Holiday Shopping Tips
The holidays are a time to be especially mindful of ways your purchases can cost you more than
you expect. Here are a few tips to ensure that you get the most for your money and the most out
of your holiday:
•
Before you head out to get the latest toy or gadgets, make a list. Know what you’ve
already purchased and who you still need to find gifts for. And share your purchases with
anyone else responsible for buying gifts in your family. This way, you’re less likely to
purchase duplicate gifts or purchase an item for someone you’ve already gotten a gift for.
•
When shopping online, it’s wise to pay with a credit card instead of a debit card if
possible. Both allow you to dispute a charge if the merchandise never arrives or is
different from what was ordered. However, with a debit card, the price will have already
been deducted from your bank account and it will take time to get your money back.
•
When ordering online, look to ensure that your browser has a secure connection. In the
address bar, a padlock should appear if your browsing session is secure.
•
Some credit card providers offer one-time card numbers to be used for online transactions
to further protect your financial information. Contact your account holder to see if they
offer such a service.
•
Don’t forget, when shopping online, there are often additional costs, such as shipping and
handling fees. Be sure to include additional charges when comparing prices across
websites.
•
Some retailers may offer layaway plans or other payment plans so you can pay for that
must-have holiday gift over time or at a later time. Before you agree to such a plan, be
sure to ask whether the retailer charges fees to use its payment programs and whether the
payments and fees are refundable if a purchase is cancelled.
•
Keep your personal information safe. Never provide your credit card, bank account
information or Social Security number to a stranger. No reputable vendor or service
provider will ever initiate a call and ask you for this information over the phone.
•
Keep your receipts! And be sure you understand a retailer’s return and refund policies so
you can return any unwanted items in a timely manner and get a full refund.

Holiday Charity Scams
The holiday season brings a sizable increase in charitable giving each year as many of us open
up our wallets to donate to a favorite cause, help someone in need, or otherwise seek to support
our community and our neighbors. Charitable donations also make great holiday gifts.
Unfortunately, the holidays also bring out a high volume of scam artists always ready to take
advantage of the holiday spirit of giving. Here are a few tips to help you spot and avoid charity
scams during this holiday season:
•
Be sure you know that the charity is legitimate. In order to determine whether the charity
soliciting money is legitimate, first check to see if they are a registered charity with the
state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services at www.freshfromflorida.com or
by calling 1-800-HELP-FLA. You may also contact the Better Business Bureau's Wise
Giving Alliance at (703) 276-0100 to determine if the charity you are donating to has any
complaints against them.
•
Never give your credit card number or bank account information to a caller on the phone
or someone who sent you an unsolicited email. If you are interested in donating to a
charity that has initiated contact with you, ask them to send you a pledge form and
information about the charity in the mail. Legitimate charities should have no problem
with this request.
•
Watch for similar sounding charities. It’s not unusual for scam artists to choose names
that sound like the names of legitimate, widely known charities.
•
Do your homework and review the solicitation carefully. Be sure you understand how
much of the donation will actually go toward the work of the charity as opposed to
administrative expenses. Charities are required to register with the Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services and report the breakdown of their financial spending.
To learn more about a charity’s spending, please go to www.freshfromflorida.com and
click on the Florida Charities Gift Givers’ Guide.
•
Most tax-exempt organizations are also required to file an annual return or notice with the
Internal Revenue Service. The IRS Code requires automatic revocation of a charity’s tax
exempt status (some charities are exempt from this requirement) if it fails to file a return
for three consecutive years. Publication of an organization’s name on the AutoRevocation list on the IRS website helps potential donors determine the status of a
charity. To learn more about the tax-exempt status of a charity, go to www.irs.gov and
search the Charities and Non-Profits topics.

Product Recalls
With so many purchases to be made during the holiday season, it’s more important than ever
during this busy time of year to remain vigilant in checking to ensure that the purchases you
make are safe.
What follows is a compilation of 2014 product recalls in a comprehensive, easy-to-use guide that
we hope you will consult as you make your holiday gift purchases. The guide reproduces details
about toys, baby items, sporting and recreational goods, and household products recalled by the
U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission between December 1, 2013 and November 14, 2014.
For more information regarding these products or to check for recalls issued since November 14,
please go to cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/.
Dangerous and defective products are the subject of recalls every year, with more than 200
products being recalled in the last year alone. When a product is recalled, the law requires
manufacturers and retailers to remove the products from their shelves. However, products do
sometimes slip by undetected on shelves or may have been purchased before the recall. Many
products may also continue to be offered for sale online well after the recall through any of the
many online reseller websites. So, it is always important to do your research to make sure that
the products you are buying are safe and free of defect.
Taking a few minutes now, before you make your holiday purchases, to peruse this compilation
of 2014 recalled items will ensure a safer and more enjoyable holiday for you and yours.
