5 Online Shopping Do’s and Don’ts

Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, but there are still great ways to save while shopping for friends and family this year. We have put together a list of tips we find very helpful during this time of year.

1. DO Make a list (and check it twice)

Write down everyone you plan to buy a gift for and some choices of what you might get them. This will keep you organized and enable you to set an accurate budget.

2. DO Set a Budget (and stick to it!)

Set a Budget For Everyone


A lot of people are surprised how much they actually spend on holiday gifts. Setting a budget is a great way to save (as long as you stick to it!) On the organized list you just made, put a dollar amount by everyone’s name and add it all up. Then adjust the individual dollar amounts to add up to your target budget.

3. DO Be a comparison shopper

There are so many websites that make it easy to compare prices from all different retailers. Our favorite comparison shopping site is ShopZilla.com. You’ll see several retailers offering your item for sale, as well as the prices. You might be surprised at how differently items are priced!

4. DO Shop with RockBottomT-Shirts.com

Obviously! We have incredible apparel at Rock Bottom prices for the whole family! We are always looking to save you even more money with great sales. Check our blog and website regularly and find us on Facebook and Twitter to make sure you never miss a sale!

5. DON’T procrastinate!

Getting your holiday shopping done early will keep you away from the crowds and the stress. When you wait until the last-minute to find a gift, you are more likely to throw the budget out the window just to get it over with. To make sure your gifts arrive on time, check the website for their shipping details and guarantees. To make sure your gifts from Rock Bottom T-Shirts arrive on time, be sure to place your orders by Wednesday, December 15th!

  1. Great tips….the Today Show just did a segment on this very subject this morning. Did you know there is a free shipping day online planned for December 17th? http://www.freeshippingday.com/

    • Hi Christy,

      What a coincidence, I am actually on your blog right now.

      Really, they did? Thanks for the heads up. The free shipping day is really good to know about also-as a matter of fact I’m looking at their website right now. The only thing I’m not really so sure about is whether we can be able to guarantee delivery by Christmas Eve if someone orders on the 17th. It’s certainly worth looking into though.

      Otherwise, thanks so much for the comment. We really appreciate that!
