Description

Shopping can be fun--but it can also be confusing. How do you know you're buying the right brand and model, or getting the right price? How do you find the best deal? If you're going to part with your hard-earned cash, you want to get the most bang for your buck, right? The secret is not just shopping but shopping smart. This book explores shopping from all angles. You'll discover * how to flex your muscles as a consumer, by doing product research and making choices that fit both your needs and your values. * where the deals are--from clearance sales to outlet malls to thrift shops. * all the ways to pay--including cash, debit cards, and credit cards--and the advantages and pitfalls of each. * how you can get your money back or even file a complaint if you're not a happy customer. Supplemented with articles and information from USA TODAY, the Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, Shopping Smarts delivers solid advice and firsthand stories of real teens facing many of the same shopping situations you are. Ready to wise up on shopping? Read on!
