The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota sees a lot of scams that are centered around holiday shopping, including Mother’s Day. According to the BBB there were 96,000 searches for trustworthy florists on the organizations website.

I certainly wouldn’t want you to fall victim to any scam trying to make mom happy on Sunday, so follow these simple tips for a headache free Mother’s Day.

Do Your Homework

Before ordering a gift online do some research about the company you’re giving your credit card number to. You can always check out or other business review sites.

Allow Time For Shipping

Check with the store to be certain that you have allowed enough time for shipping. Make sure that the arrival date is specified clearly and guaranteed when you order.

Have Plan B

Maybe you won’t have enough time to get mom that awesome gift in the mail, so have a backup plan. Maybe a crafty/handmade gift will help in a pinch.

Make Sure the Business has Important Information

If you’re having something delivered, make sure the address is right, the requested delivery times will work and any additional directions are given to the business.
