Tips to Read Before You Shop Online

 While shopping online with these deals going on makes it a very rewarding option, it is advisable not to get blinded by the excitement.

1. Compare the prices

Carefully compare prices of products across different portals to sweeten your deal further. You can use some of the best comparison websites like Junglee, MySmartPrice, PriceDekho and Smartprix to check out which e-portal is selling out the product for the least.

2. Go Incognito

Use Incognito browser while shopping online to ensure that that no track of your finances is being kept and to get rid of all cookies once you close the browser.

3. Install App


Some ecommerce portals are offering better price value if you shop through their app. Make the most out of the festive deals by using the latest version of their app.

4. Look for Inflated Prices/Discounts

Don’t go by the discount percentages. Cross-check the current market price of the product and see if the site is offering you any less.

5. Warranty

Check the warranty details to prevent any hassles later.

6. Reviews are the Key

User reviews are the best way to judge the actual quality and performance of any product. Check what existing users have to say about the product.

7. Exchange/Return/Refund Policies

Be extra cautious on checking the exchange, return and refund policies when you buy a product during festive sales.

8. Receiving a Brick!


There have been cases recently when users received a brick or a stone in place of a phone or a laptop. It is advised that you should open your box in front of the delivery box. You can also record a video while unpacking that can be used as a proof to claim your refund.

Just be cautious while you shop online and enjoy getting the products you desire at huge discounts during this pre-Diwali Sale! Happy Festive Shopping Jaipurites!
