Quad stuck in the mud

They helped me out of this

I got stick in the mud while riding my quad bike out to drop of some fish guts. There were 4 teenagers sitting on the beach that noticed my trouble. Often todays teenagers would just sit there and laugh – but not these guys; they happily came over to give their time and muscle to get me unstuck. Nice eh!

Ordinarily when someone helps me out I would buy them a bottle of wine as a gift or a bunch of flowers if they were inclined to appreciate that type of gift. But these guys were too young for that so I thought about what I could buy online and have delivered to their parent house as a thankyou. Teenagers all like chocolate, biscuits, cake and all kinds of goodies so I figured this was a perfect solution. So after a quick Google I found an online gift basket site that had a good selection and chose a hamper with mostly sweet products in it.

This is what I sent, it was well received and reminded me that it is so easy to take others generosity for granted. How easy was it for me to do a quick search online and find a suitable present for these guys. Update: I recently needed to find a suitable flower site in Australia for a thankyou gift. This one lets you search for an online florist in the header of the site

Tips for online shopping

Tips for online shopping

It is hard to dispute the wonderful benefits that online shopping can offer just about anyone. The best way to get the most value for your buck while shopping via the Internet is to do a bit of research in advance. By studying the information that follows, you will have the tools to be a champion shopper.

Before you being to shop on the Internet, make sure your antivirus software is up to date. Dubious websites surround online shopping experiences. There are even those that are simply looking to infect computers with viruses. Be cautious when using any website for shopping, whether you think they are safe or not.

If you have questions while shopping, look for a live chat function on the online store. Many big brands (and even some boutique stores) now have this functionality. You can chat immediately with a customer service representative to fix any issues or answer any questions before you purchase. That can give you a lot of peace of mind.

Keep an eye on your bank and credit card accounts. If you are shopping online, don’t wait for the end of the month to review your finances. Check your account online periodically to make sure that there are no extra charges. If you notice anything amiss, get in contact with your bank or credit card company as soon as possible.

Find sizing charts on any clothing site you use. Buying clothes online can be difficult because you can’t try the item on. But, many online clothes retailers offer size charts that can help a great deal. This will help you from purchasing a size that is much too big or small for you.

In order to save on shipping fees, it is best to get everything you need in one order. If you do not do it this way, you will have to pay a separate shipping fee for each order you make. This will end up costing you a fortune in the long run.

Sign up on online communities that focus on finding bargains online. Forum members post their best bargain finds and daily deals for other members to enjoy. This is a great way to stay posted on the bargains that pop up every day. You just never know if something that you want goes on sale.

If you have purchases that are not urgent to make online, wait until the holidays. Brick and mortar retailers love throwing holiday sales at times like Independence Day, or Presidents Day. The Internet mimics this often. Some online merchants offer big discounts and/or free shipping on holidays.

Do comparison shopping before making any purchases. This is true to for traditional shopping, but online shopping makes it really simple. All you need to do is a quick web search for the product and see what prices come up. If there’s a better price out there, you’ll typically know pretty quickly.

Online shopping is a wonderful thing in that it really does put the world at your fingertips. It is important, though, to know a few tricks and tips before hitting the keyboard and spending some money. By keeping the above information close at hand, you can take full advantage of everything the online marketplace has to offer.
