Home Living : January 11th 2011
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, January 11, 2011 3 Top time to take the tip HOMELIVING Now that the festive season is behind us, the real bargains are there for the taking. But Fair Trading has a few tips to ensure that you have a hassle-free post- Christmas shopping experience: Shop around and compare prices Keep your receipts in a safe place for refund and warranty purposes Check the sellers refund and warranty policy before you buy anything If shopping online, use only reputable sellers and sites. Beware of scams When buying products from overseas always check if the manufacturer has service arrangements in Australia. You don't want to get stuck with a faulty product and no-one local to fix the item Think twice before paying a deposit, as a trader may keep all or part of it if you change your mind Pay with cash or use lay-bys rather than credit. Then you pay no interest and the goods will cost you less Interest-free deals are not cost-free. You'll still have to pay ongoing fees Warranties You have a free statutory warranty whenever you buy an item. This entitles you to ask for a refund, repair or replacement if the product is faulty or breaks down soon after you buy it, if it does not match the description, or if the sample shown is not fit for its purpose. Before paying extra, make sure you read the fine print and check extended warranty terms, conditions and exclusions. Extended warranties may not always be good value for money. Credit cards Check your credit card statements carefully and make sure only the things you bought have been charged.
