Cyber Monday 2012

With all the technology we have today, it's no wonder that in 2005 retail stores introduced Cyber Monday.  Internet shopping has made it extremely convenient to buy online while the family is spending time together without having to go out in bad weather or waste gas and time fighting traffic and waiting in lines.  It has also made it possible for more stores to close during the Holidays, allowing employees to have time to spend with their families.  To make your Holiday shopping as easy as possible, Plantation Resort is happy to guide you to the three best stores for online deals this Cyber Monday!

We also want to to stay safe while shopping online! The Better Business Bureau has put together some tips that we feel should be shared with all of our readers.
  1. Shop trustworthy websites. If a store sounds shady, it is worth the extra time and effort to check them out. Search for their name at the Better Business Bureau ( or on Amazon and see if they have a seller rating. Is their website clean and efficient or thrown together and hard to maneuver? Another red flag is if the site looks deceptive - reliable sites usually LOOK reliable. Keep this in mind before making the decision to purchase.
  2. Protect your personal information. Again, if the site is not secure, or just looks suspicious- don’t give them your personal information.
  3. Beware of deals that sound TOO good. A Black Friday travel deal that boasts a Bahamas Vacation for $200 is probably too good to be true. Some of these sites will lead with promises of huge deals, but when you get to the fine print, you end up spending thousands. Always, ALWAYS read the fine print if a deal sounds too good to be true, it's worth the extra effort to avoid finding out later the hard way.
  4. Confirm that your purchase is secure. When you start the checkout process, look at the web address (URL.) Most trusted sites start with "https" versus "http." A web address that begins with https: indicates that the connection has an additional encryption layer and that the transaction will be more secure. While this is not a foolproof method, it is a great way to quickly check how securely the website treats your personal information.
  5. Pay with a credit card. Credit card fees can be disputed. If the company you purchased from turns out to be fraudulent, you have the right to dispute the charges.
  6. Keep all records and confirmations. This should go without saying. Always print your confirmation numbers and receipts. Some take screen shots of the confirmations and save them to their computers. The best way to dispute issues is with evidence. If you have the paperwork to prove your purchase, you're more likely to win a dispute.
