How to improve your sports products buying experience

I had a great experience when I was scouting for the best outdoor basketball shoes for my son, before the sporting season began. As a customer it was a very enjoyable experience, the customer care was second to none and the staff were very patient and answered all my questions including, deals and promotions.

I hope everyone can have such a good experience as I did. Businesses have realized that one customer lost can drive several other potential customers and have improved their overall services and staff knowledge. But as a responsible customer what can you do to improve your purchasing experience.

Here are a few tips that can help you have a smooth shopping episode:

  1. Always choose a reliable online dealer of good repute. Read the customer testimonials and feedback before you make a purchase. This will prevent future heartache and loss of money.
  2. In case of apparel or shoes make sure that you have the correct measurements before you start on the shopping spree. Check out the size guide on the website and ensure that you are on the same page. In case you are shopping in a physical shop, make sure you try the apparel or shoes and only when you are comfortable should you proceed.
  3. Before completing the purchase find out the stores, refund, and exchange policy so that you are not stuck with goods which cannot be used.
  4. When shopping online always use a credit card in preference to a debit card as it is safer. Look for https and the padlock in the address bar to ensure that proper and secure encryption is in place for all your monetary transactions.

As much as the onus is on the retailers to provide a seamless shopping experience to the customers, the responsibility is on you to ensure that you are well informed on the product and follow all the required safety measures for hassle-free shopping.…


Shopping Options when buying a diet solution

The secret:

In a bid to unravel the secrets to the best shopping options when I am on a diet, I read chunks of literature. I made it to the library archives, the internet, interviewed friends clients, acquaintances, colleagues who said that a certain diet worked for them. In short, I had read a whole library on weight loss and how best to go shopping when I was a diet.

I am a freaking compulsive shopper:

Oh, wait! I didn’t tell you enough about myself. I am such a compulsive shopper that by the time I am only a few steps into the store, my cart is half filled. No not exaggerating!!
Promotions and offers used to excite me:

I used to be like Oh-mi-god! Look an offer!! And then I would hoard the cart with tens of packets to get good use of the offer. My coupons were yet another reason why I could never be successful at my budgeting skill or at dieting, sadly!

The first thing I learned about doing shopping when I checkout sona’s website is always and I repeat always better to carry a handwritten grocery list and then hit the store. The grocery shopping list helps the mind stay focused and less distracted from the impulsive cart filling that I was used to.

It worked for me!

Yippee, not once but tens of times I have been to the store with a grocery list and come out with only the things I had intended to buy. Whoa! Such a simple trick and I was never cash-strapped. Double bonanza that is!

The website gives out simple yet most sensible tips. For instance, one should look out for the whole wheat ingredient with at least a five percent finer content when shopping for bread and other bakes. It may look like it makes no difference but believe me it does. Whole wheat I any day better than the processed refined flour bakes. Now you know what you must carry to the store. Try it and let us know if it worked for you too!…
