Don't forget to display your refund/return policy prominently in the store or to include it on the receipt. Make sure seasonal/temporary employees are providing consumers with accurate information and policies. Promote yourself as a trustworthy business by displaying your BBB accreditation. Holiday Shopping Tips for Consumers

Check out businesses before you shop. You can find information and business reviews on the BBB website. Whether shopping online or in the store, read up on the store's refund/return policies and keep restocking and shipping fees in mind. Although the best defense to data breaches and identity theft is using cash, remember that credit card purchases better protect you when disputing charges.
