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 BBB.org 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.
