Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and this year shoppers are expected to spend 4.2 percent more than they did in 2009. According to IBISWorld, clothing and electronics will be the biggest spending categories. One of the best places to get deals on both high-tech items and designer apparel is online. Satellite Star Internet, an authorized dealer for Satellite Internet with HughesNet, offers the following tips for getting the best online deals this Mother’s Day.
Start with sites known for savings – One of the best places to shop for mom is on Amazon.com. The site offers brand new handbags, clothes and more at prices significantly lower than department stores. For people who like to see what they’re buying in person, it’s easy to find the right gift in stores and then look it up on Amazon. The popular site even offers extra savings around major holidays like Mother’s Day so start shopping now.
Shop using a secure Internet connection – There’s nothing like finding the perfect gift. But if it’s purchased on an unsecure Internet connection, it can end in disaster. Hackers can access personal information, including credit card numbers, when shoppers surf using an unsecure connection. Satellite Internet offers one of the most secure high-speed Internet connections available. It takes the stress out of online shopping and makes the process quicker, too.
Let the experts help – There are plenty of great websites dedicated to Mother’s Day gifts and must-have items for moms in 2010. From online flower retailers that let consumers customize the perfect bouquet, to specialty sites like Red Envelope, it’s easier than ever to find a gift that every mom will love. Plus, Red Envelope lets shoppers narrow down gifts by price and offers a variety of items than can be personalized in time for Mother’s Day.
Take advantage of freebies – Sending a great Mother’s Day note doesn’t have to cost a thing. E-card websites have grown in popularity and many of them offer free cards for every occasion. Send an e-card in addition to flowers or a small gift. It’s a great way to remind every mom and wife how much she is appreciated.
