sometimes divert to a different company. Web buyers should use credit cards for online purchases because it’s easier to dispute fraudulent charges than with a debit card.

He says deep discounts that sound too good to be true likely are.
